Floating City Art Project

Spud was home last week from school and we kept busy with all sorts of projects. Here's one we found on Art Projects for Kids. It was a quick and easy mixed media project that grabbed his attention. "I'll only do it if I can make it into a floating city!" "Go to town!" I say.

I love his stormy background. Here's mine ... not nearly as interesting ...

· Watercolour paper
· Watercolour pencils, brushes, jar of water, rags, glue and scissors
· Patterned paper, cut in circles, for the balloons
· White pastel,  to use as a resist, for the clouds
· Sharpie (we blow dried the pieces dry before adding Sharpie marker)
