Nov BJP


This month's piece is very spare, but I wanted to use the leaves a friend gave me. Sandy in La Center

It may be spare, but is lovely all the same. What a great friend to give you those leaves. This just screams Autumn. I like it.

You made a lovely arrangement of the leaves! Also I've noticed that sparce/simple designs can give exactly the intended message. Please tell me, what are the leaves made of and how did you attach them?

It really doesn't look sparse. The beaded veins really make the leaves pop out from the background. I think it's a very nice page.

Well, I think it has a lot of texture in spite of your thinking it is minimal. So beautifully done and perfect for the season.

The leaves in the piece are a silky probably polyester and were part of a trim that comes as yardage, so I still have plenty left. They are only attached by the beading. Sandy

What a stunner! Wow!

Are those swarovski pearls you used on those leaves or just regular pearls. 2 or 3 mm. Very nice works give a unique and very nice look.

Actually, the beads are just copper colored seed beads. Sandy

Awesome artwork Mom!
I like minimalist anyway but the plain matte backing really sets off those lovely leaves. Where's the teal? I keep looking for a shiny teal beetle or something...
