Masterpiece Monday


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.

Now it is your turn! Leave a comment below with a link to your Masterpiece! Then go and Hop around and take a look at other people’s masterpieces. Happy Monday 🙂

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
