Trees: autumn 

My autumn project for my year long study of trees was inevitably going to involve leaves!

I collected a range of leaves and preserved them in glycerin. I then used them to create a collage type thing along with lace, fabric, old book papers etc.  The effect on the corregated card in the background was made by mixing paint with some Golden Clear Tar Gel and dripping over it.  It’s hard to photograph by the drips are sort of draped across the bumps and add some great texture.

I’m part way through my winter trees project and then January sees the start of my year long look at the caterpillar to butterfly process!  I’ve already started collecting bits and pieces and have a few ideas!

Does anyone else focus on a particular theme for a year?
