Colorful Leaf Prints | CMSMatHome


Good morning from #CMSMatHome!

Let’s make some colorful leaf prints today. Get some paper, preferably white, and some felt-tip markers. Gather freshly-picked leaves, but look for sturdy ones with strong vein structure. Color the back side of the leaf (where the veins are) with your marker, then press the colored side onto the white paper, transferring the ink. Continue the process until you’ve filled your paper or created artwork that you like.
