Our collections – leaf design

Our leaf design collection was the first of our designs to be created and as a result has a special place in our heart!

The inspiration for this design has come from leaves that I picked up in Welfare Park across from our house and studio in Newtongrange. Initially I was interested in the colours of the leaves but on closer inspection many had been eaten away by some kind of insect, leaving lovely remains in the form of the negative space.

Once the leaves had been pressed each hole is traced, on tracing paper to be digitally scanned, coloured and manipulated.

When the images have been scanned, each is digitally coloured, repeated,  enlarged and overlaid each other to form the design.
