You just need a chopping board to lean on and a rolling pin or hammer. Put an old tea-towel on the board , then sandwich some flowers and/or leaves between a couple of sheets of paper. Cover with a piece of kitchen roĺl and give it a good hammering.

It's a clean jam jar, cover in Pva and glitter, add a silhouette made from black paper, inside is a colour change LED tea light which are around £2 for a box of 6.
Shaving cream marbling
  • First, spray a can of economy shaving cream into a shallow tray and spread it out. Squeeze yellow and red paint over the top and mix it in using a paintbrush
  • Then lay a piece of paper onto the top of the foam and carefully lift it off again.

  • Use a scrap piece of card to scrape off the excess shaving cream and let the paper dry

  • Once dry, cut out leaf shapes and use for collage or display

Shape Artwork
A fantastic idea for some very effective artwork.
Use masking tape to lay out your patterns on canvas.
Colour each block a different colour.
While paint is still wet - remove the masking tape.
You could also do this with glitter.
Anyone would be proud to have this on their wall.

Use a couple of different clear plastic lids to draw around to create the shapes. Then, using the same black Sharpie pen colour some of the shapes in.
