Spending hot afternoons in the middle of art projects is something that DOES NOT happen on school days. So doing them side by side with my 5 y.o. in this summer is so relaxing. It’s therapeutic! And we’ve been obsessed with crepe paper last week.
Bleeding Crepe Paper 1: Impressions
Place crepe paper cut outs on the drawing sheet in whatever shape and manner you want. Spray or transfer drops of water over it so the color transfers from the crepe paper to the sheet.
Wait till the paper dries off, remove the cut outs and watch their imprints on paper! Now this is ready for some more drawing & decoration
Bleeding Crepe Paper 2: Color Mixing
Red+ Blue= Purple Blue + Yellow= Green and what not!
Bleeding Crepe Paper 3: Palette Paint
Put some left over crepe paper into palettes of water. The color flows into the water, ready to be painted with!
