Catching up

I know I do not blog much any more. But, as it is a new year, I am trying to “catch up” and get back at it, because I really do enjoy it. To start catching up, here a couple pictures from this last Autumn that I never shared. The Kiddo wanted to be a … Continue reading

Painted Quotes

Painted Quotes

Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with quotations, song lyrics, and poetry. I have kept a “quotes journal” for as long as I can remember (and now have a Pinterest board of some of my favorites, too).

We did this for two reasons: 1) my little guy loves crayon and watercolor together and 2) I like to do the same technique a few times … Continue reading

Christmas cards!

I’m working on Christmas cards today… some will be fabric collages, some family photo (if we can get a photo), and some are going to be based around this watercolor I did a while ago: It is based off of a photo I took when I was in NYC several years ago for a fantastic … Continue reading

Then we are going to punch holes and hang them up as a garland for the living room doorway! of the grown person variety: A Christmas embroidery I am working on (it’s from this etsy designer)… I love how this tree … Continue reading

Wet on Wet Watercolor

Wet on Wet Watercolor

A classic Waldorf art activity to do with kids is wet-on-wet watercolor. G has done lots of watercolor before, but mainly on dry paper. This week we decided to get out the good paper and work wet. With wet on wet, the colors spread and flow and are more intense than on dry paper. It … Continue reading
