Leaf Art with Eastern Redbud Leaves

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.

I live in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. I love to read, work in my flower and vegetable gardens, feed and watch the birds in the yard, sit on the front porch looking at the mountains and go camping. I also like to watch wildlife, including my cats and dog (ha!). I write online articles on a variety of subjects. Check out my book reviews at: http://readerjots.wordpress.com, wonderful nature stuff at http://mynaturenotes.wordpress.com and assorted articles on interesting stuff at http://Esmeowl12.hubpages.com. My first ebook was published in January 2012: "Alphamania: An Alphabet Resource for Teachers and Parents." Check out the blog at http://alphabetletters.wordpress.com.
