Watercolors on wood
More pre-Fair crafty ideas. We saw these cool wood coins on Fun in the Making, via The Crafty Crow. So I had Ross cut me a few wood rounds from our cherry tree after he did some limbing. Then I thought this might be a cool idea for a nature craft for one of the kids for Fair. So Hot Rod cut some "coins" from juniper branches on his own and decided to paint them.
He used non-toxic Prang watercolors and made a rainbow spiral, a volcano and Scooby Doo (for his little sister who is obsessed with Scooby Doo).
This one is my favorite because you KNOW I LOVE rainbows!
And the aforementioned little sister saw us painting and demanded to paint as well. Her brother found her a chunk of wood and she created this beautiful piece of art:
I had to get in on this too. (Because really, we all know the only reason my kids get to do so much arts & crafts is because I AM OBSESSED). Found me a chunk of wood and made a colorful statement.
Don't you just LOVE simple crafts that turn out beautifully?
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
