With all of my sisters in the same place for the past few days, we decided to have a craft/art time. We are all creative in different ways, so it was fun to see one of the sisters go for the pastels, while another grabbed the stamps and ink and another the watercolors.
|With all of my sisters: Andi, Patty, Krissy, Vicky, Me.|
Me? I decided to go for the tissue paper. I drew and cut out a hexagon out of construction paper and used it as a template for a slew of multi-colored tissue paper.
Tissue paper is prime for this project. When I started layering them on top of one another, it started creating a very cool falling block pattern:
I just kept layering and layering until I liked what I saw, glueing each piece down with a glue stick. Unfortunately, my original hexagon out of construction paper wasn’t perfect. Not nearly. I should have taken time to measure each side to make them even. So there are some parts that don’t line up. But, eh–I still like the way it turned out.
Although I originally did the project with the page horizontal, I kinda prefer it better vertical. But the way it hangs on the wall will be up to my sister, Victoria.
That’s right. We all traded our art projects when we were done so we could have something special from another sister in our home. It made for a fun morning activity. Anyone else bust out the craft paper and paints when they get together with their family?? Are you team vertical or horizontal??
