Wrapped Yarn Resist Birch Tree Paintings

A while back my daughter and I had fun experimenting with yarn and canvas to create a few interesting pieces of abstract resist art. I stumbled across those pieces the other day and remembered how much fun they were to make. Looking at them, gave me idea. I love birch trees and thought that this technique might work well for making birch tree landscape paintings. With a little help from my little girl, we played around with this method. We love the results and are excited about how simple and pretty these are. Wrapped yarn resist birch tree paintings for every season. Kids arts and crafts projects. Inspired by artist Gustav Klimt

Crayon Resist Hearts

Resist art is wonderful for artists of all ages. From toddlers to adults, it is simple and fun to do. We have used tape, oil, White-out and cardboard to make resist art in the past, but crayon resist I think may be my favorite to do.

Tape Resist & Silhouette Lighthouse

Tape resist & silhouette sunset lighthouse canvas painting - arts & crafts projects for kids

We love canvas art projects in our house. We have so many canvas paintings that I could probably cover every inch of our home with them. There are some that we love and display and some are just for fun. The great thing about canvas art is that you can always reuse the canvas if you want to and we do. We love tape resist projects as well and we especially love working with silhouettes.

Oil Resist Watercolors

I stumbled across an old post that I did a couple of years ago. It was a project that I was particularly fond of, but had forgotten about. I wanted to reintroduce the technique to my daughter now that she was older and it was a great opportunity to update the old grainy photos.

Paint Roller Tape Resist Art

Paint Roller Tape Resist Art - The paint on paint tape resist creates a beautiful marbled look for your letters.

Our upcoming move has become a great source of inspiration in our crafts lately. With all of the time that we have been spending packing & fixing up our house to put it on the market, it is no wonder. We painted our finished cellar last week. My daughter wanted to help my husband roll the paint on the walls, but being the paranoid mom that I am, I did not want her downstairs breathing in the paint fumes. It did give me an idea though. I thought it might be fun for her to use a smaller detail roller to make a pretty piece of art.

White-Out Resist Painting

White Out Resist Painting

 

Yesterday we found ourselves in a little bit of a dilemma. We did not have any childcare for our daughter. I was just returning from being out for a full week after my gall bladder surgery & my husband could not take the day off either. We were not sure what we were going to do. My brother-in-law volunteered to take her, but would not be able to get her until the afternoon, so I asked my work if I could bring my daughter to work for a few hours in the morning. They said “No problem”, so Mai came to work with me.

Pastel & Watercolor Winter Scenes

We are expecting our first snowfall tomorrow. There are very few things as beautiful to me than the first snowfall of the year. Just the thought of snow, made me giddy and inspired this fun and pretty art project for the kiddos. We live in the woods, so I just wanted something that looked like our backyard after a snow storm.

  This is an easy painting project that will be fun for kids to adults. I think they will love how the pastel resist and the watercolors work together to make these simple winter scenes.
