Inspiration
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Even though I think acorns on their own are lovely to look at and feel nice to hold, they keep changing and growing to become something very different to look at and equally as beautiful.

I get a sense of peace and connectedness when I sit beneath a big old oak in the dappled soft light.

There's an old saying (minus the beginning part, "the mighty oak was once a nut like you". I like that!

Art Supplies Used
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I found a picture on Google and copied it in pencil onto my page.

Used Inktense pencils and pigment pens to colour and highlight; Pitt pens to give some shadow. Filled in the rest of the page with acrylic inks which I spritzed and mooshed around, added some stamping.

Used stencils & outlined the big letters in black Tombo ABT watercolour pen and spritzed with water.

Went around the big letters with blue watercolour to make them pop more.

Added some white watercolour inside the letters. Some white gel pen here and there to highlight but probably not visible in this photo.

What a delightful piece. The use of colour and composition are fantastic. I loved the comments you made regarding your page as well. It was much like I was sitting with you under the big ol' oak.
