    Have clients who have generously given my leaves to compost. I shall repay them by making a bowl. Thanks for the idea.

    I like the idea of using preserved leaves so the project can be done at any time. I can also choose colors that mother nature might not provide me this year!

    I tried using Fall leaves to decoupage an old suitcase an it was beautiful! But... when the weather got humid the glue turned opaque and got so soft it began to separate from the surface. This happened when I used them to cover a bowl also. Not sure

    You know.. it probably would have! I didn't know about sealing products at the time.
