During a lovely walk, I selected different types of leaves, and brought them home.
|willow, maple, cottonwood, sweet gum, birch|
|Paper Birch leaves are so elven and delicate|
|all the yellow leaves|
The cottonwood leaf surprised me, because looking at it, there is such a symmetry about it. I ran with the cottonwood shape. I tried out the symmetry theme, but didn't like how it turned out, after two tries. So, I decided to monotangle a series of cottonwood leaves.
I hung them on my wall with sticky stuff:
And, I also went with a variety of shapes. Initially I wanted to do everything with paradox as I did the original maple leaf, but when I looked at the string of the sweet gum leaf, it demanded betweed....so:
|sweet gum leaves, framed|
|maple leaf, red|
And here is the montage, as it is on my wall:
