Cutting the leaves out of paint chips.
The cat was not amused
cutting out the rough draft branches
Had to move to the floor!
I like how it looks, but I ran out of leaves!
I plan on painting the tree trunk on a canvas and using gluedots to hold the leaves on! I am excited about how it looks so far!

Cutting the leaves out of green paintchips
Kitty wasn’t amused that she was covered in paintchips
First branch laid out on the bed
Had to move to the floor to lay it out
Ran out of paintchips, but this is a good rough draft!
I plan on painting this on a canvas and using glue dots to hold the leaves on.

@brandybelle: I really like the leaves, but I am honestly not a huge fan of the trunk/branches.

@brandybelle: I love your leaves and the inspiration photo, gorgeous. I did a fingerprint tree and it turned out amazing. I had the tree custom painted on canvas and its now hanging above my fireplace in our new home that we move into tomorrow! If you want to see the fingerprint tree just look at my post in the boards under my name. It really did turn out amazing.

@brandybelle: Will it be a printed image or the paper cut outs?
I found this template that can be downloaded….it might be helfpul depending on what you are trying to accomplish–this is more for the thumbprint kind though.

@bmo88: It will definately be the paper cut outs, I put too much time into them to throw them out.
@mishagirls79: I will look it up! Originally Fiance and I wanted a thumbprint tree, but we didn’t think the older folks at our wedding would understand how to do it!
