Bookpaper Leaf Rubbings

It's my turn to on the Noel Mignon Tip & Technique blog this week and this is what I came up with. :)

Looking for a new way to add leaf accents to your pages? Try this technique! :) This is something I saw on THIS BLOG where she made larger leaves for a decorative garland, I thought it would be great to use on a smaller scale as page accents.

First, you will need to collect various leaves from your yard/neighborhood. Collect small, medium and large ones so you have a variety of sizes to work with on your pages later on.



Then you will need some kind of bookpaper and several colors of crayons with the wrappers removed.



Next, place your leaf vein-side up underneath the bookpaper. Use the side of the crayon and rub over the top to create a leaf rubbing. The darker colors show up better. Try layering a few colors for variation!




Look how many different kinds you can make! :D



Cut out your leaves and now you are ready to accent your pages!

Guess what else I have for you? Two more sneaks of the upcoming Noel Mignon "Dear Santa" kit. This will be up for preorder on November 15th. :D :D :D




See you again, soon!

I love this idea! I have been thinking of scrapping our favorite dishes for each season for a while and didn't know how. This is great idea for our fall favorite!
