Leaf Printing on Greeting Cards & Art Journal Pages

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.

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
