I first came across this leaf when I was out for a walk with a friend. As soon as I set eyes on the leaf I immediately fell in love the amount of colours that is spilled all over it. I don’t normally find many leaves that develop so many colour changes to it. I immediately imagined a colourful fabric that has so many colours on it which would be perfectly resemble the summer months. I want to try a bit of basic weaving hand dying fabrics and digital printing just so I can express getting as many rich colours as I can find coming from this gorgeous leaf and therefore put it into practise as a textiles artist.
