Well hello, hello, hello and welcome to the very first edition of Ready, Set, Craft – the craft linky for everyone from fimo beginner to googly eye pro. Andrea from All You Need Is Cake And Love and I have come up with this linky for two reasons: a) to force ourselves to get a little more creative and b) to give everyone the chance to show off their craft projects.
I am making the start this week with a really simple yet fun craft activity: messy painting. I know, experienced craft fans might not find this very thrilling, but Amy really enjoyed herself and kept herself entertained with her paint pots and canvas for a good 40 minutes. I also thought it would be a good idea to introduce her to craft activities by giving her the chance to explore herself and take steps in her own pace.
We covered the garden table in card board, sat down and I asked Amy, if she wanted to draw a picture for Oma. She started with some careful brush movements in red and yellow
Then she threw some green into the mix
And then it all went a bit mental. Amy made use of the entire colour pallet and did not only use her brush, but also her fingers to cover the canvas in every colour available. It was lovely to see that she was getting more experimental and confident and the canvas she created will make a lovely little present for my mum. It is part of the Hallmark Recordable Artwork set that allows you to show off your piece of art in a black frame and record a message for your loved one, but unfortunately I just did a quick Google Search and noticed that it has been discontinued.
Anyway, now it’s time for you to show off your craft projects from last week – or whenever. There really aren’t any rules. Grab, the badge below, add your link and check out some of the other entrants. You might feel inspired! Ready Set Craft!
