(Goblin is 27 months)
Today Goblin and I made something really pretty which is quite amazing considering how full of snot we both are. We did also watch 4 hours of TV - so this kinda balances out my guilt.
Meanwhile I searched google images for a good silhouette of a tree. You can draw one free hand but I am lazy so I usually go for the path of least resistance. I think this collage idea would also work really well with a silhouette of a butterfly or fairy, and if you have more patience than me you could do something finer.
Once I'd painted the whole canvas (including the sides where some of the magazine had wrapped round) I peeled off the silhouette. Then I used a few cotton buds (Q tips) to remove some of the paint that had seeped under the thinner branches.
Now I wish I could claim I came up with this idea up on my own, but I didn't. I found a beautiful picture on Pinterest and traced it back to a guest post on the blog Tatertots and Jello.
