Magic Marker Leaf Prints

Being creative is perhaps the most calming thing to my personality.  I had such a grumpy day the other day.  It was a day of  grown up temper tantrums (mine) that left me feeling deflated.   Out came the markers, in came some leaves.  A little creative brainstorming and my littles and I were absorbed in making these sweet and easy leaf prints with washable markers.

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!
