Welcome to Day 15 of October's Month of Magic from Primary!
Fall foliage is the inspiration behind many a color palette, but do you ever wonder what it would be like if those beautifully-hued leaves could actually fall in your favorite Primary colors like grass, cobalt, or cherry? Today, inspired by our crafty friends at First Palette, we're sharing an easy tutorial for making rainbow leaf art, with just three materials — leaves, paper, and crayons. Here's how it's done:
Step 1: Collect leaves of all shapes and sizes from outside. The less crinkly, the better.
Step 2: Place a leaf on a flat surface (like a table or desk) with the bottom facing up. Cover with a piece of paper.
Step 3: Using a crayon, with its wrapping peeled off, gently rub the side of it over the leaf. You'll see the leaf start to take shape on the paper!
Step 4: Once your first leaf is colored completely, remove from under the paper and repeat with different leaves until your creation feels complete!
