|Hand painted scarves for Mothers Day|
Anyway I hope all the Mum's out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. I certainly loved my raspberry crepes and cup of tea in bed, followed by lunch at a local cafe and then my parents and sister around for dinner. I even had time to lie on the couch and read my book for a while.... It was the first Mother's Day in 9 years I didn't run or walk the Mother's Day Classic and with all the rain I have to say I picked a good one to miss. Well done if you did it!
I love to spoil the Mum's as much as I can for Mother's Day (Mum's deserve it!) so this year we made the following (over a few weeks of classes):
- Hand painted Scarves
- Marbled Notebooks
- Portrait CD's
- Living Cards
We made the marbled notebooks as I had children begging to do Shaving Cream Marbling (you can read about this here from a previous post). As always it was lots of fun and the notebooks justified the whole experience.
The portrait CD's idea came from K-6 Art - thank you! I have mine opened out and sitting on the windowsill and I do love them.
The living cards idea came from Art Projects for Kids - thank you! This was ideal as I was only half way through my box of 100 CD cases from the portraits project the week before. I had also lashed out and bought a whole set of Posca Paint Pens which I had been eyeing up for some time (they have so many uses, especially in street art, check out this facebook page). The two living cards from my children are growing wonderfully on the windowsill and I have to say its a great novel idea for a card with a difference!
A belated Mother's Day to all the mothers.
