I started out just making a circle of real ginkgo leaves,
since they are very fragile I had to well first I tried spraying
them with spray acrylic, just chased them around the cardboard,
then I podged them on the front let it dry then the back.
I used some huge pine cone leaves which I got in England.
I've been wanting to use my silk pods so I wanted them to be flowers.
I used and old stamp I made from the baked clay of a ginkgo leaf.
When I added the pods it became a face, AMAZING..
I used another pod I had picked up in a field not sure what it is
for the nose and mouth. I made her a fancy hat.
Now she is the Mother Queen of the leaves, LOL :):)

Hi Dianne, this little creation is just gorgeous! Ginkgo is my favourite tree ever (mine sadly died this winter), their leaves are so magical looking to me. I love what you have done here and I can see the face too! Hugs, Anne x
