Q&L Challenge 2: Silence and/or Dazzle

Hi folks :D The new word choices over at The Craft Barn for their Q&L challenge this time, are Silence & Dazzle. I chose Silence for my word and had lots of fun creating my page.
I started with a page, that I had previously played on with some acrylics & stencils, because they were the 'right' colours. I added stamped leaves, acorns & tree outlines. I also glued down some little button leaves & an acorn. I sketched a very simple line around the words trying to make the shape of a tree, (don't laugh).
And finally, here is a close-up of the quote I used. It's also easier to see some of the stamping here too.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you can make time to visit some of the fabulous artists whose links can be found here The Craft Barn
*hugs* Mo :o)
