Default MIX343 Leaf while you can (8-23-19)

Challenge title: Leaf while you can
Hostess: MariLynn
Keyword: MIX343
View the Gallery for this challenge HERE.


Fall is almost here. It seems that I don't think about making fall projects with leaves until the leaves start to turn color. Bad thing is that by that time the leaves are already starting to "die" and are not as supple as they are when they are still green. There are lots of fun things you can do with leaves and mixed media. Here are a few ideas to get your creative energy jump started:
1. make a leaf rubbing with a crayon and real leaves.
2. stamp with a real leaf.
3. make a mono print using a gel plate, acrylic paint and real leaves.
4. pounded leaves (put your leaf between 2 sheets of paper and run them through an embossing machine) Thanks Angela for the reminder about this technique.

If you don't have any real leaves...
5. Use a leaf stamp.
6. Draw your own leaves on your project.
7. You can make a leaf embellishment using
EMBOSSED ENAMEL LEAF TUTORIAL
or
BURNED PAPER BAG LEAVES

I have shared some of the art I made using leaves. I did option #3 with my gel plate leaves and acrylic paint. I am going to use a couple of these to make cards. But as a reminder to you and to me as well, for it to be mixed media, it needs several different types of art medium. So I might add, ink, stamping, colored pencils, watercoloring... I will share in the challenge gallery. I hope you are inspired to create art.

To make my mono printed leaf print into a mixed media card, I added white gel pen, black ink pen, and a stamped sentient with black stazon ink.

I posted early, so I hope that everyone will be able to play along with my leaf challenge. I tried to keep it open ended enough that everyone should be able to find at least something that they can do with leaves.

MariLynn, it sounds like a fabulous challenge. I would love to do the leaf print where I think you run it through the die cut machine and press the leaves. I haven't tried that yet. You gave us lots of options! Thanks for posting early!
