gallstones, I'd love it if you did a tutorial. This sounds like a fun process.

Have a lovely day,

Here are my two attempts. I was pleased with the mutant bunny. I tried to see something else in the design, but he was very persistant  Grin

On this one it took me days to see anything but blood veins. Finally I saw this gnarly monster chasing this poor woman.


This was a lot of fun. The guache worked well, but I'm thinking of trying it with acrylics to see if I can get more vibrant colors.

Have a lovely day,

Hi there,

Sounds like you have everything you need to make a collage or some ATCs. If you look in the 'Paper crafts' section and the 'More art less craft' section, you'll find bunches of ideas.

Happy crafting,
Elf

That is too cute, Krista. I love the caption Smiley

I don't have any regular water colors. Do y'all think this can be done with guache?

Have a lovely day,
Elf

I don't know if you have time to take them for walks outside, but if you do, you could give them each a small bag. Let them get grass, leaves, dirt, small stones, feathers if they find them. Then they can create a picture of your walk. Using some sort of card board (torn up cereal box? something like that) they could finger paint the background then glue on their finds.

You could also give them each a sheet of address lable paper, like you use in a printer, and let them make their own stickers.

I used to home school my kids, a very long time ago. I'll try to remember some of the other stuff we did.

Have a lovely day,
Elf

Welcome to crafster!

When my daughter started sewing she used some old curtains and clothes to make pillows. That's how she learned to sew a straight line. She re-uses all my old clothes and her old clothes and makes shirts and those little skirts that you wear over your pants.

Yard sales and thrift stores are cheap places to get curtains and clothes that you can salvage the clothe from to use while you are learning. Good luck!

Have a lovely day,
Elf

I love these stories! I do crazy quilting and crochet and my cat is always chasing the yarn , or the thread or attacking the needles. My oldest cat (George or fat cat) loves to eat plastic and lay on paper. My daughter draws alot and he is always laying on her paper when he thinks she has drawn enough and should pet him.

The newset cat (Seshey) likes to leave little things in my shoes. Usually the pull thing off a milk carton cap, but anything small and hard will do.

I have a craft room now, so I don't know how Seshey would react to my crafts, I don't let them in.

Dooney, my grandson (pictured in my avatar) was born the same day. He is the light of my life  Grin
