Playing With Leaves

This past week I’ve been creating and testing my new craft from last weeks post,”Anime Leaves.”

The top one was done on an actual ginko leaf and the few below where tested in the photo editing program, PicsArt.

I like the look of the drawings on actual leaves better but the lion one turned out pretty good :). The nice thing about the digital ones was that they were easier to make away from home. That and it gave me a better idea of what to draw later.

I’ve learned a lot of what I can and cannot do, what markers to use and ways to flatten the leaves(before & after drawing).

I even tried a way to preserve the leaves after being colored. Modpoge brings the colors out more and allows the leaves to bend without breaking. I received a few ideas of preserving them between glass in a frame too.

I’m not sure how long I’ll test this new idea, but I’m having fun doing something new for now ^_^. I have a feeling it’ll develope into something more soon. 😉

*Oh and before I go, I’ll be posting another post this Saturday. See ya then!

  1. I love these leaves, especially the ones drawn on the actual leaves. Maybe play with an interesting collage of such leaves that tells a story or expresses a play of feelings.
