Garland of painted autumn leaves

 During a Sunday morning walk in the woods I gathered hands full of beautiful Autumn leaves.  Inspired by by this wonderful and creative site,  Autumn Ideas, I kept them in the garage to let them dry properly.

A few weeks later I was lucky enough to have the daughters of two good friends from back in South Africa, stay with us for a weekend.  They were spending the year en Europe, working as au paris in Holland and Belgium.  On the rainy Sunday we spent time being really creative and enjoyed ourselves  painting all sorts of patterns on the leaves.



The results were really amazing and the autumn leave garland is still hanging in our dining room!
