Peacock Feathers

The colors in this leaf print remind me of peacock feathers:

leaf printing with all techniques

I printed my leaves with acrylic paints.  I then decided to experiment and combine watercolor, crayon resist and water soluble markers.

I would not have thought of combining these techniques if I had not taken Carla Sonheim’s FREE Art classes for Kids!

I started playing and had so much fun!

I have found a new way to create papers for my collages!

I just love the bright colors!

I also had to make a bird!

Happy Creating!  🙂
