  4. Adjust each leaf in an approx 4x4 inch area
  5. Some Leaves that have a fill (two colors showing), you will need to go to the layers panel on the right and select the eye icon to hide that layer so it its a single layer leaf
  6. Change each leaf color according to your paper color selection

  17. Fan out small strips onto leaf and glue each tip down so it looks like the veins of the leaf
