This month’s Outdoor Hour Challenge theme is
We studied the Karee tree just outside my bedroom window. I sketched it one afternoon.
This week we examined the leaves and bark of the same tree.
Miss.L10 took paper and made some bark rubbings and picked some leaves to bring inside.
We used the bark rubbing as part of the background for the nature journal page.
I suggested that we try to make “negative” leaf rubbings – place the leaf on top of the page and rub over the edge of the leaf creating an outline of the leaf. I filled my page with these shapes. the little lines created a lovely texture.
A few short, descriptive notes and my journal page was complete.
MissL.10 enjoyed a similar approach.
