In the recent coffee swap my partner had linked to this wall art on pinterest.

I really liked the looks of it and I made a version of it for my partner including coffee beans in the final product since it was a coffee swap Smiley


I liked it so much and had so much fun making it I made another version for myself.


The canvases for both projects were 11"x14" (I think).

I put this in the paper gallery even though there was painting involved as I think it is more about the paper than the paint.
Also, if I ever do this again I will not do as the instructions say regarding glue.  The link says just use a dot of elmer's glue in the middle of each leaf and then modge podge over everything.  I think it would be better to brush glue over the whole backside of the leaf or to use double sided tape runners.
