The deadline for participation for theproject is this Saturday, March 15 so I knew that I had to come up with something quick easy and already half finished- not always easy for me!!! First of all I would have to find what I needed - so that meant that it had to be close tot he top of my piles......... (more on the studio cleanup later!) The project entails collecting leaves created using fibers of all sorts, made to withstand the elements (this would be an outside installation). The whole project is explained at the link above- click on the Tree Project icon once you get to the site.
I took some of my gelatin printed fabric that I had overstamped with metallic purple and turquoise and stitched it between a plastic page protector in a simple leaf shape. I sewed a mid rib space so I could insert a wire and created a little loop at the stem end of the leave to hold the wire in place. All done. In the Mail!!!!!
