Many people ask me what kind of leaves I use in my leaf art at Smoky Mountain Leaf Works. The easy answer is “all kinds.” I choose leaves that have beautiful colors and interesting shapes, both large and small.
One of my favorite leaves comes from the Eastern Redbud tree. A beautiful ornamental tree, the Redbud blooms in early spring with bright pink-purple flowers. My big interest in the tree, however, are the heart-shaped leaves that turn yellow in the fall.
Heart-shaped leaves make interesting heart-shaped leaf art.
