DIY- Nature inspired Custom Artwork

I am always looking for creative ways to fill spaces on my wall with things that inspire me. I love to go for walks in parks and different trails and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. I often pick up leaves that I find on my walks as a keepsake of a walk that I have particularly enjoyed.

For my guest bathroom, I decided to use some of my favourite leaves as part of the artwork.

I put the leaves when I brought them home between two sheets of white paper and put them in a thick and heavy book for a couple of weeks.  Once the leaves were dry, I framed them in photo frames that I got from IKEA.

I really enjoy this set of artwork. It is a constant reminder to me of the walks I have enjoyed and of the beauty surrounding us.

    Looks nice, do you know the type of, genom etc of the leaves or plant, seems like that would be an interesting exercise.
