Rainbows and Gold ~ St. Patrick’s Day Art
The girls and I loved this month’s theme. Went traditional with rainbows, clovers and gold. As usual I was frustrated with one of the St. Patrick’s Day art pieces and I honestly may paint over it next year.
At first I thought we were going to do a border which is why you can see faint pencil lines on the canvas. After two handprint practices it was apparent that that would NOT be part of this St. Patrick’s day painting.
At this point we realized we needed a background, which should have been painted first..oh well..best laid plans. Paityn wanted the pot sitting on the ground with sky. While most of the time they do it all, I ended up doing the smaller areas, while she painted the bigger areas for the background.
We were able to cover up the pencil marks and I think it tuned out pretty well. I couldn’t convince her to paint grass and in this picture it looks like the pot is filled with dirt instead of gold paint. About a week later we took them down and added actual gold glitter. I’ll need to take a picture next year when it is back up.
Nittaya knew she didn’t want a border on the front of her St. Patricks Day art. She had seen a stripped side border she liked, so we added that at the end. I love the fingerprint art she did on this one.
Just kidding.. she NEEDED to add some four leaf clovers. I love that the fingerprint theme was used again…ahh.. consistency.
You can see the border sort of along the top of the picture that she wanted. Her painting also got taken down and gold glitter added to the pot for more sparkle.
This was sooo cute in the beginning. Then I wanted to add consistency though rainbows and I went and screwed it all up….
I Love the cute saying and I think the clover turned out great, but I still can’t get over the rainbow trim I added. I was lucky to get the clover out of my 18 month old… I can always fix it next year.
