How to create: (I don’t mind sharing at all!)
1.Use thick waterpaint paper. Paint it red / bright yellow / orange. Use a hairdryer, blow dry from the middle.
2. Paint one thick and very watery…wet!!!…stroke of paint at the top of the paper. Then turn the paper so that the paint runs down. Use lots of newspaper on your table, it can get very messy!
3. Now turn your paper the other way round and paint another colour at that end, let the paint run down again. Repeat these two steps until there are enough lines (trees) on your paper.
4. Wrinkle up a plastic bag, put it in wet paint the colour you want the leaves and press it at the top.
5. Use a white or black pen to put some finishing touches in. Let it dry…frame and sell!
