Moss Silhouette Tutorial
Moss is a beautiful, under used medium for art. What could be greener than "painting" with moss? Moss is cheap and plentiful and available almost everywhere in the Us. There are several different kinds of moss. For these projects we will be using what the craft industry calls "sheet moss". It is the flattest variety and easiest to use for making silhouettes. Gather some in the woods or buy it online or at craft stores.
I used old, weathered boards for the background. Basically, all you need is moss, paper, glue and optional music sheet and fiddleybits to embellish if you want.
Print out a silhouette from a Google image search of your choice.
Glue the moss to the paper using Elmers. Don't use hot glue, the paper cant handle it. After it is dry, cut out the image with scissors.
You will have to cut with sharp scissors as the moss is very *hairy* and tends to not make a clean image. Keep going over it until you have the look you want. Glue the image to the board.
Old music sheets look great with birds! I use a paper flower and a cotton bow to embellish.
This makes a great natural, woodland look wherever you need to put some green in your decor.
