Today my boredom turned into crafty tshirt time. While the little miss Saud she didn’t need anything new for back to school, I thought I would pimp out some of her old tees for her
I’ve returned to my original method of printing, and dragged out the good ole freezer paper roll. One thing I learned – freezer paper is very different than wax paper. Not all grocery stores carry it, but don’t try to substitute. Take the time. Find freezer paper.
Next time I think I will let the kid draw her own designs, afterall I have to let her use the tools I have provided her … Offer the lesson, and hands off while they work through their own trial + errors of perfecting their skills. We all work differently, and just because I paint left to right, doesn’t mean that’s the only way the job can be done.
This was hard for me in the beginning, to let the kid do it herself; her own way. But then one day she surprised me with just how creative and good she is. Now I actually ask her for ideas and inspiration.
And now I’m ready to paint more…
UPDATE: bee got crafty too. We saw jeans at urban behaviour that were all Doodled. Bee instantly said “oooh I wanna do that!”
