The autumn is here and the leaves are turning bright and colourful. I wonder if there is any other language in the world that has a word for the beautiful transformation of the leaves that in Finnish is called ‘ruska’?
Anyway, last days to do some prints with green leaves, using the green colour of the leaves. This time kids did this with their aunt and on canvas. Looks really good and we are about to frame them. But what if we’d do prints on t-shirts, does anyone know how to keep the prints intact through a wash?
An easier option is to use a brush to paint the leaves with canvas paints, and consequently press the leaves on canvas. This was easy enough to do even after a daycare day, and my son loved also to mix the colours. The idea is not very original but we had fun and I think these pillow cases look cool!
