Anyway, I knew that I also wanted to play with fall colors. I had today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop in my challenge log and realized that it was a chance to do a gray background with a vividly-colored leaf. I got back to "washing" first thing this morning - only three tries to get the background.
I'm not totally happy - I wish I had made the left edge of the gray softer and I wish the splatter were more around the leaf - but I'm trying really hard to embrace the lack of control! However, I love the colorful leaf - swirls of fall colors are fun to do and they definitely don't need control!!
