Fall School Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Blessed Beyond Measure Stamp Set, Watercolor Paints, Paintbrush Set, Watercolor Paper, Artbooking Cricut cartridge, Rustic Home Fundamental Paper, Goldrush Ink, Black Ink, Pen Pal Alphabet, Picture My Life Card, and Rustic Home Ribbon Pack.

These leaves are great for watercoloring.  I love how the colors blended together and some formed lines (kind of like the veins on a leaf).  I used LOTS of water on these for good blending (I gave them a day to dry before stamping).
