    scarlet oak leaves

    Visited an amazing deep-red scarlet oak in the fall (UVA premises). I did so to have a closer look at the acorns, and ended up leaving with a hand full of fallen leaves.

    I pressed them between heavy sheets of paper under about 20 pounds. They retained color and dried fully.

    Carefully selected shapes within a pile of leaf variety…laid them out loosely until a final design was created.

    Glued each piece down, one by one, with a drop or two of modge podge (decoupage glue).

    Photographed with care to stabilize the camera so that some detail could be retained.

    That's it!

    It's snowing again…my goodness.
