Both kids are happy and content. I'd be spoiling that if I got up and tried to do something. Ever been there? Best to just sit here, be inconspicuous, and put up a fun blog post.
Here's a little something that didn't get picked up for a "use paint on a project" call. Which is fine...means I can share it here. I think it's a pretty cool idea. Especially if you've got some watercolor pencils laying around collecting dust. I was inspired by these $1 Magic Paint Poster packs I got for my niece and nephew at Michael's. They have black and white line drawings with a paint palette on the same page. The kid wets a paintbrush, swipes it on the paint pallette to get some color, and colors away at the image. You can do the exact same thing with watercolor crayons/pencils and stamped images on watercolor paper.
I had the perfect stamp to use for my "palette" by Make An Impression. But absolutely any of their Frame-Up series will do. I used #17.
Thanks for stopping by--hope you are inspired. It's a really fun project to make to give to a friend who needs a little creative time. I have a hard time not using it myself!
