We had some time for art today (the weather has been cancelling everything, which truth be told is kind of nice) and I recalled a watercolor resist project I had seen on some blog somewhere. You know how that is, you just can't remember where you saw something youwant to do, you just know you saw it. Well since we had some time I just moved ahead with the project rather than spending time trying to find the precise directions (which I did eventually find and are linked at the bottom of this post)
I had them lightly tape down the top of the paper so it wouldn't wiggle around on them. Painters tape would have been ideal but ours is in the shed and fifty feet of snow, ice and sleet stands between me and it. I decided to wing it with Scotch tape.
The light is really dreadful for picture taking, it is so drab outside. I played with the aperture but even the camera is fed up.
Since we are now in February I thought it was time to take down January's art projects and keepsakes which tend to end up taped up all over the house but of course I had to take some pictures first. You've already seen a lot of them so prepare for a repeat.
and those owls with their weekly schedules taped up. They cross off as they go.
I hope everyone has a warm and cozy evening.
This art project was inspired by the Snowflake Resist on Art Projects for Kids. Next time we will do it with the four colors.
