Of all the leaf shapes, I love the oak the most. There’s something inherently “fall” about it. Many other leaf shapes already have a meaning. Take the maple leaf for example. If you don’t think of Canada when you see the maple leaf there’s something wrong with you. And shapes like beech, hickory, and even most fruit trees are sort of non-descript oblong in shape. I like the shape of a ginkgo but I can’t look at one without thinking of dinosaurs lumbering by. I like the giant sycamore leaves, too. But the shape can look an awful lot like a maple on steroids. So an oak it is.
Ironically, the oaks don’t turn pretty colors the way the spectacular maples and plum trees do. The oak leaves just turn brown and fall to the ground. But here we are talking about shapes. With this filigree leaf file you can make your oak leaf any color or pattern your heart desires.
