Autumn leaf paints

Autumn, autumn, what do you have for sale? A hundred thousand leaves on a heap! You have them in the fall for figuring out.. the leaves fall to the ground by themselves! I thought it would be nice to do something with it, too, but what? Under a Tree Tree I found large leaves.

I went to dry it between the pages of a newspaper with a heavy stone on top of it {so that it dries nicely flat}

After a few days of drying I was able to get started. It seemed fun to start dyeing them so I tried some out. I used Creall Orange Acrylics paint and green mixed Creall Pearl paint. This I applied to the sheet with a brush in parts. With a sponge I mixed the colors until I was satisfied with the color result.

Well dried and now provided with colourful wobbly eyes, a “person” began to emerge in the leaf. With a drawn mouth, it also got an expression.

Fun to do, not difficult and play with paint.. that's probably fun for kids to do!
