We couldn't have a holiday without doing some fun themed art projects with my daughter. She is nearly obsessed with painting now days and does it on a daily basis while my son naps. With Valentine's Day approaching us we had been working on a few fun projects and I wanted to share them with you all.
To start out the above picture is my favorite!
I first painted the canvas a solid pink and let it dry
Then my daughter went to town using her finger prints for leaves in the shape of a heart
Then I painted a tree trunk once she was all done
This picture was a lot of fun for my daughter to make because she used a circle sponge brush
for the first time and had a ball with it
I cut out a heart shape on my Silhouette die cut machine and pasted it to the paper using
temporary scrapbook adhesive
My daughter started with the teal, then did pink then red
The painting process :)
I then gave my daughter some heart cut outs and she used her fingers to paint some fun designs :)
This picture was using the print of her hands, one partially on top of the other
Then she went back and used finger prints around the heart
She used water colors on the heart cut out above
This was her own idea for a project she said which was all done by her fingers:)
Here is our completed Valentine's mantel with the two pieces added
Thanks for taking a look. I hope you have a chance to make some fun projects as well!
