Paint Party Friday! Leaves And Nature

Linking up with Paint Party Friday! Check out all the lovely artists!


Happy Friday! Hope you all had a lovely week. I’ve been stressing a little this week. My father will be staying with me permanently and I’m going to be taking care of him. It’s a bit stressful because I have both my girls at home doing online learning so I hope things will flow nicely. Fingers crossed. I’m sure it will be fine but I’m stressed and worried. My father is old and Can’t see very well. I also don’t want to see him grow older. My heart is so sensitive at the moment. I will do the best I can for my family. That’s all I can do. Take it one day at a time. I pray for God to keep everyone safe and healthy at this point. Each moment is a gift.

I’m going to be honest and tell you that I’ve already watched two Christmas movies. 😁 I’ve been so stressed that the only thing that has helped is the good spirit of Christmas. I watched “Love the Coopers” and “Christmas with the Kranks”

In the beginning of the week I took the girls for a little walk behind our home and we picked some leaves.

I then had my girls use crayons and do leaf rubbings. They had a lot of fun. My 8 year old set this picture up for the photo. She likes to be creative.

My daughter is studying plants in class and she grew these carrots. I find it so amazing how you can grow things in your own kitchen. Isn’t it fantastic? The possibilities are endless when growing plants.

It’s so nice to go outdoors and play in nature. We need to do it more often. We are stuck indoors doing school and on digital things too much. I’m going to try to get them out more often.

I also made one watercolour painting this week.

I’ve been reading “The Graveyard Book” by Neil Gaiman. So far I love it.

I hope you had a lovely week and I also hope you have a fabulous weekend. Be safe and much love and positivity. Thank you so much for reading my post today and thank you for your lovely comments. Take good care.

October Leaf Printing Paint Party Friday

Hello my friends and happy FRIYAY! I’m linking up with PAINT PARTY FRIDAY today and I wanted to say thank you to the lovely Eva and Kristin for Featuring me last Friday. I’m So grateful. Thank you very much from my heart. It means so much to me. It put a smile on my face and warmed my heart up.

Here is last Friday’s FEATURE.

So this week I sent my hubby out with the girls to pick various leaves for our family art time and they came back with beautiful assortment of leaves. Can you name a few? I think my favourite is the ginkgo leaf and the maple leaf. I do love Oak leaves but they didn’t pick any.

They are so lovely right? We then set out some paints, brushes, water and white paper and painted the leaves and pressed them on the paper. We also pressed the paper on top of the leaves. It’s always so nice to sit together and make art.

Little hands so very special, painting and pressing down leaves and paper and getting messy. So much fun. Here is what we came up with.

It’s so much fun and I truly hope you try this out. My girls and I had a lovely time creating these pieces and I can’t wait to make more prints. Maybe this weekend we can try leaf rubbings! 😁

I hope you enjoyed my post and I truly hope you try creating art with leaves. Have a beautiful weekend and thank you for reading my blog post.
