First go out and scout for the best fall leaves. I had thw opportunty to travel to New York as you saw in previous posts and collected my leaves. I immediately set to drying them using what I had available including old shoppers and discarded magazines and let the leaves dry as well as kept them out of any sunlight. On the other hand I secured a bottle of Mod Podge at JoAnne Fabrics. If you look at the pictures you can see the process. You should paint one side at a time, turn it over, then paint the other side after the first one has dried. Another method is painting both sides the hanging them up on a clothes line but that is messy so I am going with mrthod one for the rest.
