Fall leaves are made of lots of fun curvy shapes, so I had my art journal students trace them today to make a tissue paper collage of maple, white oak, elm and maple leaves.
1. Download my leaf line art file HERE, and print a page for each student. Pass out lots of rectangles of tissue paper that are large enough to cover the largest leaf, and have the students trace them with a thin black marker.
2. The leaves are cut out in rounded manner, and glued to the journal page with a glue stick. Light rubbing of glue on journal paper, followed by placement of tissue paper is best.
3. When the page is filled with leaves, the outline of each leaf is traced with a metallic marker. Leaf names may be added afterwards.
4. If any other space is left, more leaves may be drawn and traced with a marker and colored with colored pencil.
