Glue It Tuesday - Stamped Leaves


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!


Come visit Aimee's blog at Artsyville and see all the other glue projects.

I love leaves, too. We've been tracking them into our house lately, which isn't as fun though, haha.

Great page...I love the owl stamp and the leaves below. The folded page for journaling is great too.
