Paper plates for paint colors

1. Tape of flower pots in design you want, stripes, checks, zigzags
2. Squirt one color at a time for kids to use on paper plates, put on an old t-shirt to protect clothing and cover the table or surface with a plastic drop cloth or table cloth
3. Let kids have fun and paint the un-taped parts, step back and let them have fun
4. Let dry for couple of hours, a blow dryer will speed up drying time
5. Remove tape and then tape the already painted parts
6. give pots back to kids and finish painting
7. Let dry and remove all tape.

8. now it is time to make it personal with hand prints and flowers (made with thumbprints!)

Grana’s favorite summertime drink is a “Mint Mojito” so we planted with mint!

Show Me Some Creative Summer Time Fun!

It all starts with “I want to make something (it’s 9pm) what can I do, I am bored!”

That is what happened on a Thursday evening with my 13 year old Rebecca. As we searched around we located a blank canvas (bought on sale at Hobby Lobby) and then we pulled out our stash of scrapbook paper (also from Hobby Lobby). Gotta love that store (and their sales!) and decided with the half jar of Modge Podge we could create a fun canvas for her new room she is decorating! The square canvas was the exact size of the square scrapbook paper that looked as though it was hand painted in orange and dry brushed with pink.

Rebecca decided to create flowers by tearing shapes, round and oval and layering different patterns of paper to create a bohemian flower pattern. She also decided to copy one of her music sheets from Piano titled “Believe”. The contrast of the black and white music against the orange was beautiful.

Step 1. Rebecca gathers all her materials!

She painted the canvas with Modge Podge and then laid on the orange paper and smoothed out any air bubbles. Next she painted the area for the sheet music (laying it on an angle) smoothed out the air bubbles and painted the entire top with Modge Podge.

Flowers are next.

Tip: She drew her shapes on the back of the paper with a pencil and then tore them out using the pencil marks as a guideline.

2. Flower layers, with torn edges

Tip: After deciding on paper, background, shapes, color story or theme, layout the design before gluing down.

3. Laying out the design

4. Modge Podge the background layers

5. Layers of 1st flower

6. Modge Podge layers of flower

7. Brush on top coat of Modge Podge

8. Additional torn flowers and leaves are Modge Podged on

After the canvas dried over night, she dry brushed black acrylic paint on the edges to give a finished look and signed her name! Now to decorating her room!
