Creating leaves

Leaves are a subject for my art to which I keep returning.

Images from a notebook and from a carved lino block.
Stamped patterns on Aida cloth from my original carved lino blocks.

A piece of cross stitch with #8 perle cotton.
Painting small canvases with gold acrylic prior to mounting cross stitch pieces.
Making all sorts of leaves for appliqué on my "I Am a Tree" wearable art costume.

Appliquéing the small stamped leaves to the sleeves of the cotton jersey top.
