For those of you lovely folks who have asked or wondered, we are well. We are settling into our new routine. The kids adore their new little sister and we are taking things slow and easy.
It’s a very nice time of year to welcome a new babe into our family as we are naturally winding things down for the year. With Christmas holidays just days a way, things are coming to a natural close. And with that quieting of schoolwork comes a whole lot of crafting. This printmaking craft we did turned out beautiful, so I thought I would share it with you.
Sam has been busy making paper snowflakes (it’s his newest favourite Quiet Bin), so when we broke out the paint it was only a matter of time until this craft happened.
I taped off an area on our kitchen table with painters tape that was about the size of a piece of paper.
Then we added some paint. We used different shades of blue, but any colours at all would work. Sam used a paint brush to spread the paint all around the area inside the painters tape. Sometimes we do this finger painting style, but this time he opted for a paintbrush.
Side note: We used too much paint. Next time I would use a much thinner coat of paint so our prints were clearer.
We did the painting right on our kitchen table, because that is how we roll. But you could put down a plastic table cloth first if you prefer – or even a garbage bag would work.
Next, Sam laid down some of his tiny snowflakes over top of the paint. Aren’t they pretty?
And finally we pressed down a piece of paper over top of his creation and peeled it away to reveal beautiful snowflake prints.
I think they look so very pretty! They will look beautiful hung up as our first winter art project. I do just love a good winter art project.
Bring on the snow! (Wait … I don’t really mean that ….)
I hope you are having a wonderful week friends,
