Last week I just came back from vacation in Italy with my boyfriend and I loved every minute of it!
This is me at the Rialto Bridge in Venice.
The boyfriend and I at the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
Since it is summer and if you are looking for something fun, easy, and cheap to do...try making watercolor salt art!!! This is my example I used to show my little campers 2 days ago.
Here's a quick guide on how to make this awesome craft.
-construction paper (I find dark paper look the best for the end result)
-salt (lots of it)
-watercolors and paintbrush
-cup of water
- First use a pencil and draw any design you wish on the construction paper.
- Then use elmer's glue and trace over your pencil drawing with glue. For the little ones, you can do this for them.
- Add salt! Lots of it and shake the excess off. Wait and let the salt dry on the glue.
- After the glue dries, use watercolor paint to color the salt. I found that using a lot of water makes this process easier. be careful of not brushing the salt off the paper. Use the paintbrush more as a water dropper (let the watercolors drip off your brush).
- Let it dry again and it's finished!
Here are some of my camper's masterpieces:
This is one of the dragon ball Z characters. I did the glue for him and it was tough but worth it!
