I thought I'd start a new series here. A place to gather together all the creative bits I've been doing with nature lately - the bits that don't quite fit into my 'Collected Treasure' posts.
I'm really enjoying using my natural, found objects as a little canvas to create on, or to alter in some way. I've been making lots of painted pebbles, looking out for the smoothest, round ones whilst at the beach. And painting on leaves too. I've even had a go at embroidering on them, like these French knots, sewn on to Magnolia leaves gathered from my Mums garden. They're surprisingly easy to work on, and almost leather like, so they don't tear or break. I must go and collect a few more!
You can see more embroidered leaves and painted pebbles in my first 'Creative Nature' post here. x
