Bark Tribal Masks

Recently, we played around with painting on texture and painted on bark from our wood pile.  We enjoyed painting the bark. Our finished bark had a very tribal look to it. It was cool and they reminded me of tribal masks. Since that day, I have wanted to try to make tribal masks using bark and paint. It took a few weeks to get to, but we finally had an opportunity and a couple of good pieces of bark to work with.

Nature and all of its different textures make a great paint canvas. Painting bark is a wonderful way to have some process art fun.

I love finding canvases in unusual places. My daughter and I will paint on just about anything, so when my husband brought in a big box of bark to use as kindling for a fire this weekend, we jumped all over it. Painting on nature is a favorite of ours because you can find such a variety of textures. We have painted on flowersWe have painted on rocks. We have painted on leaves, acorns, pine cones and sticks, but painting bark was a first for us.Painting bark process art. Painting on nature and texture. Kid's arts

A question was posed to me the other day by a fellow blogger. She asked me “What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish that you cook?” My reply was, it was actually a dessert that was my favorite thing to make. This inspired me to share this recipe with you. With the holidays coming, this is a great treat to bring to holiday parties & get togethers. They are a never fail hit. Every holiday, for more years than I can remember my family has put in a special request for me to make this super easy, ridiculously delicious & crazy addicting dessert.

Here is what you will need.

Ingredients

1 sleeve of saltine crackers

1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips

1 cup of margarine (2 sticks)

1 cup of sugar

1 cup of crushed walnuts

(For white chocolate bark replace chocolate chips with white chocolate chip & walnuts with almonds slivers.)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375

In a saucepan melt the margarine on low heat. Do not let it bubble.

051

While margarine is melting, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil & lay out the saltines side by side so that the edges are touching

054

When margarine is fully melted, slowly pour in sugar & stir until sugar dissolves.

055

Quickly pour the mixture evenly over saltines & spread with rubber spatula.

059

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Times will vary depending on your oven, so watch to make sure they don’t burn.

Take out of the oven & pour the chocolate chips over the top. When the chips turn shiny, spread evenly with a rubber spatula.

068

Sprinkle nuts over the top & let cool.

069

After the chocolate hardens, break up into bite sized pieces.

These seriously are an amazing dessert. I make tins of these during the holidays & give them as gifts. Enjoy!
