Mixed Media Fallen Leaves

Fall is coming, my friends. Soon the air will get cooler and our landscapes will be filled with warm fall colors. I can hardly wait. I love the beauty of the changing leaves. They are even beautiful as they fall to the ground. My daughter and I made these lovely mixed media fallen leaves over the weekend to celebrate our love for the fall. I have to admit that, once again, my daughter’s project came out better than mine. So, here is my talented 6-year-old showing you how it is done.

CD Printed Fall Tree

We did a little bit of cleaning last week and stumbled across a ton of old scratched DVDs & CDs that do not play anymore. Since I hate throwing anything away, I was determined to make use of them. CDs are wonderful for a variety of crafts, but my favorite use for them is for making simple printmaking projects. These CD printed fall trees are quick, easy and perfect for the fall.

Shape Castle Silhouettes With Watercolors

It is Harry Potter mania in my house. My daughter and I just finished book one, The Sorcerer’s Stone and are now moving on to The Chamber of Secrets.  She is in love with all things Harry Potter and so am I.  This past week the focus has been on Hogwarts Castle. I love castles and with all of the Harry Potter talk in the house I felt inspired to paint a little bit of Hogwarts. This kicked off our castle projects. We have been practicing drawing and painting castles and made these fun castle silhouettes with watercolors and construction paper.
