I'm sure I've mentioned that I love That Artist Woman. She has fabulous crafts that are made in such a way that young kids can make them & look amazing. When I saw her Steller's Jay portrait I knew it was something we would try.
Well, we did try them & they are one of my favorite things the kids have made.
|We subscribe to a couple nature magazines, so we cut pages from them & glued the pieces to cardboard. This was the base of their artwork.|
|Next, they painted right over the magazine pieces.|
|This artwork looks complicated, but even 5 year old Princess K could do it with a little guidance from me. I usually held the stencil for her while she dabbed on the paint.|
This was a multi-step process & took a while to complete. But, it was worth it! They are beautiful.
