This is Little’s Masterpiece She is really enjoying “smooshing” the paint between two pages and pour it out on a page. This particular art work has been drying for about 3 days, as it has the better part of her bottle of purple pain on it. I love watching her as she thoughtfully chooses her colors and where she wants their placement. This incidentally is not in her composition book journal. She had already done a smoosh page in that which was drying but wanted to keep painting and so this is the back or front (who can tell now) of a seed catalog that came in the mail to us.
I decided to try smooshing as well. I bought myself a beginners acrylics set of paints which I had never painted with before and experimented with them. So these pages kind of go together. they didn’t really have a theme beyond the colors.
This page has the paint and then some pictures I cute out of magazines as well as the key which is a sticker. This page says to me I am the sum of all my small steps and the key is to keep tying and keep moving forward because you can eat an elephant one bite at a time. Not sure if anyone is familiar with that saying but basically you can accomplish big things one small step at a time.
I am not sure what this page will be or what story it will tell when it is done. Right now I just like it.
