an art day with lil' n...

My little artist, Lil' N and I had a great painting day.
I got her all set up at the table and before I could even get my projects out, she had already finished her first painting:


She took a little break to get some fresh water and watched me collage a painted paper towel onto a piece of watercolor paper:

As I left this to dry, I used watercolor paint to finish up another ink drawn Forest Faerie:

I glanced over at Lil' N and saw her drawing a face:

I was so impressed that she was creating such an awesome face. She is only 6 years old and she was drawing what she saw me doing.
Notice the white sparkle in the pupils of her eyes?

As I was painting my Forest Faerie's face,
Lil' N was doing the same on one of her drawings.

At the end of the day we both had creations we could be proud of,
and even better, a fun day to remember painting with each other.



Watching Lil' N create inspires me and I think I inspire her too.
I am going to have to figure out how to make a book out of her artwork.

What fun have you had lately?

Hope you have a wonderful week full of creativity!

it's ppf, paint party friday...

Happy PPF!
Friday is Paint Party Friday hosted by the wonderful Eva and Kristin.

I have been so uncreative for the past few weeks.
Even trying to do projects I love to do (or know how to do, lol) seemed to turn into messes.
For me, the best thing I can do when I am stuck is to just play around with paint and different ways to add colors together.

I started trying some new color techniques for totes and purses.
The first was wetting a plain canvas tote with water and then spraying different colors on it. After that I doodled all over the tote:

 

  Next I tried this on an already painted purse.
It's still a little wet and needs ironing:
 And I'm still working on the mixed media painting that has been hanging on my wall where I clean my brushes off on:

That's it for me so far. I still have at least six WIPs to keep me busy for the next week.

Have a GREAT PPF week!
