DIY FALL LEAF DOODLE TO PRESERVE FALL

Leaf doodle to preserve fall!

I wanted a way to preserve the color and feel of fall and display it in my home so I decided to go on a leaf hunt to find the perfect leaves to doodle on.

I usually gather the brightly colored leaves in orange, peach and yellow but since I was doodling in white and gold  I was challenged to find leaves that would contrast.

I found deep rust and burgundy colored leaves that were perfect for this project.  The shapes of these leaves are the shapes I include in my paintings and drawings over and over again.  Perfectly simple.

My trusty gold and white Sharpies were my tools of choice.  Applying ModPodge helps to preserve them.
