Leaf printing

Finally a minute to enter the latest Paper Artsy challenge, Autumn Leaves. Rather than stamping my leaves, today I stamped WITH them!

I decided to use old hand made papers and painted my leaf with a brush, applying several colours of watercolour paint (I used paint in tubes). The same leaf can be used over and over and one can quickly build up a stash of printed papers!
I added some leaf brads and, for no other reason than I had it close by at the time, this piece of ball chain, a broken remnant of something or other!

Thanks for coming by,
Also entering the SSS Wednesday challenge.

    Je suis également en train de m'amuser à faire des fonds de pages avec de vraies feuilles... Un vrai régal.
