The fork has quickly become one of our favorite painting tools in our house. It adds such a great texture and a feeling of movement to a simple painting. These waterfall landscape paintings combine fork painting and sponge painting with gorgeous results. This is a beautiful art project for kids and adults.
My daughter and I love the famous artists. We also love playing around with different paint techniques. We combined the two for these Monet inspired landscape sponge paintings. The sponge created a wonderful backdrop for these impressionist style paintings. We chose Monet’s Water Lilies and Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies as our inspiration. These were quick, fun and easy, albeit a little bit messy, but we were both delighted at how they came out.
Printmaking and stamping projects are a favorite in our home. These processes are both fascinating and fun and they are great for the young and the old. Simply enjoy watching the shapes, lines and textures transfer onto paper or turn your prints and stamps into animals, flowers or a unique piece of art. Look around your house and outdoors for inspiration and printing materials. Experimenting and exploring different textures and surfaces is fun. Here are a few wonderful printing and stamping ideas to get you started.
I’m sure that I have mentioned it before, but I love gingerbread. It is one of my absolute favorite things about this time of year. I look forward to baking it, smelling it, eating it and my daughter and I have fun doing arts and crafts projects inspired by it. Here are some wonderful gingerbread inspired ideas to welcome in the holiday season.
Landscape projects are a favorite of ours. I just adore the soft and peaceful feel of them. There are so many pretty scenes that you can create and there is a variety of ways in which you can do it. We dabble with different ways to create landscapes all the time and we love seeing and trying other ideas that we see too. We love this collection of fun and creative landscape projects for kids and we think that the adults will have fun with these too. I know that I do. Whether you want to use paints, pastels, construction paper, nature, magazines or even food, we have a beautiful landscape art idea here for you.
I love landscape art. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, it doesn’t matter. I love them all. And we love using different techniques to make our pretty landscapes. We have made beautiful landscapes using forks, yarn, sponges and now cardboard. These paint scraped landscapes are quick and easy to make and we just adore how they came out.
My daughter and I had a lazy pajama day yesterday. We starting baking for our annual gingerbread project and we painted, crafted and drew. We made a lot of mess, but had a lot of fun.

We painted and crafted a ton, but we did get a bit carried away with making holly and mistletoe.
We made Christmas holly out of egg cartons first.
