It was time for Mummy to do some art!
Inspired by a wonderful post by Harmony Art Mom - I had a go at the same sort of effect using our new block crayons.
These crayons smell wonderful (they are beeswax) and can be used in so many lovely ways.
First I did the background colour using the sides of the crayons, then doodled around with some spirals and flowers.
Little girl did one too.
Then, while I was cooking tea and seeing to little boys all at the same time I ruled lines on the back of the picture. Well, I tried to rule the lines, but got it all wrong and had to re-rule them!!
Then I cut the picture into little pieces.
NOTE: This is not the same as when our 5 year old cuts his artwork into little pieces! Those pieces normally end up on the floor/ in the bin / stuck to something - or being quietly chewed by the dog under the couch.
Because I was in a hurry (I usually am!) I didn't set the pieces out to make sure they looked good BEFORE I glued them. Setting them out is a good idea. I just figured it would look ok as long as I didn't have lots of the same colour together. :o)
