Leaf Experiments

I want to stitch the leaf, the big one in my last post, to the fabric it is photographed on.
But first I needed to try it on a different leaf.  It worked!
I used Decoart Media Liquid Glass on these.  I read reviews that said it leaves things pliable, and that was what I was hoping for.  When it was dry, I put the needle to it. It worked really nicely.
I did find that the holes created by the needle were not as pronounced-mess up-disrupted when I put the needle down through the leaf.  So come up through the fabric, and down through the leaf. 
Not a great enlargement, but it gives you and idea of how the holes look.

Interesting! Will the leaf stay like that or is there some degradation that may continue as it gets older?

I'd love to try this, maybe add glass #11 beads on the stitches around the red leaf. I really like this!
