After collecting 5-6 favorite leaves we put on Motown via Pandora and got busy creating in the art room! We used a small amount of glue from a gluestick to adhere the cut leaf collage to a piece of lamination paper. I laminated their creations the same day to ensure they remained flat and didn't get crispy and dry. I photographed them on a light table to show off the gorgeous colors. I emphasized overlapping, color, and shape to create successful representations of animals and creatures. More pictures soon!
What other methods should I try for preserving leaf and nature art? What are some of your favorite autumn projects and activities? Send me a message on the lower right side of this page or leave a Google+ comment below--I'd love to hear from you!
