A-Z - F is for Foliose


This fortnights letter is F - not a problem, plenty of nature themed F words BUT the page must include a heart... that'll take more thought.  I don't want to do a page about a fox and pop a heart on it - that won't work for me.  So this is what I came up with...



Foliose means leaf like and some leaves are heart shaped, especially the Indian Bean tree leaves!


Also I used a pencil called Beech Green to colour the beech leaf - I can't tell you the amount of satisfaction that gave me!!


What do you think?  Was I too fast and loose with the theme?!

Linking up at The Craft Barn A-Z.

p.s.  Thanks for the tips on brown pens last week, much appreciated!  Trying a few suggestions - I'll have my results ready for the next A-Z post...

  2. I felt your pain of adding the heart as I read your post. I changed words myself as I almost forgot the heart and didn't want one on my first word choice. You worked out your twist with a twist of your own. PERFECT! And of course coloring the Beech leaf with a beech green pencil would put a little skip in your walk! I can relate! Great pages. I like that all the other words can still be seen quite clearly. I enjoyed reading your post.

  10. I'm REALLY late and know it, but I simply had to visit, even though the next CB challenge has already been posted. Your choice of words struck me as perfect, as did the heart twist. This is a wonderful addition to your dictionary. That really shows how well you thought outside the box!
