I really love leaves!
I see them everywhere.
Gathering on my front and back lawn, IN the house, on my "dropsheets" and now in my artwork.
When I created my November BBArtisans Challenge (which was also a Glue It Tuesday post) I stamped maple leaves after everything else on the spread was finished. This week, I created my page centered around the fallen elm leaves. First I stenciled a tree and owl. Then I glued the leaves on the bottom of the page. To make a landscape, I glued down some extra recycled paper mid-page and made hills.
The last thing was the background - I stamped and watercolored a sky and glass.
And of course I had to write something to remind me of the day! It's hidden underneath this flap.
I think I must have carved the two leaves last autumn from some Speedy Cut printing blocks I had around the house. I love the dual purpose of stamped images. I stamp directly in my artwork, while many end up on dropsheets that I lay on my table. Before throwing the paper away, I cut out the stamped images. The elm leaves were easy to cut, not like the maple leaves!
