October Colour Theme - Autumn Leaves

It's another colour theme week here on the Tando Blog. This months colours are inspired by the gorgeous colours of autumn, rich browns and oranges we are lucky to enjoy at this time of year.

Taking my lead from nature I have created this tag.

Here I have textured one of Tando's Mixed Media Boards using a woodgrain embossing folder, then painted it in various brown hues, before dry brushing this piece with a lighter colour to highlight the texture.

I have added the Tando Leaf embellishments. To give the an autumnal vibe they have been pained with a mix of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics in Green Gold, Raw Umber, Yellow Oxide and Pyrrol Orange.

Using a fine brush layers of the different colours have been added and blended to give a natural feel.

The loose leaves in the pack have been painted in slightly darker tones to give the impression that they have already fallen from the branches.
