A Little Abstract Art and a Leaf Print or Two…

We woke up at the crack of dawn again this morning, still getting over some jet lag. A cup of tea, a walk around the garden and it was time to pull out some paints and get busy!

We pulled out liquid watercolors and just smooshed them all around. No real rhyme or reason, the girls loved playing with the colors.

Next we used printing ink and a brayer to apply the ink to leaves from the garden.

We pressed them over the dried watercolors with wax paper to keep our fingers clean.

And this is what we ended up with. A bit on the busy, bright side, but fun and creative and not super messy. It was doable at 7am with children, that must be pretty easy!

    I love bright colors and this seems so easy. Great job I’ll have to try it. Thanks for a great idea that perhaps even this artistically challenged gal might do.

  2. These are amazing and so nice and simple to organize. Thanks for the idea!
