Painting Poppies

This weekend, I had the opportunity to go to a poppy painting class with a group of my friends from the church plant. It was a great time of hanging out and expressing a little bit of pent up creativity! In one of my many former lives, I was a high school student in an AP Art class. I love to sketch, draw and paint but you know, life kinda gets in the way.

Steps to Poppies

I’ve got to say that painting this weekend reawakened my love of being creative through painting. Jenny, the instructor of the studio, is an incredible watercolorist and I was very inspired seeing her original works all over the studio area of the classroom. Maybe someday I’ll get to take a watercolor class…

Finished Poppies Painting!

It was so much fun getting to paint with these ladies and I love that each of our paintings ended up being so different and distinctly reflective of our unique personalities.

Caroline Wright – August’s Humid Decline

I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this. Caroline Wright is a local Austin artist and I have stalked this piece of art for quite some time. It’s been all over pinterest (see here and I can’t seem to find the other one – it was displayed in an entry of a beautiful home) and I really wanted it for my own home.

And guess what, it’s even more beautiful in person hanging in our new living room.  Here’s a little sneak peak. . .

dining table transformation

We had this dining room table – it was functional but pretty boring and not in great condition.

So I had an idea. I’m sure I saw it on pinterest somewhere but I didn’t pin it. I started by priming the table with Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer because you don’t have to sand before applying. Makes life easier.

Then I painted it. The base is a beige-y grey.

The top? Chalkboard paint. I finally fell for this DIY trend. I’m pretty sure you can put chalkboard paint on anything and it’s all on pinterest.

Turns out you have to ‘prime’ the top of the table with chalk before drawing on it for the first time.

Wiped down and looking like a chalkboard!

‘Mom said I could draw on the table!’

‘I’m not even getting in trouble for this!’

Circles. Circles. And more circles!

I think this is a success! His drawing reminds me of Kandinsky’s Farbstudie Quadrate Circles. Maybe I have an artist on my hands? Wishful thinking? Maybe.

Not only is this a great way to occupy my little monkey, I think it will be very fun to use the chalkboard top for dinner parties – labeling food and drinks just got a lot easier!

Toddler Tuesdays: mom’s day, birthdays, stoplights and foam

It’s a quick toddler tuesday around here since we are busy up to our ears with a bathroom remodel (before and after coming soon!), work and some fun getaways!

I took the marble paintings Jude made and turned them into mother’s day cards for all the grandmas in our family. Took a little inspiration from Marimekko and cut out poppy shapes and glued them to construction paper.

And then my mom’s birthday is coming up soon so we took one of Jude’s watercolors and cut it into a heart and wrote our happy birthday wishes.

We got to get away this weekend to Fort Worth for a college classmate’s wedding so we dropped Jude off with my parents. My mom always has fun activities to do with Jude and like me, she loves food. She made these cute stop light jelly cookies with Jude. They were quite the hit!

And finally, she showed up a fun way to use bubbles – wrap cheese close around the bottom of a toilet paper roll and the bubbles turn to foam! Jude thought the foam was perfect to jump on.

toddler tuesday: zoo and paint

We went on a visit to the Austin Zoo, which is less of a zoo and more of an animal rescue. We always enjoy visiting the animals that are there.

Jude’s favorite animal was this giant pig. Her name was Babe. There was a peacock and a chicken that kept trying to steal the pig’s food. It was hilarious. He also loved the talking parrots – they were hilarious. Called Jude a ‘rugrat’.

One of our favorite things to do at the zoo are to feed the goats. . .

Happy to feed the goat

and the deer. . . How cute are they?

We did some water coloring. . .

Which quickly turned into face painting! Silly boy.

toddler tuesday: paint and marbles

And welcome to another Toddler Tuesday! The marbles have been quite the hit around here lately. The marble run that I showed you last week is still in high demand but we upped the anty: we put the marbles in a box with paint. Pretty sure Jude would do this for the rest of his life if I let him.

Marble Painting

I think we made about 20 of these painting on this particular day. And thankfully I actually like the way this toddler art looks so I might be turning it into something else very soon. . .

Other than that we have been enjoying our beautiful weather, playing at parks, taking bike rides . . . love the spring in Texas.

Toddler Tuesday

Still spending a lot of time at the pool, so we haven’t been doing a whole lot of activities, but I have a few to share with you today!

I made some ice cubes and colored them with food coloring. Pop them out and you have a rainbow of cold paint that is fitting for our 105+ degree temperatures we have been having!

Colored Ice Cubes

Surprisingly, you can write with them pretty easily before they start to melt!

Painting with Colored Ice Cubes

Don’t expect this to be a clean activity! The food coloring stains hands, bellies, arms, faces. . . But we just swim the stains off!

Painting with Colored Ice Cubes

I actually really liked the way his art work turned out! Modern art anyone? I could frame these!

Jude has recently found some playing cards in our house and LOVES them! So we worked on sorting the different numbers, the suits, colors, etc. Who knew that playing cards could be so versatile!

Not a whole lot to share with you from this Toddler Tuesday. We have been at the pool more than we have been doing anything else. The pool is good.

But we have been painting a little. It all starts with some paint and a brush. . .

Painting - it starts with a brush . .

And then the brush is discarded for more tactile painting (and tasting) with fingers. 🙂 I decided we needed to paint the letters in his name. He’s currently obsessed with spelling his name. It’s cute.

Then we cut them out. Pretty cute! I’m thinking we’ll hang these with some clothespins on a string in his room. Display a little toddler art!

Toddler Tuesday

It’s that time of week once more – Toddler Tuesday! We have been spending bunches of time in the pool. Jude has finally figured out how to monkey walk and blow bubbles. We are well on our way to swimming, right? I’m pretty sure this kid would live in the water if I let him.

We also spent some time building a fort out of some sheets and light stands. It looks a bit like a circus tent, doesn’t it?

Sheet Fort!

Jude thought it was so fun that all his stuffed animal friends had to go hang out with him in the fort. We will definitely be doing this again.

Sheet Fort!

And we finally did another outdoor art project. I found this idea on pinterest and it couldn’t be easier. Cornstarch, food coloring and just enough water to make it have a paint-like consistency. Then you have chalk paint!

Chalk Paint

Here are Jude and his buddy Camp starting the painting process.

Once they figured it out, it turned into splatter paint time!

Two messy boys. I love it.

And here is the art they created! So perfect.

Such good friends, messy together! I’m sure they will make many more messes together in the future.
