* Kid's Art: Mixed Media Rainbow



The Frog Princess "E" loved her sister's mixed media piece with tape resist.
She wanted to make one too. She went with a "rainbow" theme.

She used: watercolor, tissue paper, Elmer's school glue,
shimmery dot paints, and a bit of oil pastel on watercolor paper with painter's masking tape.


Such a happy painting. I love the sun.
It looks like an Eric Carle picture to me.

I think this one will be framed with a big white mat to hang up downstairs.

Mrs. B sent us to check you out - what a lovely blog!

I homeschool my son and one of his favorite subjects is art. If I don't give him any direction, he paints rainbows. LOL

Both the painting AND the "mixed media piece" are so pretty.
