The need it list
· card stock for waterpainting
· water pot
There is not really any ‘tutorial’ for this one – maybe more like a creative idea? I have recently fallen in love with waterpainting – I’m loving the different techniques and the colourways you can produce, but the nicest thing by far? Because I have been doing this with bea she has also started to really enjoy it and feels very grown up!
I have wanted to create a family piece of art for a while. To be perfectly honest with you I wouldn’t put Mr P into the creative box. He’s more in the practical, thinking kinda box. And that’s cool, probably why we work, right?
But for the #monthofmake he was forced to sit with the kids, pick up a brush (check out his ‘technique’) and get his craft on!
I liked the idea of a blossom tree – please do not judge by tree trunk, or overanalyse the species…
So – are you inspired? Thinking maybe of creating your own avec fam piece of art?
We’d love to see if you made this – just use the hashtag #monthofmake and tag us on Instagram (@freckandfire) so we can marvel at your makes!
So looking to our #monthofmake number 8. Bea is OBSESSED with all things pretty and pink – so we’re going with some lovely decoupage with some of prized liberty print fabric ends!
