August 2016 : Sponging rocks.

I was painting rocks with my youngest one day and he seemed to be having difficulties painting with a paint brush. I grabbed an unused kitchen sponge and cut him a small cube. It made things a lot easier for him. I saw how much easier it was to blend the colours and decided to try too. next thing I knew I had painted about a dozen rocks with a sponge. After creating nice gradients with a sponge I waited for them to dry and painted silhouettes of different things on them. I like how the rocks turned out and my family, friends and neighbours were happy to take a few home to add their gardens.

I think I will try and make some more next season and use them for fundraising at the school. They run a kids boutique filled with homemade items made mostly by the grade eights which they sell as a mean to fundraise for their grade either end of year trip. I'm sure I can toss some their way to add to the sale. As usual, I am happy to make things and not sure what to do with it once I am done.
