Leaves are big in art prints right now and are simple enough to create yourself. Here we’ve created an oversized leaf print, inspired by the Monstera leaf.

You will need:

  • Canvases
  • Oversized leaves collected from the garden
  • Resene testpots in your choice of colours.  We used Resene Half Tea, Resene Madam M, Resene Red Hot and Resene Red Letter
  • Roller/sponge and tray
  • Blu tac

Step one. Paint the canvases in Resene Half Tea and leave to dry.

Step two. Place the leaves on the canvases and secure with blu tac.

Step three. Taking the Resene testpots, gently paint over the leaves, remembering not to overload the roller or sponge.

Step four. Remove the leaves and leave to dry.

Step five. Hang up your artwork or gift to a garden lover.

Top tip: Layer up the leaf images and Resene colours to add more colour and detail to your finished artwork.
