We’re putting a Valentine twist on the Tissue Paper and Window Collage over at Filth Wizardry. The colors are just gorgeous and I couldn’t be happier with the finished result.

Blue School Gel for Tissue Paper Collage on Glass
Buy a bottle of this fab glue on Amazon

The “how-to” over at Filth Wizardry calls for clear glue pens which I haven’t been able to locate. Instead, we used Elmer’s washable school gel (watered down) and foam brushes. The collage has held up nicely so far, let’s hope it lasts through February – we need a pop of color over here!

Creative Idea for an Art Inspired Present

I’m always on the lookout for unique gifts that encourage creativity and I just had to share this one — blank pop-up books. Paired with markers and a classic storybook it would make an awesome themed present. You might recall I blogged about our mutual obsession with pop up books and a few of our favorites a while back. Now that Claire his hit age … Continue reading Creative Idea for an Art Inspired Present

St. Patrick’s Day Lacing Cards | Shamrock and Rainbow Lace Ups

You’ll have to excuse my less than perfect attempt in Photoshop, but it gets the job done. I’m thinking this is far less of a craft failure then my puffy paint to soap crayon attempt (sorry, couldn’t help … Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day Lacing Cards | Shamrock and Rainbow Lace Ups
