Bleeding Tissue Christmas Trees

Playing with bleeding tissue is a favorite art activity in our house, such an easy item to us for all ages!!!

For this project Holly drew a Christmas tree (and I drew one for Hudson) and she used little bits of bleeding tissue to color and decorate her tree. You place the bleeding tissue over your picture and then paint with water, let sit for a bit for richer colors and then remove the wet tissue. This leaves behind beautiful color and design... also a great lesson in color blending.

I appreciate using bleeding tissue with Hudson because it is super simple for him to use on his own. Aside from drawing the tree he placed all of the tissue and painted it himself.

Both of these turned out really pretty!
