Rachel's SOC week 3 X 2

 
 
 
 
 
Rachel chose to keep her page smooth this week.  She used water color pencils, tube style water paint, white acrylic and stamps.  I love the simplicity of her page......and she thinks out where each patch of color will be, before adding it..... a really good eye for composition too.  The lighter shades are the water color pencil.  I am so glad to see her "try" some other mediums. 
 
Before working on our 4th of July center pieces, we thought we would do a trial run with the SOC colors. They both painted a bottle yellow, then added Crackle.......once it was dry she choose the lavender for her main color.  We didn't quite get the crackle we wanted, but she wanted to add glitter (what little girl doesn't like glitter???)  I gave her a really quick lesson with the double sided tape and let her loose........pretty good huh??  Then she picked out her initials form a bag of foam stickers.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by, please leave her a comment.
