My Leaf Wreath and Leaf Botanical Project

Okay, so here is the project I was talking about. I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased a cute book of fall colored cardstock. I also purchased one of those knives that can make precise cuts. It was recommended by the salesclerk and so was that strip tape that she sold me. I think this project will take a while to finish. I didn't realize, as I bought some acrylic craft paint, that I was going to have to put some life onto those leaves. I paint fairly well but ...oh my goodness, all those stems and veins I must paint on each leaf and not to mention the highlights and shadows. I think it will be fun and maybe it will look like a first grader did it (sorry first graders!) but I will have done the work myself. It looks time consuming doesn't it? I'm tracing my leaf patterns tonight! By the way, this project is in the current Family Circle magazine.
