Paint a leaf with colors of your choice.


Press the leaf onto the paper.


Gage it to see if you will have the right shape.


With more water manipulate the paint into the leaf shape on whatever parts did not transfer. You will get a softer more dreamy effect this way.



Add stems and little dots and specks of color like you normally find on leaves.

  2. Stunning results … can’t wait to give it a try. I live in a forest and there are so many leaf shapes to choose from!
