Maple Leaves

above image - sheet held up to the light

Then blended them up and added them to the pinkish pulp...... results interesting .... the leaf bits look shimmery and when held up to the light the leaf bits are transparent!! I can see that some more experimentation will be needed ..... this could be developed further...

I have a couple of bags of maple leaves sitting in my studio - so over Christmas I thought I'd do something with them ..... cooked them up and then forgot about them! Returned to the studio this week and found then looking and smelling a bit nasty!!! So added some bleach and left them for a couple of days and was amozed when the leaves had turned pure white!! They were very delecate so I tried to place them on a dark pulp ........
