Autumn Leaf Art with Chalk Pastels
- Draw your leaf
Start by drawing a leaf with the black Sharpie. See if you can fill the page with your leaf. And add the vein detail, and any other details you notice.
- Add color!
Use the chalk pastels to color in your leaf.
You may choose to use the vein sections to keep colors separate.
Or you can use your fingers to blend the pastels within your drawing.
- Remove extra dust
Be sure to blow the extra chalk dust off outside.
These chalk drawings provide the perfect Autumn decor to hang above the mantel.
So, how about letting Autumn inspire you? And make some colorful leaf art?
