We have a nice hornbeam hedge around the half of our property - 40 meters to trim twice a year- inside and outside . What means plenty of work for hubby and me, but we love the high green fence and the birdies love it as well.
I took some of the leaves and dried them and ironed them between kitchenroll- and backing paper .
I covered them partially with white gesso and other acrylic paint and collaged them with scraps and all kinds of other stuff in one of my Altered Books. After everything was dry I sealed all with acrylic varnish spray in matte.
I accented with stabilo all in black and with a white correction pen.
Some random marks were made with pencil, others were stamped.
