Art Project: Winter Birch Trees

Margot's creation on the left, Violet's on the right.

When they unwrapped these paintings, framed in white, the grandparents were mightily impressed with the work of their precociously artistic grandchildren. Simple, impressive, and nice enough for gifts...how could I go wrong?


The materials are minimal, the process quick and painless, and the tutorial clear and simple.


January is a perfect time for winter artworks, non?

  6. How beautiful! Perfect grandparent gifts. Thanks for the link to the tutorial. We've done similar masked tree paintings before, but from a quick browse, it seems there are lots of great projects there.
