Multi Colored Leaves
Here's some leaves I painted with slip yesterday. Can you guess my inspiration for these?
I won't keep you in suspense. See the potted plant, that's three coleus plants I put in a big pot on my front porch.
I wanted some color out front and I thought the bright colored coleus leaves would do the trick. I've always liked plants with variegated leaves. The fun part of coleus is the color doesn't follow the veining pattern, but is totally random. The coleus plants are getting so big I have to keep clipping them back. The porch gets morning sun and only a little direct sunlight.
After I slipped the leaves, I thought this kind of random and overlapped slip on the side of a vase, a platter, or just about any piece might be great. Hope you're having a good start to the holiday weekend. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
