On a visit to the garden centre yesterday I picked up an oak leaf which was past its best but I love the way leaves decay and break down.
I scanned it on the computer and then printed it onto some silk that I had fused to vilene.
The colour turned out strange because I am running out of colour in my printer but I quite like it anyway.
Once it was printed I decided just to stitch with the machine as my hands were a bit sore with the cold weather having arrived. I added a little foil and it will be a book cover when I have time to finish it off.
