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?
