These are the things that came about on wednesday and friday. Wednesday is early day for Nat and I always like to try to find little things for us to do. She handed me a couple of her books that morning and I found a craft on how to make a celestial mobile. Since we seem to collect things for later craft use, I already had a small branch for us to work with. I brought out the cardboard, cut them into shapes, took out the foil, glue stick and glitter and let her go to work. Once the moon and stars were complete, we punched the holes into the moon and stars and i tied them up with our twine.
During the down time of this project, Natalie began a painting, actually, a portrait of me. I was so very flattered and really loved seeing her creativity and artistry at work.
Here is Natalie with her 'masterpiece'!
I am always on the lookout for new things to try and create. Lately, I've been starting to get obsessed with beautiful wooden spoons. While at the store the other day I saw a few I really wanted to purchase but instead, bought a pack of wooden spoons that I could paint faces on and perhaps, even, make them into little dolls. Yes, spoon dolls. So this is what I came up with...
The face, painted with acrylics and a matte finish.
The doll, completed with felt and material dress (filled with material scraps) and finished off with a braided yarn scarf.
She's a bit quirky looking but I like it. We will see how future spoon dolls come about. Until then, Happy weekend...
