Leaf Mandala Printing with Watercolor Paints

I believe in making art out of what’s available, using what you have.  In Ohio right now we have an abundance of leaves.  It’s green everywhere.  Although this lushness won’t last forever while it’s here it’s pretty awesome and using the greenery to make more beautiful art just seems natural.  All you need for these leaf mandala prints is some pretty little leaves and some watercolor paints!
