FALL INTO CRAFTING..............

This is a great way to add some fall decor to your home AND
have artwork that is keepsake worthy as well!
~(and you should too!)~
for art project ideas that you can add your own twist to.
She actually works at a Catholic school, which is why her projects always seem perfect for Catholic homeschoolers!
Anyway, first we took a nature walk around our yard to look for leaves and other objects that could possibly be used and then we headed back inside to get started.
All that is needed for this project is: a medium weight canvas type fabric, acrylic paints and glitter.
And as you can see~ voila!
They each made a truly beautiful work of art.
I will eventually sew a backing on each individual print and hang them on the wall,
but for now they are hanging on our "art line" which looks like a laundry line,
but displays revolving drawings, paintings, etc.
I also had each of the kids write their name and the date on the bottom
so that we can remember the year.
I don't know why this is so important to me,
but I guess it is just another way for me to mark the passing of years,
which when you have growing children, seem to pass all too quickly!
