Leaves of paper

Bold and beautiful leaf prints.

My beautiful girlfriend’s birthday is tomorrow and I made her some leaf eco printed paper to take on her mini holiday. She loves journals and paper and this was a great opportunity to combine my passion for eco prints with giving a gift to a friend.

It is the first time I have done this on paper and I was happy with the result. I think she liked them too.

Here are some pics of the project.
