Hey there Sweet Friends, today on the blog I am going to introduce you to my new friend, Dionne Woods from The Turquoise Iris and Lil Ms. Iris.
Many of you have little children at home, just as I did (mine really aren’t that little anymore)! This is a great video on You Tube that introduces the little ones or big ones, in your life to painting. Check out Dionne’s channel here.
You’ll notice that she also teaches classes on painting canvases and furniture. Now you get why I am attracted to her videos.
I followed along on Saturday, February 23rd’s version of Lil Ms. Iris and painted the ocean on canvas. It was a really fun process and I wanted to share it with you. Here is my final project.
Dionne and Iris paint every Saturday morning, but you can always go back and watch the videos at your leisure.
Even though my boys are grown I still strive to teach and show them the importance of art in their live.
Any paint can be used, but I like using a water soluble paint that contains no VOC’s. For this project I used DIY Chalk Paint by Debi’s Design Diary. You also need a squirt bottle and a canvas. You can use a brush or your fingers. Add paint, spray the canvas and turn the canvas, it’s really that simple and fun. Here is a picture half way through of my process. Can you see how the paint is dripping.
Be sure to check out Dionne’s videos and share what you or your littles have created.
Make it a great day!
