Contour Line/Tissue Paper Still Life

In this lesson students drew the contour lines of a still life and then created a colorful background using tissue paper and a spray bottle of water.  In the lessons prior to this we had drawn a contour line drawing upside down as well as practiced blind contour drawings of our hands, so students were very familiar with this process of drawing without shading. 
After the drawing was complete students outlined their contour lines with black sharpie.  Then they cut out bright colored pieces of tissue paper and laid them out across their drawing.  They very gently sprayed water across the composition and pressed lightly on the tissue paper in order for it to leave a colored print.
I think students really enjoyed this process of art making, especially the tissue paper part :)

Here's a link to the original post.
