Hi all. Happy day after lovers day. :)
Here is our novice ideas of mixed media art. :) Enjoy
Each child was given piece a of perforated cardboard.
I just peeled off the top part of the cardboard for this look.
I had them paint the base colour white.
Autty is using a tooth brush here. :)
This part is pretty important I think!
Use a blow dryer to dry the different layers of paint it really helped keep us moving.
Then they used water colours over the base colour.
One thing the kids really liked is holding up there cardboard and letting the water colours run down or across the cardboard to give texture to their pieces.
Acrylic white paint
Lots of brushes (tooth brush, foam brushes, etc)
Alphabet stamps and black stamp pad
Pieces of paper (scrap book paper, newspaper, etc)

"If anyone lacks wisdom let him ask of God who gives liberally to all who ask for it."
Truth is I am not a Mixed Media artist myself (shocked are you?) ;)...but I love art and these days have a special infinity for Mixed Media art especially.
The electricity went out for about 15 minutes while we were working on this.
Ode to my life in Turkey. It keeps life popping.
The kids and I tried our hand with what we had: Cardboard! (of course)
Thanks for peeking in at our humble pieces. :)
In our west corner of Turkey using what we have to create,
