After school yesterday, I asked Tinny to help me with an art project. He is the ultimate craft man, so I knew he would agree. I used a simple canvas I bought at JoAnn's, then just used craft paints. I put masking tape in two lines where I wanted the lettering to go (to keep it as straight as possible for a kindergartner), then I traced the outlines of the forks and spoons, and outlined them in black paint. After that I just let him do the rest of the painting himself. I love the faces!
I had originally thought I would just frame this art project he had done in school a few weeks ago, but I knew we could amp it up a little. I had been trying to find something for my kitchen dining nook for a long time, and I thought the fork and spoon idea was brilliant for that spot.
The lighting in the pictures looks a little drab, but the painting really does liven up the corner.
