Who Who..loves owls? I do! I do! For me, it’s all about the eyes. There is something so hypnotic about them. This easy painting project focuses on their beautiful peepers and those adorable feathered faces. These painted owl faces are a quick and easy art project for the kiddos. My 7 year old loved making these.
It’s happening again. My favorite time of year is coming and with it all those vibrant fall colors. These paint blot fall trees highlight my favorite thing about fall, the trees. This is a bright and colorful project that is quick and easy, is great for all ages and only requires a few items.
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.
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.
The spring is here!! Hip hip hooray! One of our favorite warm weather activities is blowing bubbles. My little girl is crazy for bubbles. Bubbles are so beautiful and magical and just make you happy. These were enough reasons to make a bubble project for the spring. This pretty mixed media bubble project combines watercolors, wax paper and pastels.
We are back again with one of our favorite painting techniques, sugar painting. We cannot get enough of it. The beautiful glossy finish of the sugar and watercolors were perfect for making these stained glass art projects. This is a great idea for the holidays, but it is also fun to make all year round.
Gobble gobble gobble! Thanksgiving is a month away. If you are looking for a simple and fun Thanksgiving craft that you can do with the kids, here you go. This paint scraped turkey craft is as easy as it comes and only takes about 10 minutes to make.
We love trying different paint methods and techniques. We have tried many fun processes, but sugar painting is by far my favorite. I’m just so in love with this technique. It is fun to watch and the results are just gorgeous. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at our mandala sugar paintings.
I love the reaction that occurs when you combine salt and watercolors. Salt paintings are a fun process that your kids will love.
Try sprinkling salt on a freshly painted watercolor picture and see what happens. It is lovely. Another cool process is painting on the salt with watercolors. This is a messy process, but a fun one that will certainly delight your kids. A word of warning, this technique is more about the process and the fun than the final product. There are changes that occur to the paintings upon drying. We have included some notes and suggestions about the salt paintings at the bottom of the post.
