The Wednesday Stamper - Leaves and Pods

A while back I bought a book from Amazon called Leaves and Pods, and I was so amazed at the beauty and variety nature holds. I'm also facinated by the symbolic meaning of the words representing the end and beginning of a life cycle... And I get dizzy thinking about how the blueprint of a huge tree can be stored in something as small as a seed...
Leaves and Pods...
Here's my 6x10 inch collage, the background is collaged, painted, doodled and stamped, the quote is by Paulo Coehlo; People since the beginning of time, have always tried to understand the universe through Love...
I painted and drew the girl and the Heart she's holding is an autumn coloured leaf, her hair is collaged images of pods. The images were googled.

Hope you'll join in on this weeks challenge over at WS :)
Hugs and smiles,
