Beautiful Birch Trees

We created the background of our art by using watercolour paints and salt. The salt soaks up some of the wet paint leaving a crystal like pattern behind. Next, white paint was splattered on top to give the background a wintery feel. 
Mrs. Steuart's Starbucks Card collection came in handy!
Finally, we created our birch tree trunks. This was the fun part! We used old Starbucks cards from Mrs. Steuart. You simply dip the smaller portion of the card in black paint to make a trunk shape. Then you drag the card from each side towards the center of the tree. That's how you get the birch bark look! Don't they look beautiful?
