Thought I would get a head start on Mothers day.
I love that the Americans go all out with their decorations, but I am always a little behind with my prep. ie I only think on the day, 'Oh wouldn't it have been nice too..........'
So, after making the St Patricks day hats and clovers on the day, getting them up by 7 o'clock at night, I decided to be on the ball this time.
I was thinking of doing something along the lines of this from Filth Wizardy because I thought it looked just lovely.
But the paper I had did not lend well to rubbings and I didn't have leaves anyway. I was attempting to cut shapes out and rub them, but my paper was just a little too thick.
I had begun to cut out all the letters in advance, for our grand rubbing, so now had to think of another plan.
AHA! Paint around them!
Sure, even my wee man could get in on that!
We were getting all set for it, with me trying to figure out how to keep all these letters in place whilst my two painted over them, when I remembered These!
Now seemed the perfect time!
So, I stuck down our paper. This is from a roll that we got from the ELC to go with Darling Bs easel.
She did pretty well. She is so quick to just answer 'I don't know, mummy' in ever such sweet tones, but I try to persevere without losing my rag. Or give up, whichever seems best given her mood.
Thats the Dervish, using our lovely paper as his car track! :-)
It was pretty plain sailing from here.
Ya just gotta blow!
Pretty hard, it turns out!
It was like Twister, for fingers!
I will have to add a post showing you how it looks on Sunday.
