Some New Art for You

Today, in the midst of racing around getting ready to leave for a few days,
I did manage to finish some original art I was working on.

It was inspired by a small box of dried out leaves (just the skeletons left).
I've had them for months,
and suddenly I had a vision of how to use them.

This is my finished piece.

I'm putting this one in the gift shop,
and have enough to make one more.

While we are on vacation, I will look for some more 'skeletons'.

I'm linking this to
Funky Junk's
Saturday Nite Speical.
Take a look and then join in!!

Thanks for coming by.

See you all in a week.

What a neat idea!! We all love antiques but never think to use an 'antiqued by nature' leaf. Brilliant thought! I love the soft overall look they achieve.

Thanks for linking up to the party!

It's fun making art from different materials.

The leaf is very creative.
