Look what I did with a leaf
“ Autumn is the second spring where every leaf is a flower”- Albert Camus.
What could be more quintessentially creative than turning leaves into a piece of art. My daughter and I played a litle more these summer mornings
and went around collecting lots of beautiful leaves of varied shapes n textures to make a leaf collage for her summer project.
Since my school days I’ve always been very fond of greens , collecting beautiful leaves n then pressing them in encyclopedias was one of my favourite activity which faded away with time.
'Leaf Man’ by Louis Ehlert revived my hobby n inspired me to make some leafy creations.
Amazing leaf art by Japanese artist Kazuo Akasaki was also a great source of inspiration.
The russian site with instructions on making a maple leaf bouquet is worth seeing. http://www.lobzik.pri.ee/modules/news/article.php?storyid=244 Hey I also cudn’t read the text but the pics are very much self explanatory.
My creations- Enjoy!!!!!
