This painting combines paint and collage to create a fun, whimsical little gal!
Not sure where she's headed. She'll most likely be in my ETSY shop soon.

My painting apron is a Christmas cook's apron with little teddy bears on the trim. It's so ugly and it's covered in paint and I love it! :-)
I am very hard on my brushes so I don't buy the higher end ones because I know I'm going to trash them. Right now my favorite brush is one I've had since college and it's hammered, but I love it and will cry if I ever have to retire it.
I love my Prismas!! I like to see all my color options at once so I put them in this box and separated them by color.

The theme this month is "Secret Garden". The secret to my garden is that all my flowers are made of paper and paint--I kill any live plants. This painting is available on e-bay . All Nibblefest entries have a starting bid of $.99!

I brought lots of fun Easter colors to class and the kids painted the bodies whichever color they chose. Some chose to do the head a different color than the body, which turned out really cute!
For the bunny I found really fun extra fluffy pipe cleaners. You string two pipe cleaners (side by side) through the body and then fold the ears into shape and the feet into shape. (So one pipe cleaner is a foot and ear and the other pipe cleaner is the other foot and ear. Does that make sense?). We did glue tiny pom pom tails on too. The kids drew the face on with paint pens.
For the chick you fold a regular pipe cleaner in half and thread it through the body from the top and put a feather in the little top loop and pull it tight. Then you shape the bottom of the pipe cleaner into the two feet. The kids did the eyes with paint pens and the beak with a Sharpie.
