Challenge #186 - Leaf String

This week's diva challenge was to use leaf shapes as a string - as I don't really do strings, I've just used leaf shapes instead :)


When I saw that leaves were the theme this week, one of my favourite earlier leaf designs popped into my head - I still really love it and incorporated similar ideas on this piece.

Really love the how the aquafluer worked across the leaf shape.......requires more intense investigative research I think!

I'm having a bit of a string renaissance of late, also, it's appearing on most of my journal pages :)

Have a good one!

  12. Love the flow of this. Add a little color, or could leave it the way it is, and it can be a very nice holiday card.

  13. You are such an amazing artist Helen. I really love your strings but I wonder, do you draw the strings first or the objects first? How do you get the string in front of the object if you do the object first? Perhaps you could do a video sometime showing us how you do this.
