It can take a while to find all the things you might want to use for your work. So spend time walking round your garden or park deciding what might work well in the finished piece.

Once you've chosen your items you can break the twigs so they are smaller. Stack them in piles and move them around until you have what you want.

You can use as many materials or as few as you like. You can keep it really simple and just use leaves like the example below, where leaves have been gathered into a simple abstract shape on the grass.

Also look out for land art created by other things in your garden....
