I love using eucalyptus as an accessory in my interior. The main reason is you can dry it and it will last forever. For instance adding this to a vase on your nightstand, lets you add a little green to your home without the costs. But I figured you could use eucalyptus also to make prints that totally fit today’s “Urban Green” trend. I made a 50×70 print and will walk you through the steps.
At first I thought I would spray paint the branch and then stamp it on the paper, but I realized that would’t work out. This is mainly because I used dried eucalyptus, which will break if you try to adjust the shape. While making art I love to use a lot of texture, so then I figured I’d paint the leaves and then stamp them on my paper. This creates the effect of texture.
As you can see there is a lot of texture there.
The steps I followed:
– take a leaf and paint it, I used acrylic paint
– stamp the leaf onto the paper. I copied the design of the eucalyptus branch itself but you can off course create your own design and make it bigger or smaller
– when finished with stamping the leafs I painted the branch in between the leafs.
And there you go! I feel the most fun part of these DIY’s is you can use all your creativity. Make it big, small, black or green, it’s up to you!
Have a great day! :)

Wauw, heel mooi! Ik ben nog op zoek naar mooie wanddecoratie voor boven mijn bed, dit zou echt perfect zijn.
Leuk om te horen Fleur! En heel makkelijk, afgezien van het drogen ben je in 10 minuutjes klaar. Succes! :)
