Day #9 Bad Apples12 Days ❤ Wintmas 2018
Prompts:  Frost – Bright Snow

Today post is for the Day #9 prompts are Frost and Bright Snow, I’ve created something different for today painting! Instead of using watercolor paper. I’ve painted on a beautiful leaf that I have harvested in the wood. I love to use nature finds in my art. I love to paint on leafs and bark. I painted a frosty snow queen and added gold and silver spark. I am very pleased with this leaf it looks beautiful and is 3D since the leaf isn’t completely flat has a beautiful dimension! I carefully hand pick and chose my leafs to paint on it, I look especially for their shape and natural curves.
