Wishing You Well, Alan, Thank You.
As you know, Alan is having an implant today and yesterday his laminator smoked in its demise as it attempted to take the rustle out of Autumn Leaves.
I was impressed with his idea (as I find am with many of his creations) of laminating Autumn Leaves to create a modern take on the "Pressing" And, having a laminator lying about under the Bed doing nowt but getting in the way, decided I would have a bash at making an Autumn Leaf Creation.
Once I'd found a plastic wallet and worked out how to operated the machine, I had the problem laying out the leaves and getting them to stay put. As can be seen, they didn't, an not only that the plastic decided it would crease and wrinkle. In fact it probably looks better for being scanned and pasted into this post.
The idea is, I think, sound, and with a bit more care is capable of producing something rather striking.
