1. Paint your paper/card with watercolour, making sure the paper is fairly wet.
2. Press in your leaves or flowers (some things work better than others). The fern leaves in the picture print particularly well with the veins facing downwards.
3. Re-paint over the leaves/flowers to ensure all parts are ‘stuck down’ to the paper.
4. Leave it to dry thoroughly before removing the leaves/flowers to reveal the print!

A group of men huddled in one of the cylindrical shaped rooms, flinching every time a wave rocked the lighthouse.

What they heard was truly terrifying… Finish me off!
