this is such a cool concept. Wouldnt mind trying art on a leaf. Could I ask are the leaves still slightly soft as I imagine a crispy leaf may just break on you

The leaf was pretty crispy but I had squirted some water on it and let is sit, it actually got more pliable. I was rather surprised.

i opted for fresher leaves in the end also learnt the need to pin them with bluetac to stop them from curling

Oh my goodness... I have officially been inspired to draw on leaves. What made you think of it?

I just was walking at my favorite place to walk and saw these awesome leaves on the ground and thought maybe I could draw on them. Lol, I am not a very complex person.

I never imagined drawing on a leaf.  This looks every bit as incredible as it would be on paper.

I saw you're video on Super Doodle pens do they glow in the dark with a blank light?

:wow: That came out amazing and having just watched the video makes it even more so. When I realized it was a leaf I thought it would be too brittle- 'cause I associate yellow leaves as going dry and brittle- but upon closer look it appears to be the underside of a leaf right?

That, and I didn't realize how skillfully you blended until I saw your video; but then again, I'm pretty ignorant about gel pens. It never occurred to me that you could blend the ink while it was still wet...and yet I realized that even regular pens can smear if you don't let them dry first...:laughing:...yeah, I can be such a blonde at times :laughing:

Really pretty picture and cool video :thumbsup:

The leaf was decently brittle. But, I dipped the leaf in some water and it made the leaf more flexible to work with. I didn't even know that would work but it did.....thankfully.  Thank you so much for taking your time to comment and to watch my video. I really appreciate it! <3
