Collage Leaves

I have a giant roll of corrugated cardboard that I have used for several projects. I also love collage and mixed media so when I saw this project  on April Cole’s Studio blog, I knew my students would love to try it.

Of course, they were allowed creative freedom.

I did show them how to roll up a bit of newspaper to make the stem of the leaf.

We talked about shape and color and adding power words to their art if they wanted to. They told me it would have been easier to have the power words pre0cut to save them time looking through magazines.
