Ode to Autumn- mixed media

This is a canvas I did last year. Today  I’m delighted that it has been featured in the October/ November issue of

https://www.mixedupmag.com/

I wanted to depict the colour and randomness of Autumn so I’ve  added a lot of textural layers to this piece.

The layers:

 

The leaves: I used some tags and inky backgrounds that I had made a while ago because I liked the colours and foiling.

 

Additional texture and colour:

 

I decided to add two toad stools. I edged the frame in black and sponged some white ink over the background,dulling it slightly, so that the eye would be drawn to the centre of the piece rather than the background which had similar competing colours. I also added some sparkle paste to highlight some of the texture.
