>More leaf prints underway


>Pulled out all stops to use up my entire fall leaf collection, and decided to bring in more colors this time.  I must have produced upwards of 30 leaf prints today.  In 100 degree heat on the patio.  All cleared out of leafs though, which, as Martha Stewart says, is “a good thing” (although in a totally different context, of course). 

I really enjoyed this project as it gave the opportunity to really experiment with color combinations.  And since I used some metallic paints, too, I think these combos will produce amazing results.  

The bummer is I have to wait for them all to dry.  It can take a week since we’re in the middle of summer with its high humidity.  I trust, given what I could see beneath the blur of the protective lining, that it will be worth the wait.
