I’m still working on my nursery redo and one thing I finished this weekend was a painting project with Ellie.
I bought a canvas and some paints recently at The Flower Factory for super cheap. First, I made an H with painter’s tape.
I then let Elliott go wild with some paints. She did one layer…
we let it dry and then she did a second layer the next day.
I hadn’t planned on allowing brown on the painting, but that is the only color Ellie seems to like. Literally, every time we color she searches for the brown crayon. Last week in her Sunday school class she colored a whole picture brown. She loves brown so it ended up, unfortunately, on the painting.
After the second layer dried, I peeled the painter’s tape off and hung it up above Harper’s crib. It’s a part of a collage of pictures frames (that I got at IKEA) and other artwork, but I haven’t filled all of the frames yet. I already like how it turned out (even without pictures, hmmm), it was super-easy, and Elliott loves that she painted it and it’s hanging up in Harper’s room.
