It was a school holiday on Monday, so I had the pleasure of painting with Tyler... Paint Party Live! Wheee!!!
We rolled out 100% recycled brown paper (they sell it at my local home improvement store in great big rolls). Then we went to town with acrylic paints and watercolor crayons! The end result? A gigantic 6ft. by 6ft. playful mess of goodness!!!
I thought that it would make terrific backgrounds, so with Tyler's blessing I cut it up. I took one of the pieces and attached it to a scrap piece of wood I had laying around.
In addition to the fun I had painting with T-man, I painted some quick watercolor poppies. On Tuesday, Tracey posted a pretty poppy post. (Say that ten times fast! Ha!) She mentioned a free online workshop offered by Studio Margot called The Poppy Spree. It sounded like fun so I thought I'd give it a try!
Ever since I saw this photo on Heather's blog, I've been itching to paint a small bouquet of flowers. This seemed like the perfect week to do it! I cut out the poppies I had painted for The Poppy Spree, attached them to the background I showed earlier in this post, then created a mixed media vase full of poppies.
