The Small Leaf maples Comparison May to June

This was a very different print. both used a strong paper towel iron blanket. In their summer garb the maple leaves are quite subtle (on the bottom). In fact in the photo they are barely discernible. However now that the leaves have turned - green to gold and purple to bright red - the imprints are much more defined. The lacy green Japanese maple also prints much better once there is the colour change. You can see this at the top - Unfortunately in this photo it looks a bit like a dirty mark. The green maple once it turns gold is one of my favourite leaves to use as they always print well and look like little stars sprinkled across the surface
