This last week, Lynne Mizera joined me here in the studio for some leaf play.
We ran 'leaf sandwiches' through the Sizzix machine using a variety of papers:
|You can see the mottled green cardstock did NOT take a print too well!|
|Dusty Miller foliage on watercolour paper|
|Top: grasses on printer paper Bottom: grasses on watercolour paper|
|Japanese Maple on watercolour paper|
|Horse chestnut leaves on Strathmore cardstock|
|Virginia Creeper leaves on Stonehenge paper|
These ghost prints will need very little enhancement to complete them, and the organic richness is fabulous, don't you think?
The first prints will be fun, too, since some of that doodling time is coming in handy as I fill in the empty spaces.
I'd love to know how you play with leaves in the summer. Do you paint on them? Do you print them? Emboss them? Use them as stamps? Do tell in the comments below, and if you have a link to some photos, we'd love that too!
