Off and on for the past couple of weeks I have been working on two, what I could call, mini-projects. These were projects that weren't incredibly difficult by any means, but I just took my time on and enjoyed them as I was doing them (little by little due to a toddler and pregnancy exhaustion/sickness :)
First up is this little coloring mounted on a piece of wood board (small canvases are hard to come by here, or I would have probably used that, but I actually think it worked out pretty well!):
I printed out this flower coloring page (that I first heard about from this blog). I then just enjoyed the mess out of using my fancy Prismacolor colored pencils to fill it all in....so. much. fun. for an old art minor (ha). I'm such a kid...I love coloring :p
After I was satisfied with my coloring, I cut out the drawing and modge-podged it to the wood board. One final coat of MP and I let it dry. Now she sits on the kitchen table just waiting for her final location to be decided (hmmm...where am I going to put it!?).
I thoroughly enjoyed this simple little project!
Next up, Elise's BIG SIS onesie :) This was a fun quick project also.
For this I found a font I liked on picmonkey, typed out BIG SIS in a size I thought would work, and then printed that bad boy out. I stuck the print out under the onesie and then, carefully, with Sharpie traced the letters. Super simple, but effective. Finally, I added some little dots just for fun :) Of course, I knew when I did this that Sharpie isn't ideal (at all) for fabric, but I knew this would be a one time wear (the onesie is too small and it was mainly just to be used for 'announcing'). Fabric markers would be a much better choice.
But I was pretty pleased with how it turned out.
I definitely miss being able to do bigger, more involved projects, but ya know, these mini projects satiate my desire to create...so that works too.
Now go get your CREATE on! :)
