AUTUMN LEAF PRINTING & COLLAGE POSTCARDS

AUTUMN LEAF PRINTING WITH PAPER COLLAGE LEAVES – These postcards were such fun to create with quotes about the season of autumn.  I used local leaves from the neighborhood & printed with rubber stamp ink, adding watercolor painting to a few of the leaves, too.  Origami and gelli printed papers cut out into leaf shapes added the perfect touch to collage fallen autumn leaves. 

USING LEAF PRINTING FOR A ONE-MINUTE BOOK!

LEAF PRINTING – Brush the backs of fresh leaves with metallic liquid acrylic paints.  Print on paper rubbing the back of the leaf with a soft piece of cloth.  Lift up the leaf to reveal the print!  Fold an 11 x 8 1/2 piece of paper into 8 sections and slit the middle 2 sections.  This one-minute book technique creates a French-fold handmade book! 

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me fluttering from the autumn tree.”  — Emily Bronte
