Ombre Painted Canvas with Starfish

Corner News

Happy Saturday!! We had an interesting week at school. Lice! Every year this comes up. Hopefully we kept it at just 2 kids and that will be the end of it. Next week will be Valentine’s parties and fun. The preschool buys heart shaped pizzas and the kids think it’s cool.  We usually just order heart shaped pizzas at home too. I just buy a couple of little things for the girls and my husband and call it good.

I have a simple little craft for you this week. I found a pack of small canvases at Goodwill awhile back and finally decided to use one. I also picked up a couple of starfish at a yard sale and combined them with the canvas.

I guess I didn’t take any before pictures, but here are the paint colors I used. I had a white and a light blue. I also mixed some blue and white together to make a lighter blue that I could blend together on the canvas.

So I started with the white at the top of my canvas. Then I added the mixed blue and then the light blue. After each color was applied, I went over each color again and blended it more with the next one, creating an ombre’ effect. Here is the white and mixed blue.

Once the paint was dry, I added the starfish. I used tacky glue to attach them to the canvas. Here you can see the darker blue too.

Just the perfect little touch to remind me that summer IS coming again! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Sunshine and Blessings
