LEAF PRINTING GREETING CARDS & CHARTS

LEAF PRINTING!  Such fun to use real leaves to print greeting cards.  I also made reference charts for future use so I know which leaves I would like to print again and how they turn out.  Some of the leaves were printed using rubber stamp inks and then adding water colors.  Some of the leaves were printed using metallic acrylic liquid paints.  Both were very satisfying.  The geraniums on the fan cards have added drawings of the geranium flowers!  The possibilities for fun with leaf printing are endless!

PATTERN IDEAS SERIES OF COLLAGE WITH DRAWINGS – This has been so much fun to find magazine images and then stencil in shapes, which I fill with tiny drawings shaded with black colored pencil.

LEAF PRINTING ON GREETING CARDS & ART jOURNAL PAGES – Such fun to pick a few leaves, use a rubber stamp ink pad to print them, outline them a bit with ink & then watercolor paint them.  Geranium leaves are especially beautiful.
