One a Day in May - Day 2

One of my greatest challenges is knowing when to say enough.  For this card I decided to let the simple beauty of these Japanese maples stand out against the rustic texture of the gladiola leaf paper.  I have to admit that I almost started looking for something else to add but I managed to stop myself...for now.

Japanese maples mounted with matte medium on hand made gladiola leaf paper.  The delicate leaves are also covered with a thin layer of matte medium to help stabilize them.


Thank you for taking the time to leave comments. It means a lot to me.
