On Saturday, I was honored to throw an ArT PaRtY for my favorite girl in the world!
My only daughter turned 8 this weekend and decided that an Art Party was the way to go with 10 of her best little friends. The girls did an amazing job at being creative for the art portion of our party.
Mixed Media Project
You will need:
done this on cardboard before
too with great results... you will
have to deal with some warping
as it dries, but what is a little
pressing when cereal boxes are free!)
-white glue mixed with water
-hot glue (if needed)
We started by selecting tissue papers and tearing them into small pieces. Then we used the paint brushes to paint on a layer of watered down paint on the canvas. Next add a piece of tissue paper to the gluey area. Wrinkles are encouraged! we want to make a texture with our paper. Add more glue to the top of the tissue paper, sealing all the edges. Continue adding paper until the entire canvas, and preferably the wrapped sides, are covered in color and texture.
Allow the canvas to dry completely. Looking lovely already!
Finally we did some collage work on the canvas as well. We added papers, fabric, buttons, washers, tiny mirrors, etc. The possibilities are endless for the collage
Melted Crayon Resists
During our drying time for the mixed media project we worked on some fun watercolor experiments.
