I began by taking their photo in front of a "green screen" and asked them to pose as if they were looking at a landscape. I uploaded their photos into their Dropbox folder and each child was then able to access their photo from Dropbox and import it to their iPad. They used the Brushes app to import their photo and added a second layer to trace their silhouette in a shade of one color.
They then added a second layer where they drew an organic line to represent a landscape and colored it in with a lighter or tint of the their silhouette color. They repeated the organic line and change of color two to three more times to fill in the entire layer. The final step was to move their silhouette layer to the top of their landscape layer and viola!
