Another in my leaf series! I could bore you forever with these.
I just love leaves. I didn't set this one up - it's just as I saw it.
V1 with a Jocelia border.
V2 the original.
Thank you all for approval of Leaf on Tree Trunk and special thanks to
Billy for his precious User Award once again!
KateGrinGrinGrin
I've attributed this frame to Jocelia who has indeed done many artistic borders and filters
but it was Joline who recently sent me instructions to improve on what I was doing before

They are both beautiful, Kate. I prefer V2. Sometimes you just have to take a photo for the title.

They both look good, Kate, a lovely harmony of colour and the curve of the wood enhances the background.
