Painting The World with Our Imaginations

It's amazing how just switching from paper to leaves can make painting new again. Both my children loved this project and didn't want to stop painting. They kept gathering leaves, painting, gathering leaves and so on.

I'm always saving various containers for craft projects. I used baby food jars for the water and ice-cream mochi containers for the paint.

For fun we scattered some leaves on the ground. I can't help but think of Gene Wilder singing "Pure Imagination" when I look at these leaves.

This is a lovely project. I particularly love the idea of scattering them "guerrilla art" style.

So cool and unexpected! That first picture with the glorious blue leaf is wonderful. Excellent project - again!

What a neat idea to do with my granddaughter when we go away for Halloween. There will be leaves all over the ground out by our cabin at the state park. Thanks for sharing.
