I mentioned last summer my fascination with all things botanical, and posted a project I did way back in 2001, inspired by a similar one in Martha Stewart Living. I also mentioned that I had scanned the original leafprints, and would try and share them with you someday. Well, it took me quite a while, and a surprising amount of work (I hate cleaning files off of old computers- what drudgery!), but I have them for you. Do what them what you will, but please don't use them for profit.
There are sixteen currently available for free download here. There is much inspiration to be found in nature. And there are also many inspirational sources here on the internet. Have you seen the beautiful wares created by Inleaf? And have you read the recent post about botanical inspiration on Decor8? Great stuff.
Please leave ideas for how these can be used in the comments, so others can be inspired too. And do send me pics, please. Enjoy.
PS- Let me know if there are any issues with the files right away!
Update: I have had a few emails asking about how to download the images. I joined Lulu under my husband's email address and downloaded them just fine, so I think it is working properly. If you "preview" the images a copyright symbol remains on them, but if you "add to cart" you should find download instructions. It would be helpful if a few people commented that they downloaded them successfully (although Lulu stats show that many people have)
