Citra Solv Fall Leaves

Citra Solv is a great natural cleaning product that can be used to make really interesting sheets of paper by dissolving National Geographic pages. Citra Solv runs regular art contests, the current one is about Fall-ing Into Art.

I started by scanning a piece of altered paper into the computer, adding some fall color, then layering a scan of a drawing of fall leaves.

I started adding layers using Photoshop, drawing back into the image to better integrate the drawing of the fall leaves and the background.

Finally I drew spots on the leaves to relate better to the texture of the Citra altered paper.

Still time to enter the contest

Entries are due November 21. Get out your citra solv and get creating!
