I made this for the Use the Good Beads swap recently, making an oak leaf wreath for my partner, thanate, with some of my paper stash...


I used a variety of papers, including some really loved  handmade coconut fiber paper, and painted them, before die cutting them with oak leaf dies.  I glued them to a base, but then felt it was kind of unfinished and bare looking as is...


So I carved the acorns from foam, and added a paper layer, then painted and glittered them to add an acorn dangle.  How sad is it that I actually have a bit of a foam stash too - from reclaimed packaging... I may just have to admit to a bit of hoarding...


Anyways, the paper was painted with washes of paint, including some pearl, gold, and copper, to add a bit of shimmer also, and bring some cohesiveness to the various papers, before cutting out the leaf shapes.


Way way more pics and some details on blog if anyone is interested in more...

This is so beautiful, I just love it. I'll be laughing all day over the "nutty dangle" part though, ha ha ha:D!
