Painting Dolls on school holidays
The kids and I created what looked like a bloody crime scene painting dolls.
I have been so inspired lately playing in so many mediums and creating so many things I can’t stop! I have been designing patterns, participating in #Inktober and #illo52weeks while finishing a picture book off ( almost done).
My children are on school holidays and we had a craft day today. I spilled out an assortment of art and craft supplies and let them loose to do whatever inspired them. Mr 9 had a calico doll to decorate and Miss 13 and Mr 11 had cardboard book boxes. I joined in with a calico doll and had a great time. At first I thought I had killed the thing – it looked like a crime scene! But then, to my surprise, it came together somehow.
Mr 11 made a decorated sling shot contraption out of the cardboard book box (go figure) which I eventually sent outside for testing – it worked too effectively! And Miss 13 is still working on perfection. My youngest is a little sensitive with art but enjoyed the play for a while, then hit the TV room.
