painted leaves



I love autumn and one of my favorite parts of the season is all those fall leaves! For the last few years, it has become a tradition of mine to use those leaves as a surface to create on.

Any shape of size of leaf will work. I typically let the leaves dry out or even press them for about a week or two.


One they are dried out you can paint or draw on the surface! 



The result is a totally unique piece of art!

And for those who ask... no I don't do anything to preserve the leaves. So far my leaves have lasted for years and honestly there is something I love about creating art that is temporary!


Looking for more leaf inspiration?

wow!! and wow again! I was already being inspired by your pumpkins since I wanted to do a small project for my daughters desk @ her dorm and then THIS?? Now I gotta have a baskt in my car tomorrow to go leaf picking!! Thank you for always inspiring in such a way that small crafters like me can still feel that we can try this ourselves!
