Can you believe how quickly this season is passing? I’ve been trying to soak it in especially now that the sun is out more often than not lately. We’ve had a lot of gray and rain this autumn. In October we took some time to enjoy a chalk pastel project. Tricia over at Hodgepodge has a wonderful set of tutorials. I posted on the Blog, She Wrote facebook page about Tricia’s free chalk pastel tutorials, but I wanted to be sure and share here on the blog as well.
|The kids all tried several apples & pumpkins- a few tried leaves. Even E14, who doesn’t particularly enjoy flexing his artistic muscles, enjoys chalk pastels.|
|R12 started making her own designs. She really lights up when I pull out the pastels.|
Pastels are so fun to use and so forgiving! Next, I want to share what we did with some of these after we finished making them. The results were splendid so stay tuned!
