Tisha's Mixed Media Art - Red with Butterflies

I'm not getting many opportunities to paint or craft myself at the moment, but the children are keeping the creativity area busy between them.

Tisha wanted to paint a picture for her Aunt's birthday. We saw Aunty Debora yesterday, and she said she's going to put the painting in her bedroom.

And here's how it's done.

Collect together:

  • 4x6 canvas board
  • paint pallet
  • red, blue, and white paint
  • paint brushes
  • chipboard butterflies, flowers and dragonflies
  • blue feather
  • blue mini craft straws
  • PVA glue
  • Black marker pen
Mix the blue and white paint to make a lighter blue
Mix some of the light blue with red to make a purple

Paint the canvas red.
Blend a little of the purple and blue paint onto parts of the board using the same brush as used for the red paint.
Paint the chipboard shapes

Using various items from the recycling bin, make marks in blue and purple paint on the red board.
Paint details onto the chipboard shapes.

Using the PVA glue, stick the straws, feather and painted shapes to the board.
Once the glue is dry outline the shapes with the black marker pen.

Add a signature, and be proud of your masterpiece.
