Fall Leaves - 11/8/11

When we went up to our cabin to cut firewood a couple of weeks ago, I took a couple of big leaves off of he big maple tree in front of the cabin so we could try to make the leaf prints I had seen here. We couldn't resist doing leaf rubs first before we got the leaves all full of paint. They turned out really neat. I cut them out so they could glue them on black paper so they would really stand out. After that, we did the leaf prints but we used fall colors. I think they turned out pretty cool. So did the leaves that we used to paint with! Since we used acrylic paints, they dried on the leaves without flaking off and almost plasticized them.

 Here are a couple of the other things we did today:
