I have been working on videos, some will be on Curious.com and others on my YouTube channel. One thing leads to another and where I thought I was just making a How-to Paint Leaves on Fabric video, it turned in several projects. I actually have two leaf videos; one for making the autumn color leaves featured here and the other is a how-to paint the green leaves which will be painted on fabric that has fusible on the back.
Here is just one of the projects… It is a reverse canvas using the leaves I painted, wonderful fibrous paper, paint, a mixed media dragonfly, and a real vine branch. It’s no masterpiece but it was fun to work through and make.
The blue background w/gold stamped dragonfly is fabric I painted for another project but I like how it worked for this one.
I only wish I had been videoing this project. I guess there may be another reverse canvas in my future but first I’m going to make an art quilt using more of these leaves because I just love painting them!
