leaf collecting "Happy Thanksgiving"

It's the season for leaf collecting. Tiny little maple leaves get blown to the ground. Some I press for use in later craft projects and some are stuck to an old plastic tin lid with vaseline then 'painted' with my prepared art clay slurry. Once a few layers have been applied they can be stored carefully until I'm ready to build up the depth of art clay silver needed before firing. I'll probably start this in time for Canada Day.

Not so much portable crafting as postponed crafting I suppose :)
