{Craft} Natures paint

Painting outside with tulip leaves, dandelions and grass.


My brother, Mark, is at Parsons studying graphic design. This afternoon while talking on the phone my son outside to staple some paper together so he can make a book (he is not allowed to use the stapler because my friend Berit stapled through her finger at my house when we were in kindergarden).

Mark asked our son what he was going to create and gave us the idea to use natural pigments in his pictures.

We’re having fun figuring out our own natural color pallet.

    What a great idea! There’s not much to paint with except moss and sticks here in the Pacific Northwest this time of year BUT I’m going to keep this in mind for spring. Thanks for the inspiration!
