Foliage Collage and Color Tissue Paper, Henri Matisse

Insired by 'Tree of Life' Stained Glass by Henri Matisse

Using full sheet of semi transparent sandwich paper, glueing leaves and color tissue paper folding in the middle and adding stick for hanging.
Same as we did "Holiday Light, Inspired by Chihuly" artproject , here wool and color tissue paper are glued in side , pressed on a bowl to form a candle holder for the holiday.


This is how it lookes when the glue is still wet before forming shape.
I image that using transparent paper would be even more exciting .


  1. I am very much enjoying your blog! For many years I taught in the field of special education, and have always found art to be a wonderful way for people with disabilities to communicate and to achieve of a level playing field! I will be following you with much pleasure, and would love you to visit me at Dream Painters :)

  2. I would like to ask, with your candle holder, what paper have you used as your base?

  3. Hi Gilat

    I love the Matisse inspired windows!

  4. I love these! They would be so pretty in a classroom!
