We brought in the very last flowers of the season, rescuing them from a sure and hard frost. This is the most beautiful of our bouquets this year. Perhaps it is because it is the last and I am giving each flower more attention, just like the Petit Prince does for his flowers (oh what a wonderful story, so happy to be rediscovering it with my own children now – have you read it?)
With Halloween just around the corner, and winter right after that, time seems to be speeding up again. The languid days of summer are past and this year I feel rather jolted into this season, though we are enjoying it and making the most of the warmth and sun left.
Here is a quick mask craft, a pseudo papier mache how-to. For times when lengthy + messy papier mache isn’t possible. Hee
You start with a simple plastic mask, like the green one in the photo above. Then, using tissue paper you create ridges and relief, taping over with masking tape.
She wanted to create a sort of pig snout.
Once you’re all done with tissue paper, cover the whole mask wit masking tape pieces.
And then paint! She used plain white paint as a base coat.
Linking up today to Creative Friday here.
