Ready to decorate for the fall season? Create this fun and easy fall leaf canvas with me!

You’ll need:

Tombow ABT PRO Alcohol-Based Markers, your choice of colors

Tombow MONO Twin Permanent Marker

8×10″ canvas, or your choice of size

Tombow MONO Sand Eraser (optional)

Step 1: Create leaf-shaped areas of color all over the canvas.

Use your choice of ABT-PRO Alcohol-Based Markers for this step. Try a traditional fall color palette with red, orange, yellow, green, and brown, or change things up with colors like teal and blush. You can make these shapes as large or small as you like. For my traditional canvas, I added the shapes and colors randomly, while for the other palette, I followed a pattern.

Step 2: Use the MONO Twin Marker to add more detailed leaf doodles on top of each colored area.

Try making different types of leaves; some oval, some pointed, some with veins, and any other variety you can think of.

Step 3: Add details and embellishments.

Once your basic doodles are drawn, add details like dots and highlights. I used a white gel pen in addition to the MONO Twin for this step.

The colors you choose, along with the size of your leaves, will have a big impact on the unique look of your finished project. Personally, I prefer the leaves to be larger so that the colors take up more of the white space of the canvas. To fill extra white space, you can add little detail lines around the leaves that suggest movement.

This project is a fun one because it requires very few supplies, takes less than an hour, and there’s no way to do it wrong! If you give it a try, I would love to see how your projects turn out.
