Toe Painting Process Art

Toe painting is a fun and messy way to create a wonderful piece of process art.

When the nice weather hits, we head outdoors. Our days are spent playing in the yard, going on hikes and creating art. Warm weather means that we can start getting messy with the paint and chalk. We love to bring our craft roll (affiliate link) outside and lay it on the driveway and paint in the sun. It all started rather normally. We gathered our paints and brushes and went outside. One of the paint brushes started to roll down our driveway. I stopped it with my foot and grabbed it with my toes and then ding ding ding, we decided to get a little silly.

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.

Use sticks, stones, leaves and branches to paint a fun piece of process art. Painting with nature is perfect for a spring, summer or fall day.

We have had a crazy few weeks weather wise. Last week, our yard was covered in snow. This week, we are wearing shorts outside. The snow was fun, but the warm weather was welcome. We took a family hike, went to park and just sat outside and enjoyed the weather. My daughter had a friend over during one of these gorgeous days. My daughter wanted to make a big art project with a roll of butcher paper that we have. I suggested that we take it outdoors in case it got messy and boy did it. The kids had a fun-filled morning of painting with nature and with their bodies.

We just replaced our last set of toothbrushes.  I was about to throw them out when I thought that we could use them for something fun. My daughter and I love to paint without paint brushesWe have seen toothbrush painting before, but had never tried it. Today, seemed like as good a time as any. Since we’re on a rainbow kick right now, we decided to paint a rainbow with our toothbrushes.

This pretty watercolor technique is perfect for the spring or summer.

In our house, we love to work with watercolors. We like to make our own because we go through them so quickly. We have made solid watercolorswhich we love to use, but most of all, we just water down acrylic paints or mix food coloring with water. It just so happens that we did both of these things this past week and had quite a bit of both leftover to create these gorgeous watercolor dipped flowers. Watercolor dipped flower art.

This is a big week for us. Our little girl turns five this week.
