|Mulberry leaves © Karen Thiessen, 2013|
I live in a city that is populated by mulberry trees tucked away in alleys. During mulberry season my hubby and I go on after-supper mulberry-eating walks. Last summer I pressed a fresh mulberry leaf in one of my sketchbooks. I scanned it and imported it into Adobe Illustrator where I traced it and then put it into repeat. The negative spaces are rather nice.
