Here are some of our Snowy North art pieces. I think they are really lovely!
The process includes:
wet-in-wet watercolor to create the gorgeous sky
black tempera paint to create the distant trees
a template and the black paint for the animal silhouette
strips of heavy white paper and a credit card to smear paint with for the trees in the foreground
scissors to cut paper strips for the trees
glue sticks to construct the trees
clear glitter to outline the horizon line and fill in the moon shape and some of the foreground
foam dots to glue the birch trees to the background to give the illusion of depth
a quote print-out about snow and funky scissors to cut out the phrases or words to be glued on to the artwork
Lots of steps, to be sure, but lots of fun! We really enjoyed making these.
