Here´s what I did:

I´m working on a A5 size watercolour paper, that later on will go into one of my art journals.
I´m starting by applying white gesso through a stencil from That´s Crafty. Obviously it does not show very well on this photo, but I want it to act as a resist to the Brusho´s later on and hopfully will give a little interest to the background.

I´m going for a nature scene, and use Ultramarine, Purple and Turquoise Brushos.

I stamp all the trees from Rubber Dance Four Seasons stamp set, once facing up and once facing down as reflections in the water.

Now you get my idea :)

On a separate piece of watercolour paper I mix the Leaf green, Emerald green, Yellow and Lemon Brushos and stamp the four trees again. I use clear embossing powder and heat emboss the trees.

I fussy cut the trees and add Dark brown Brusho to the tree trunks. 
I use Rubber Dance Old Book Page stamp for some background stamping using 
Distress Oxide Wilted Violet.
I dilute some Aztec Metallics Light gold with water and make some splashes in the sky of my page.

I glue down the trees and draw a ground for the trees to stand on.
I stamp my quote from Rubber Dance Affirmations stamp set and also do a little journaling hardly visible in the grass.

Finally I add a touch of Dark brown and Leaf green Brusho on the reflections of the 
trees in the water and draw a black line to frame the page.

Here´s the blog hop line up for today!
