In the 70′, an artist (unfortunately, I don’t remember his name) had an idea: to let nature paint pictures. He dipped tree twigs in ink, put blank pages underneath weeping willows’ branches and let the wind and twigs paint the pictures.
Well, I didn’t go that far, but I also used nature (leaves) as a tool to paint abstract pictures for my living room.
Here’s how I did that…
-few sheets of paper
-water based black paint (I used leftover chalkboard paint)
I used painters tape to attach leaves to the sheet of paper, and then I simply painted all over the leaves and page (slapdash style!).
I waited 10 seconds or so, and then I gently imprinted the pattern on two more pages .
I peeled off leaves and I left it all to dry.
Also, I found these old, slightly damaged Ikea frames and decided to give them a new life.
I used Rustoleum spray paint .
Hubby thinks it’s a 2 year old art, but I beg to differ :-D. Tell me what you think in the comments.
