Have you ever tried painting with tissue paper? This bleeding tissue paper Earth is perfect for Earth Day.

Painting with bleeding tissue paper is a favorite of ours. I am not sure what is more fun, ripping up the pieces of tissue paper or using the spray bottle and watching the colors run. Either way, we love this process. We have made snowflakes for the winter and spooky trees for the fall. The spring is here and Earth Day is right around the corner. This bleeding tissue paper Earth seemed like the perfect craft.

What you will need:

A paper plate or watercolor paper

Bleeding tissue paper in blues and greens

Black Sharpie

Spray bottle

Water

Directions:

We usually use watercolor paper for all of our bleeding tissue paper projects, but we tried this one on a paper plate. To start, we laid out newspaper to work on. It can get messy. We used a black Sharpie to draw the outlines of the land. I recommend using a Sharpie because a regular magic marker might run.

My daughter drew two very small land masses. She explained to me that this was all the land that she was going to make because the earth is mostly water. I love that kid.

My daughter tore green and blue tissue paper into small pieces and then set it aside.

We prepped our paper plates by spraying them with water first.

We layered the green pieces of tissue paper inside of our outlines and then sprayed the tissue with the water. Next, we placed the blue pieces of tissue around the outside of the outlines and sprayed with more water. Be sure to spray the tissue well. If it is too dry, the color will not bleed and transfer.

Let the tissue paper dry and then pick off the pieces of tissue paper to reveal the color.
