I second the project book idea. You have the best arts and craft projects! I am completely stealing this idea as soon as our leaves start falling. Hey, what can I say, this is Texas!

Diane said...

These are so great. I especially love the titles of each masterpiece.

Thanks for sharing!

Melissa said...

Those are GREAT! I bet my kids would have an absolute blast with a project like that.

Can you believe now that I live in the home of the Long Leaf Pine, I had forgotten about leaf pressing, I'll have to find some trees with leaves we can press for Shelby!

I love those! You are so creative!

I usually don't get beyond, "Ummmm, let's put paper over them and do leaf impressions .... then, let's, ummmm, throw them away."

Gabrielle said...

Absolutely gorgeous, and I love the names you chose for the artwork of your two littlest ones!

Katie said...

I am intrigued by "Rhapsody in Glue"'s use of the various shades of purple....

Suzanne Temple said...

Yes Katie, Zachary is a master artist. Oh, except that he wanted nothing to do with the leaves, thank you, just glue. More glue, please. I need more glue...

Hi there, here via As Cozy As Spring. Love this idea - and especially the "Rhapsody in Glue" which I think looks arty enough to hang in a frame!

Alice said...

The boys inherited your talent! I love it!

I'd love to hang their "leaves" artwork (framed) on my walls. What beautiful work. Our children and grandchildren are also very
artistically inclined so we enjoy
their work for our own home.
I will be printing their work
if I can figure out how. thanks.
Grandma Millie

What kind of glue has the beautiful colors?

These are so nice and creative!

Margaret said...

What a creative idea. These look great! Thank you for sharing.

Suzanne Temple said...

That's great Grandma Millie, thanks for visiting. Jengm, that glue was actually blue it came out looking green from the camera flash and the paper. It is a kind of Elmer's that is clear blue. It dries clear. Thanks for visiting margaret.
