Good Saturday morning.  I had a good time this morning creating colorful fall  leaves using the new Impression Obsession Small Leaf Set and my pan pastel.  You can step by step photos of how I create my colorful leaves by checking out my leaves with pan pastel tutorial.

I think fall leaves are gorgeous and colorful and can stand alone as the main focal point on a project.  I like pairing them with a plain white or vanilla background to create contrast.

I like the decorative frame against the brick embossed background.  They add dimension and interest while still allowing the branch and leaves to be the main show.

I attached the end of the branch under the frame with glossy accents.  I popped up several of the leaves with rolled glue dots to hold them up away from the background for a natural look.  Here is a closer view.

I love this new small leaf set.  It is an exact replica of the leaves set and sized at about half the size.  They are the perfect size to work well with the Bare Branch.
