Creating the Background:

First paint shades of blues and purples on horizontally place paper then add white to create beautiful tints to the painting.

    Just did this yesterday with my kinders… the painting part in the morning, and the trees in the afternoon. They loved it and they all look great! Thank you!

    I like the way paper was used to create the snow as popular renditions are always the intricate designs. When one sees snow on trees, it more closely resembles your paper design. Lovely!
