Easy Finger Paint Art

I'm finally starting to be in a crafty mood again, so hopefully I will have more things to share soon! It's funny how one little project can totally get you motivated again. But first, I wanted to share a little project the kids & I did over the summer.

I didnt get any pictures of the process, but it was easy. All we needed was some wrapped canvases, acrylic paint & stickers. Just decide on your design, saying or quote, and apply the stickers to the canvas.

(Layla's)


(Blake's)


(Mine)

Then choose your paint colors (Blake used 2, Layla used 3 & I used 4) and start smearing! We didn't use any brushes, just fingers! And the kids helped with mine. Super easy, and I think they turned out really cute!









I can't believe it's been so long since I posted a craft! Feels good to be crafty again. Good thing I guess, because Blake's birthday is this weekend, and I am participating in a Halloween Banner swap over at Monkeybox. Thankfully, Blake's party is going to be at the bowling alley, so I don't have too much to do, but I am making chocolate football pops, a bunting and the cake.
Have a good one!

This is so sweet! I love the idea (: it kind of reminds me of a wall art project I did here: http://michaelanoelledesigns.blogspot.com/2010/08/you-are-my-sunshine.html
But I like how you used stickers and then removed them after, instead of painting a stencil and trying not to get paint everywhere!
