Sunshine cuteness

Sunshine cuteness!!!

Kawaii paper plate sun!!

Our plain white paper plates from @colessupermarkets and our little felt triangls from a kmart mosaic kit in the kids craft section, spray paint effect using kmart fluro pump bottles. We used a stapler to attach triangles into the plate.

Using paint markers or sharpie markers for the sweet face.

Wildflower book inspo

Those book is so so sweet!!
By @melaniemcleanbrown & @saragillinghamstudio

A beautiful story showing the inner strength it can take to define ourselves on our own terms, and how  supporting one another can help us grow.

We made some simple cardboard flowers inspired by the sweet artworks in this book.

Paper mache bowl

Paper mache plates, how beautiful did these turn out!!?

Who doesn’t love decorating paper mache!?…… these plain bowls from @zart_art and added a pop of colour from @globalcolours and the outside painted with that devine copper paint.
This design reminds me of a bright festive pinwheeel.
For a beautiful finish we added a gold posca line to divide each colour and around the trim.
These will definitely come in handy to hold our crafty supplies!!
