Se7en’s Fantastic Flower Fun…

March 6th, 2011 · 19 Comments

I am living and loving Alisa Burke’s SketchBook Delight Course but the only way to do it with a number of kidlets is to let them play with your pens and paints alongside you as you go!!! Today my kids made bunches of flowers using waterproof pens and watercolor paints…


While I was filling in some pages with pen and ink they drew a bunch of flowers…



Then they added watercolors… indeed they painted for hours, which was great because it was just too hot to step out doors!!!


A couple of snips…


And tape your flowers to a craft stick…


And you are done…


Pop them in a vase and your clear surface becomes a flowery display!!!


Easy peasy!!! Have Fun.
