Silver and Gold

It's always hard at this time of the year, the beautiful Fall leaves have dropped and snow hasn't fallen to cover all the boring grayness out there. 
But adding silver and gold leaf to my handmade paper sure brightens my day. 

I always store all the pieces left over from leafing projects in a container. First I painted the backside of a Maple leaf with glue and pressed it down on my paper and then just poured the little bits and bobs of leafing directly onto the glue. The edges of the handmade paper were outlined with stickles and the edges of the card are embossed with alternating silver and gold inks and powders.
