I couldn't not use some of the leaves from the beautiful little red Maple tree that's in the front of our house.  I picked some of the really red leaves, laid them out on a little piece of prepared cotton.  I rolled the fabric up with the leaves inside and stuffed the works into a little jar.

Almost immediately the liquid started turning purple.  After a few days, it was a beautifully deep purple.

When I unrolled the fabric, I was surprised to see 'stripes'.  You can see a black skeleton of each leaf.  Here is the fabric, which is purple, and some of the leaves, which are still red.
