Mixed Media Art

This project took us 2 separate sessions to complete.
On day one we mixed some multi-colored sparkles with purple paint and Hudson created freely on a small canvas.

Then needing time for the paint to dry we left the project for a couple of days (it didn't take a couple of days to dry, there was just a scheduled day off school in between :))

Picking up this art work again I added some new materials for Hudson to use.

I punched out several different shapes from some coordinating scrapbook papers.

And set Hudson loose with Modge Podge.

I added a large wired ribbon (stuck with hot glue) to hang the masterpiece,

Look he even signed an H in the bottom left corner.  This is headed into the mail soon for a very special Great Grandma's birthday present :)

The bow and the signature made all the difference! Art lesson in jammies, looks like a special moment. You aren't just creating art and birthday presents, you're creating memories.
