DIY Metallic Leaf Art

I love trying out new product, and I recently was able to try out one of DecoArt’s new product called Texture. It’s a fun paint that has the consistency of a spackle.  I thought it would be fun to really play and see what I could do with it, and this DIY metallic leaf art was the perfect way to try it out.

I had a few large leaves lying around, and decided to try using it almost as a molding compound. You can see the full step by step project here on the DecoArt blog, but I put a little video together to show you a bit of the project behind the scenes:

While it comes in a lot of fun colors, I have to admit, I am sucker for the metallic paints, especially this time of year. It was fun to use it in my fall decor, and I love how the impression turned out.

There’s something about the approaching holidays that makes me love everything glittery and shiny (even though in a few weeks, I am going to be cursing glitter. I think by the end of December last year, I am sure I had eaten about a pound of it unintentionally.). I still love Christmas, and I still get that special thrill when I open my (affiliate link) Christmas decorating book every year! While I can’t stand to see holiday decor in big retail stores in August, I do get a little excited when I see everything come out about mid-November. It reminds me that the Holiday Housewalk is coming up!

I am excited to see how else I can push the limits of this product and see what else I can do with it. I think it has a ton of possibilities in making home decor, and used in mixed media!
