This weekend was another snowy one. In fact, we didn’t even leave the house on Sunday. We needed something to do. We were going stir crazy. So I went searching through my craft supplies and found a few things that looked fun – namely some small square canvases, acrylic paints and washi tape.
This was so fun and easy I’m not even going to do a full tutorial, just show you the pictures (that were all taken with my phone because I forgot to charge my big camera – so excuse the quality) and explain a little what we did.
For the first canvas I let Abi choose a picture that she wanted taped out with the washi tape. She chose a heart. Then I just let her go to town and she loved it!
I had a little more of a plan for the second one. I had seen a pin on Pinterest (I found it a while ago, before I double checked links – this one happens to be a spam link so I can’t reference it. If anyone knows where to find it let me know!) and thought it looked like fun. Basically you just use the tip of a pine bough to “stamp” a snowflake. So I ran out side a picked a few pine boughs then painted the canvas blue.
Then I handed Abi the boughs and some white paint and let her go. It was a little hard for me to just let her do her thing for this one. I wanted to go for a nice simple look, but Abi wanted to go until the whole canvas was covered in white blotches
So after a break to let the paint dry we got a few pictures of the finished product.
All in all it made for one fun afternoon.
