Living that Leaf Life

You up for a DeBrosse Maker Challenge?!

Time to set aside that to-do list + do a little selfish making. I find that taking time to just enjoy making (ie. not fulfilling orders or designing new products), always refreshes me.

So for the month of September, I wanted to encourage the community to play around with leaves to welcome in our favorite season! (I mean to be clear...it is our favorite season right?)

Use or write a leaf pattern of your choice + shoot it in whatever context is uniquely you! Tag me (@debrosse_nyc) + use #DMC🍂 (dmc = Debrosse Maker Challenge, and be sure to include the leaf emoji!) so I can story my favorites all month long.

Below you'll find the pattern I used for mine. It works up really quick + I even learned a few new skills to pull it off (linked helpful videos below for my visual learners).

Happy leafing!
