How To Imprint Leaves on Paper
I assumed everyone knew about this, but recently I met some people who were surprised to see my daughter and I creating art using this method. So I really wanted to show it off to everyone, it's quite simple..
I love using this technique as a way to teach my daughter about both art and nature, its a great learning tool. Try to use lots of different colors for each leaf and choose a variety of foliage.
This can be done with leaves, flowers, petals, stems, feathers, twigs... Endless possibilities!
Gather your supplies: Paper, foliage, and unwrapped crayons
Make sure to smooth it out so that it imprints properly.
Use an unwrapped crayon, rub the side of the crayon back and forth forcefully over the paper. Now you can see the imprint of the leaf.
Look at all the different leaves you can use, each is unique and beautiful.
~I'd love to see what you've created using this method.~
