Sunflower Printing


With the sunflowers in the garden looking particularly beautiful at the moment we had a go at printing our own version to make some pretty wrapping paper for an upcoming birthday.

 


Using half an onion and a carrot as our printing tools


Painting outside is so much more relaxing! All the mess not in the house and so much more room - the summer is definitely the season for doing some of the larger or mess art projects.

 

The finished wrapping paper.  One of the things I have found is that poster paints do have a tendency to flake off when dry - not so good with wrapping it around presents.  I have found that adding a bit of water to the paint seems to help or alternatively you could use acrylics.



Nothing like sunflowers to make you smile.
