Well, I’ve had a break from posting on this blog…but it hasn’t really changed what we do, so thought I would share a few of the boys’ latest beauties with you all
Here are some tea light lanterns they decorated yesterday. I can’t find link to tutorial but basically you mod-podge the jars, add strips of tissue paper and torn sheet music (this is “Winter Wonderland”) plus bits of glitter in our case They look beautiful with the little candles in:
The boys have also made some lovely paintings of winter trees:
(and yes, that is some more glitter!)
We have continued with the Sketch Tuesday and are all seeing real improvements in our sketching abilities. The boys have picked their favourites from recent assignments:
Gman likes his “something to cure a cold” sketch:
And Waif was especially proud of his “something you find in a toolbox”:
Oh, and we’ve been doing more Van Gogh inspired art. Van Gogh is both boys’ favourite artist at the moment.
Here’s Gman’s vase of flowers:
This will probably be the last post of 2010…see you in 2011. Let’s hope it’s a good one!
