Picture of Autumn  Glow
I am always fascinated by the leaves changing colors in autumn.Specially the Ahorn leaves.I hate this season because of the rain and wind,in the mean time I love to see the golden colors of the leaves.Every year I make some thing nice with these beautiful Ahorn leaves.Unfortunately I do not have  step by step pictures to upload in this site.Now that I came to know this site  I decided to publish what I  make this year.I am so happy that it turned out very well and gives a nice atmosphere and a  romantic feeling  in our  living area, where I spend a lot of time in the evenings.On a cold windy night I switch off all the lights and have only this glow on while watching the television.

Now it is already rainy season and end of november,  it was  hard to find the beautiful golden colored leaves.The leaves had all fallen off the tree,they were wet.damaged and dry. Some how I managed to gather the last few golden colored leaves.

Step 4: Separate

Back home  I cleaned them up and separated in to different colors ,so that it is easy to choose the desired color leaf when I make the flowers.

Step 5: Assemble

Choose  the desired medium size  leaf that you want it  to be in the middle of the flower,fold inwards the right side facing upwad as shown in picture one.
Picture  two and three shows that it is folded from all sides.On the fourth picture you will see that I have rolled the folded  leaf to make a tiny bud.Following the rest of the pictures you will see that leaves are folded and added to the bud.

Step 6: Shading

If you want a lighter shade ,then fold inwards the wrong side facing upwads. Then you see the bud is in lighter color.
