Autumn leaves intervention

Autumn leaves
Found these on my walk with Turbo and gave them some TLC with my brushes and some paint.
I love the Fall! It's the season I am most inspired by.

Beautiful! Isn't God's creation awesome. We live close to the water, so my children and I (Israel 5, Areli 7 and Bethany 9) love to collect shells. They sometime do pick up leaves and feathers too - all of which I have been thinking about painting/dying.

I am so glad to see you back! (: ~Page

These are great! I think I might do this as an art project in my class! I'll have to wait a bit longer for the leaves here in SD to turn red and fall....those that do so, anyway. Not many do.

Speaking of interventions are you all caught up with lost?
I am not hopelessly hooked on madmen.
The attention to mid century style details is killing me.

So good to have you back, Geninne!!

These beautiful little pieces of art remind me of high school... we used to write poems on leaves, and give them to each other. We rubbed them with hand lotion to keep them soft. Thanks for the reminder, maybe I'll try it again. Except Florida doesn't have a lot in the way of fall leaves... :o(

A fabulous idea, really. And yeah, I love autumn too, especially the wonderful colors of leaves. What I hate, though, is what the leaves become after rain. Since I have had trouble with them in my garden since forever, I have actually recently written an article about how to get rid off them. You are welcome to read it.

I love the idea of this for one of our garden club programs. One of our members is an artist and I think if we could come up with a use for these it would be a fun project for our group. what did you do with your leaves after you painted them.
