a work of art

I had been looking for some art work to hang on an empty wall but I was having one problem…I couldnt find anything in all the colors I wanted. So I decided to do my own. I’m not much of an artist so but I can spray paint like no other. I grabbed a can and got busy!


  • canvas
  • paint, your choice of color
  • paintbrush
  • temporary spray adhesive
  • leaf
  • silver spray paint


Paint the entire canvas the color you want your leaf image.

Spray one side of the leaf with spray adhesive and place on canvas, adhesive side down. Lightly press the leaf onto canvas making sure the leaf is smooth and all the edges are securely down.

Then spray paint the entire canvas with silver spray paint.

Once the canvas is dry, carefully remove the leaf  and it’s a masterpiece!
