Crafty art: Twan van Keulens falling leaves ABC
Dutch graphic designer Twan van Keulen takes the childhood game of collecting and pressing leaves a bit further with these hand-cut letters.
The 25 year old says he were inspired by falling leaves for this typography project and that there is not a moment in the day where he's not thinking about designing something. He even tries to make a lot of free stuff, just to keep the ideas from piling up in his head. Apart from digital work, he experiments with cut-outs and even stains.
Sounds like crafty love to me.

Want to make your own? The summer and autumn months are perfect for collecting an array of different leaves for arty projects. If you want to make cut-outs like these though, I recommend that you do the cutting, using a scalpel, before you press and dry the leaves, because the drying will make them brittle.
What wonderful leaves would you use for your project, and what would you make? Let us know by dropping a line in our craftabulous comments section.
