The Christmas Wreath - I love this....

Today I love... this Christmas Wreath made from leaves of my favourite plants / trees - Magnolia Grandiflora.
The burnished sienna under side of the leaf provides a complimentary contrast to the smooth glossiness of the dark green top side. The shape of the leaf is perfectly spade shaped and is self textured when layered upon one another. The ribbon bow is a perfect choice with metameric (or shot) tones of mustard ochre and charcoal hues, making a structured piece also fluid. The mahogany stained door makes for a perfect backdrop.
Welcome to Christmas!
