Squish Paintings!

So easy and so fun for all ages.

Just get some paint, get some paper.

I love Martha Stewart’s paint colors, they are gorgeous. As for paper, card-stock is fine, printer paper is fine, construction paper is fine. All will have some buckling depending on how much paint you apply. You can always flatten them down under a stack of books after the paint has dried.

Throw, drip, swirl that paint onto one half of your paper. JUST HALF!

Fold paper.

Peel back paper.

TA-DA!

Squish paintings done by the kids in Passport to Imagination with me at Michael's. Not all instructors will do this, I came up with it on the fly when we had an hour left in the craft session.

I especially love the purple and white one, it looks like a Venezuelan Poodle Moth! Don’t you think?
