Color Blocked Leaves

This post was originally created for Darice.  Fall is such a beautiful time of year.  I love all of the colors of the leaves and how each tree can be so many shades of red, orange, or yellow.  This inspired me to create some simple yet elegant color blocked painted leaves for table decorations this fall.  With Halloween and Thanksgiving coming up, there are so many opportunities to use these pretty gold color blocked leaves to make your table feel festive.  The best part about this project is…it hardly takes anytime at all.

Step 1.  To begin your color block painted leaves projects, take a piece of Washi tape and place it on the leaf at a diagonal. Make sure to smooth the Washi tape down a couple of times with your hands.  This is to prevent the Washi tape from lifting off while you are applying the gold gilding.

Step 2.  Apply the gold gilding on with a paint brush.  Make sure you have proper ventilation when you are using the gold gilding.  The fumes are pretty strong.  When I used this, I was outside.  You will also find that the gilding dries pretty fast too.

Step 3.  Remove the Washi tape and you are finished with your gold painted leaves!

Hi Everyone!  Today, I’m sharing with you my first FREE Coloring Page.  I have been wanting to create these for so long and finally got the chance to get one done and I’m so excited to be able to share it  with all of you.  In the spirit of fall, the coloring page has everything that  comes to mind of when you think of fall.  I hope you and your family enjoy coloring this as much as I did.  I truly do find this to be a relaxing and fun outlet.  You kind of forget how relaxing coloring can be when you haven’t just sat down and colored for so long.  So, sit back, have a nice cup of coffee or tea and enjoy this fun coloring page by yourself or  spend some quiet quality time with your kids as they do some coloring as well.
