Before you start, decide on the design. Draw the design with a 3D outliner. Here I am going to draw an autumn creeper. I have started from the bottom of the creeper. The base should be bit thick and gradually should taper down as it reach the edges. Leaves of an autumn creeper are seen in different colours. So to make the design more natural, use different colours. Here I am using dark green, red, orange and light green colours.
Now take the leaf., lets start with a dark green colour. Paint the back side of the leaf completely with the chosen colour. Now stick the leaf on the cloth and press well. Repeat the process. Before making the print on the actual material it is better do a trial on a rough cloth.
Once you finish with one colour, shift to another colour. But don't use the same leaf for the next colour.
Use different colours and finish the design. You can use any design and pattern. Leaves can be stuck in a straight line or randomly according to your aesthetic taste.
For the painting to last longer, iron the backside of the design. Ironing should be done only after drying.
