I love how holidays motivate me to do creative things.
Here is a little peek at a sweet Valentine my girls and I made using materials we had on hand.
The girls used watered down magenta paint and foam brushes to cover the canvases. On the painting on the right we used a towel to take off some of the paint creating an interesting texture. The one on the left features some happy accidents, where fingerprints left some artistic marks on the background. A detail that I just love!
Then using the magenta paint I covered the girls hands and together they created a heart shape by overlapping their handprints. I also outlined the handprints in a heart as well.
The last step was gluing on the iridescent red and white hued buttons creating the letter “I” and the word “You”.
It was a fun and easy project that cost us zero $!
Also on the theme of buttons I am so excited to introduce a new line of vintage fabric creations. This spring I will be listing in my Etsy shop new Cover Button Earring, Ring, and Pendant Sets. Most are made using vintage fabric.
I hope your New Year and the upcoming holidays inspire your creativity.
