Anything Goes - Birch Trees

I completed this a while back and it was in created following this video by Shemi Dixon.
The piece uses layered book text pages in the background, random acrylic colours and then a masking technique with tape to create the trees.
I then used the idea to create a page using Autumn leaves and then teaching the technique with my class of 10 year olds.
Pleased with mine, and the kids' pieces of art.

This is an entry in:
  SCD - 254 - Using a text background.

Here's my Autumn leaf version.

And here's some by the kids.
