Last Leaves




Well , it won't be long now until the last leaves will fall and the trees will stand naked. I love fall, the crispness in the air and beautiful colors of the landscape. I often find myself collecting fallen leaves. Why, I don't know, because they are beautiful and I can't resist I suppose. However this fall I did make a collage of some leaves I had gathered. I made a frame of twigs and acorns. I thought it would look nice hanging in my garden shed.

I love your framed collage. It will be the perfect reminder of fall when you are waiting for spring to arrive.

Stumbled on you blog from another and wanted to say that I enjoyed my visit. I love the collage and frame you made. Isn't it great how the simplist of projects can give the greatest amout of pleasure and enjoyment.

I really like your 'leaf art'. What did you use to glue the leaves to the paper? My niece and I could do something like that. It would be fun.

I really like your collage! What a great idea - I'll have to remember that next year when I have a shed and some leaves to gather. Thanks for sharing.
