Autumn Leaves book

The leaves are amazing at the moment, colours from bitter yellow to dark brown, orange, red and pinks.  I want to make a concertina book using the leaves collected this month.

Subs brought me some Bean Tree leaves as well as lots of different leaves from the gardens he is working in.

I am monoprinting the leaves using water based printmaking inks on hand-made Indian paper.  I will add layers of different colours that overlap and show through.  I am mixing the ink with extender to provide transparency.

I think I have added enough leaves now I have to make these into a concertina type book
