A nip in the air

The calendar says it's officially fall. I've put all my shorts away and started wearing shoes and sneakers again. And I've actually seen several trees starting to change color. So I decided to do a tile for fall.

I started with colored card stock. I used a stencil of fall leaves to create my strings. There are several leaf shapes on the stencil so I just picked a few and layered them. To get additional strings I drew a few vein lines in the leaves. After I did my tangles with a colored Prismacolor Premier pen, I shaded with 3-4 different shades of Prismacolor colored pencils. I really liked the way this one came out.

As always, your comments are greatly appreciated!


  1. Very nice! I've been noticing the shapes of leaves on the ground, too. I particularly like poplar; maybe I'll do something with them.

  2. Love your tangle!! The background really adds to the beauty of the tile!

  3. Gorgeous. The shading makes everything pop!
