The colors are shifting in the leaves, and trees are ablaze here. Even a rainy day is pretty, and just intensifies the tones. I was inspired to make some Ikat canes and convert them into leaves. Of course, they needed matching bracelets, too. I'm particularly fond of this lime-orange-purple Ikat color combination. It does look like so many of the leaves falling from the trees in my yard.
Then I drifted to a purple-red-green combination. So many of the deeper maples have all three shades together on each leaf.
Finally, I couldn't resist a turquoise-purple-deep green combination. Granted, none of the leaves around here are actually sporting these colors - but wouldn't it be amazing if they were!
