Painted Gifts

December 16, 2010


Amazing to see what kind of magic can happen with a few tubes of acrylic paint and two creative kids. I love all of the gifts the kids have been making this holiday season. They made the paintings for Adam using this tape technique. Painted pots for teacher gifts. And who can resist a brightly painted pine cone?

Oooh. I love those paintings. I think I may have to borrow that idea for me and my girls!

Yes, do it with your girls! I think you will all be happy with the results. It was fun to see how my kids approached their canvases in very different ways and I love how they now make our entryway pop with color. My kids are also now begging to get their hands on more blank canvases. Noah especially liked how easy it was to paint on the canvas...not sure we've never done any paintings on canvas before, but I now know there will be plenty more in the future. Happy Painting!
