creating with leaves


leaves of autumn © kristin chapman 2012

Fall is my favorite month, I love the autumn light and the array of vibrant colors. Earlier this week while on a neighborhood walk with my little, we spotted a few trees near our home that are going through different turning stages. Collectively the trees are producing a rainbow of colors. I thought this would be a great opportunity to work with color in nature by making just a simple collage with all the colorful leaves. Of course after my little glued a few leaves on the paper, she was ready to move on. Leaving me with a pile of leaves and my own imagination. So over the last few days I have been making temporary pictures with all the leaves. It’s really fun, and slightly addicting! I encourage others to give it a try. K
