Act ll of the Macro Leaf

My next step in making this little art quilt was hand painting the little pebbles to reflect a fall leaf color on the surface of the leaf. I used Seta color and Lumiere metallics specifically made for painting on fabric. I achieved the look I was after. Tiny orange crystals were fused in the few pebbles I did not color. Next will be beading and then I can fuse the turned edge down for a clean edge. I'm still liking the idea of the resin faux ivory piece along the bottom of the leaf vein. When this is finished it will be mounted on a 16x20 painted canvas.
