I just can’t get enough of this leaf rubbing + watercolor resist + stained glass combo! I love it!
Maia and I made another crayon leaf rubbing banner (this time she totally got the hang of doing the rubbings with the side of the crayon) on a long sheet of paper cut from the easel roll. We used the watercolor paint we have in tubes, only because I wanted blues and yellows which we don’t currently have in liquid watercolors.
This time I cut the paper into rectangles to fill the panes of glass on our front door and we “painted” the reverse side with vegetable oil to make them more transparent.
I am in love with how this looks with the light shining through! If someone doesn’t stop me, I may end up covering every window in the house!
We had a sweet and mellow father’s day yesterday. It started with a plan of french toast and sausage, abandoned when we simultaneously realized we were out of eggs and that our favorite neighborhood breakfast joint was about to open. The day ended with card games played in Harry’s new tent (set up temporarily in the backyard) and peach pie. Goodness all around.
How was your father’s day?
