Heart Sticker Resist Painting

 Inspired by

(run by Jamie of Hands On: As We Grow) and our own previous tape/sticker resist paintings, Honor & I created this beautiful art.  A photo of this painting is included in the ebook collaboration that I highlighted yesterday.

For this project, we used canvas, heart stickers, and washable paint …

Honor did a great job peeling off and placing the stickers just where she wanted them!

 Then, it was time to paint.  Honor chose to go with the traditional red associated with hearts!  She got a bit vigorous in her painting, which moved the stickers a bit … but I think, in the end, it gave it a cool effect.

The hardest part for me is waiting for it to dry!  Because I’m so excited to see how it will turn out!But, of course, I LOVE IT!

    The stickers remove MUCH easier off the canvas then paper. My first attempt at sticker/tape resist was on paper … but like canvas much more! Thanks for your comments … they mean so much!

    What a fun project … with lovely results! That it’s made on canvas makes it all the more special. I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/LivingMontessoriNow.
