I needed to design some fabric for a project I will be showing you later next week, and it seemed like a perfect mommy and son art-tivity. We taped a piece of white muslin to a plastic table, grabbed a couple of sharpies (BTW: Under 5yrs + permanent markers typically demands being outside to avoid the "accidental" inspiration on your walls).
Then when our fabric was entirely covered in our creations, we watered down cheap-o craft paint and did a watercolor play over the design. The effect was gorgeous, lots of pretty mixing of color. There was seriously no way to screw it up, which made it PERFECT for little helping hands. When it was finished we hung it up to dry and Voila, ready to use fabric for lots of projects.
BTW: If you didnt see my post yesterday, right now I am on the hunt for some artsy/crafty/creative bloggin people that I can team up with, more information HERE. Have a wonderful Saturday!
