Autumnal Art!

Following on from our volcanic collages, we planned an autumn collage using fallen leaves and twigs to reflect the browns, reds, oranges, yellows and greens that you see at this time of year. We used double-sided sticky tape as our fixative and created the trunk from bits of leaves and the branches from small twigs, all of which creates lots of different shades and textures.
