Woke up this morning and knew I wanted to make a simple leaf linocut to use in some ATCs.  I'm still new to ATCs, and today I felt like I really started to find my groove with the collage approach.  I think I will give this set of four to a friend for his birthday.

Should I frame them like this or in a single row?  Suggestions welcome.

I love these leaves!  I like either way of framing them - personally, I would like them framed in a single row - more impact, imo.  But they looked like stained glass 4-pane window when I saw them on the home page.  So either way will work.  You did a lovely job - I'll bet he will be thrilled to receive this gift from you.   Smiley

ooo, nice, fancybutch!  I think I like them how they are, with two on top and two on bottom.  Though it would probably be pretty in a line, too!  Its just all around pretty!

They are so beautiful. I really love the texture in the background. It makes me want to try linocut again...it's been since high school (gawd...19 years ago!!) since I've done it and I remember it being so much fun!
