Some recent face painting fun

Trolls has been a big hit recently with little girls in particular and so I've added a few of them to my face painting repertoire and they've been a huge hit. Shopkins too. I need to try to get some more pictures, but I'll add the few I have.

New Nursery Art

I'm excited to share something new that I've been working on. I've been turning my etsy store into a download only store and it's mostly filled with nursery art. Later on I might add art for older kids, but this is the direction life is taking me at the moment and I'm having fun doing it.

It's fun for me mainly because I don't get much opportunity to work with watercolors in my other work and I really like it, so most of these are watercolors. 

 

Let me know what you think and definitely let me know of any suggestions or ideas.

Painted Kids Furniture

Ok, now this is not something I do a whole lot of. I would love to be able to paint a ton of furniture because it's something I love doing, but I have very limited access to our garage and so I have to keep my projects to a minimum. 

In our house, the garage is dad's territory and while I do get a corner of it to store my mural painting supplies, I can't take it over for art stuff. It's a compromise, but since my husband fixes all our cars and does all the household repairs, I can't really complain :D. 

So considering all that, I have painted a number of pieces and every now and then done some big projects. Here's a picture of some kids bedroom furniture I painted last year. This was for 2 brothers with different interests that shared a bedroom. The mum wanted one side of the room to be spiderman and the other side pokemon. So I tried to blend the two in a way that still looked good. 

Here is a good article on furniture painting how to's. He explains how it's done much better than me. My specialty is painting pictures on stuff.

Cat Themed Art Party

This party was for a 9 year old cat lover and a very artsy family. It was tons of fun.

I had planned the party for 12+ 9-year old girls, but ended up with 18+ girls from 3-9 years old. So it was a bit of a challenge to keep them all happy.

sometimes when I'm leading an art party, we do the whole thing in steps and each child follows along and they all create the same thing, other times, like this, it's pretty much a free-for-all and everyone gets to do their painting just how they like it.

I drew a basic cat on each canvas and gave the girls pencils to decorate and finish out their picture the way they liked. Then they went to work painting them and I ran around giving guidance and advice as needed.

I love seeing kids imaginations come to life on their canvasses and seeing their personalities shine in the way they complete their painting.
