Tissue Leaves

The challenge I had with this piece was actually the use of the compound paths in half of each leaf. Turns out "draw inside" doesn't work with them. So, I had to duplicate the main leaf shape, clear its fill and then draw inside of that as a clipping mask. I then just left it over top the original compound path, which seemed to work nicely.

Here's the finished image in its entirety:


I liked the effect of the image breaking the background frame. Otherwise, I find the white outline unattractive. The original image is from Unsplash:


I'd like to find a way to add in some of the blurry leaves in the background without killing the tissue effect.
