“Leaf Art” was the theme today for our Pinterest Craft Day.
Greta made a cute little banner by pounding fresh leaves onto muslin triangles.
Here she has finished pounding the leaves, but she has not picked the moist leaf pieces off the muslin yet.
Here is a finished muslin triangle…
…and her leaf banner.
Kathy and Adie made marbled leaves using shaving cream and acrylic paint.
After cutting leaf shapes out of cardstock, they covered the bottom of a plastic container with shaving cream. Next they swirled in several layers of acrylic paint, and marbleized it with a skewer. They poked the leaves into the mess, pulled them up, and let them sit to soak in for a few minutes before using a squeegee to wipe off the excess paint and shaving cream.
Marbleized and drying.
Leaves used in a banner.
Heather didn’t do a leaf project; she worked on her project from last session. She is continuing work on her stenciled canvas with old keys.
She cut key shapes from paper and laid them on a bronzy painted canvas. Then she began spray painting over the whole thing. She has many more layers of blue spray paint to do before she peels off the paper keys to reveal her bronze keys under the blue paint.
