Misting with wax pastels


What do you get when you leave a crafty kid and my craft supplies alone in a room, unattended for an hour?


 Ok, atleast this is what I got (and loads and loads of mess which I went crazy cleaning!)

 


My 9 year old niece had pulled out my stencil and started using it on water color paper to sketch it with a white wax oil pastel. Kids are very patient indeed! I had made homemade ink sprays and stacked them for another use. She beautifully sprayed these on stenciled sheet. When water based ink and pastels react, this is a fun  result.

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I really liked the whole shabby texture and colors that were created so we converted it into a simple card.

 


 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I stamped a pattern onto various card stocks , while she colored it and cut out butterflies from these. We added a dab of glitter to the background. We arranged it to create a nice color palette and added lace for a nice look.
