Leaf Painting

These giant leaves are from the beautiful Sea Grape trees around my patio.  They are the coolest leaves. When they fall from the branches and subsequently dry they are like paper plates - at least my kids think so. I have looked at them for a while thinking they would be great for making some type of stamp or print.  So yesterday I got the paints and brushes out and let the kids go for it.  I'm thinking this would look cool on a piece of furniture as well . . .stay tuned.
