Artsy Craftsy - May Entries
Here is our entry to the Artsy Craftsy Challenge for May.
Edited to add some more... and some more details
Plate Art - This one is simple. Just pick up a Styrofoam plate and paint it.
Earring and Necklace Stand - Simple again. Thermocol board, painted.
Flower Float (It kept moving on water so couldn't get a good water shot)
This is a styrofoam bowl cut into the flower shape and painted.
A leaf wall hanging
Thermocol board cut into the shape of a leaf and painted. Mount it on a cardboard and hang it up on the wall.
This time, Pattu was so very involved in this whole thing. The room was a mess every evening and am sure my maid is expecting an extra sum for clearing up every day.
Entry 1. The Photo Frames - Mother's day gift from Pattu to both Grandmoms. Two thermocol boards, one cut out in the center to make space for the picture and stuck on top of the base board with just a slit on one side through which the picture can be slipped in. There's a slit at the top to actually insert the picture and it is operational :)
Pattu did some base colouring and me the details. One has pista and sea shells (coloured by Pattu) stuck to it.
Entry 2 - A Pen Stand - This was Pattu's idea. She accidentally poked a hole in that styrofoam bowl and I surprised her by calling it a 'neat idea'!
Entry 3 -Pattu's Room (sans the mess)
Entry 4 -Arty Clips - Pattu did base colouring and me the details. Cut out shapes on a styrofoam plate and paint them. Stick it on a clip (the ones we use for clothes?). I wanted a wooden clip ideally but couldn't find one. I feel the clips are a bit too big for the shapes here...they should cover up the entire clip.
Entry 5 - Streamer - Stringed assortment. Pattu did all the colouring but for the details on the butterfly. She even broke one of the tail fins of the fish
Entry 6 - A house and a park - Pattu's Caretaker's kids had come over and they did this. Such wonderful girls!
