A couple of days ago, we had one of our regular library trips. As per usual, we spent a couple of hours looking through & selecting our books for the next couple of weeks and playing. My daughter found a lovely pop-up picture book about peacocks.
"bleeding tissue art"
I am a New Englander. I love the changes in seasons. I love winter, spring, summer & fall for very different reason. I know that we still have a lot of summer left & I am enjoying every bit of it, but I have to admit, I am looking forward to my favorite of all of the seasons. Fall is nearing & I cannot wait. I love the crisp autumn air, Halloween, apple picking, cider & the changing of the leaves. Fall trees are so beautiful & they offer great inspiration for arts & crafts. Here is a collection of wonderful fall tree projects that you can do with your kids.
All you need for these simple watercolor and Sharpie shamrocks is watercolors, a paint brush and a Sharpie.
We had ourselves quite a shamrock filled art day yesterday. Being the big bleeding tissue art fan that I am, I made some bleeding tissue paper painted shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day. My daughter began the project with me, but then chose a different direction. The end result is these easy and lovely watercolor and Sharpie shamrocks.
The thing that I love about printables is that there is no one way that you have to use them. My daughter teaches me that every time we do a project together. This week we had fun making hummingbirds. Our hummingbird template got a lot of use and we made several using different media.
If your kids are peacock lovers like we are, you will love this pretty and fun painting project.
Our family took a trip to the zoo yesterday. We saw a lot of amazing animals during our visit, but my favorite of them all was the peacocks. I love peacocks. They are so majestic and beautiful. Seeing these amazing creatures inspired our latest project. We have made peacocks in the past. Last year. we made them by painting with bleeding tissue paper. This time around we tried using the straw blowing method. Here’s how.
My daughter and I love to paint. We have been painting together since she was barely a year old.
