HAND PAINTED TREE ROCK

 HAND PAINTED TREE ROCK:

This craft took a little bit more time, as I had to paint the background of the rock and let it dry first, before continuing with the rest of the painting. 

I first used a sponge to create a gradual fade on the rock from black to white/grey using acrylic paint. After this dried, I painted the black tree silhouetteI then painted flowers using yellow, gold, and red acrylic. 

If you would like your rock to be water-proof and glossy, remember to seal with Mod Podge!!

SHARPIE, SHELLS, SHINGLE!!

SHARPIE OWLS:

This week is an extremely simple craft that anyone can do. All you need is a sharpie and some Mod Podge if you want a good waterproof gloss (I do this so that I can put mine in the garden!) 

I would advise sketching your pattern over in pencil first before using sharpie unless you are confident! Also, be sure that your sharpie is dry before you apply the Mod Podge otherwise it will smudge your wonderful pattern!!
