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.
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
