My daughter and I love to play with ink blots, or more accurately paint blots. We make them all the time. They are so simple and fun and I love the symmetry of the blots. The mirroring of the blots gave me an idea for a winter painting.
We are deep into the fall now and the cold weather is here. The leaves are falling and some of the trees are bare now. I love the fall trees, but I also love the haunting beauty that comes with a bare tree, especially against the night sky.

We wanted to paint some night skies, but thought that bleeding tissue paper might be perfect for a our haunting scene.
I enjoyed a beautiful fall weekend with the family. We went to the pumpkin patch one day, went on a hay ride and went to a wonderful evening theater production in the woods. It was a walk through production for the kids with multiple skits along the way. My daughter had a great time and laughed the whole way through.
I am sure that I have told you many times that many of our craft ideas come from my 4 year old daughter. We have been painting & crafting together for the majority of her life. There is not much that we won’t try to craft with. My daughter has a tough time throwing anything away because she wants to make a craft out of everything. I think it is amazing. I love her creativity.
Most of our crafts are inspired by random things that we encounter in our everyday life. Both crafts that we made yesterday were inspired by objects that I saw in my aunt’s home where we are staying during our house build. We are currently residing in her finished cellar. Yesterday, I was trying to clean up and organize some of the stuff that we brought with us. As I was trying to find a home for all of our things, I came across a fake poinsettia. It was soft & glittery and pretty and the perfect subject for a craft.
