Lovely leaf printing

Another wonderful ‘slow’ Autumn activity. This one is great on so many levels – the excitement of going out to collect the leaves, the anticipation of getting home and doing the craft and then the enjoyment of the whole creative experience, exploring colours, mixing paints, designing and refining. We found that instead of dipping the leaves in paint, it’s actually better to use a paint brush to spread the paint out on the back of the leaves. Much better leaf prints result!!!  NB we used paper plates again as palettes. See the link below.  ‘Slow-tastic’ fun!!! (now there’s a new one for my glossary of terms!!!) Enjoy 🙂
