BEST VIEWED IN LARGER VERSION!!!
another rainy day,, so ran outside and picked some different shaped and colored leaves from my shrubs and trees..
decided to give my scanner a chance to become a useful tool for art..
laid out the leaves layering over each other on the glass of the scanner, closed the lid,, scanned and saved to photo shop….
