paper leaves

In our home we draw together just about every day which means we have lots and lots of art that I refuse to get rid of! So I have been trying to come up with some creative ways to repurpose or redefine all that art. My latest project has been turning our drawings into colorful leaves that can be used for all kinds of fall (or seasonal) projects like wreaths, garlands and even whimsical branches...

Anche io conservo ogni foglio di carta scarabocchiato dal mio piccolo!
è l'arte più preziosa e libera del mondo!
La cosa che mi piace di più di te è che sei generosa con i colori, doni tutta te stessa nella tua arte e anche Lucy sta imparando questo da te!

Even I keep every piece of paper scribbled from my little baby!
This Art is the most precious and free of the world.
The thing I like most about you is that you are generous with the colors, you offer completely yourself in your art and also Lucy is learning this from you!

Fun way to reuse all of that great art! Thanks for sharing.
And I agree, that pic of Lucy drawing is the best! She's such a doll!

Your "matching" hairdos are too cute!
I do this too in a way, using bits and pieces sewn on to greeting cards.

What a great project! I love how it looks. I'm planning on making something like it for myself, using some of the papers that I've made in your classes.

She's so cute! A wonderful way to use those painted papers. I think I'll have to make myself a vase of flowers.
