summer journal: finish the picture

July 5th, 2013

Super simple and super fun project. Cut out a square of a picture from a magazine or newspaper. Next, glue it to a piece of paper. Then finish the drawing. See what strange and hilarious things come out of it! Title of my children’s works appear below the pictures. (please excuse the crummy phone photos.)

    This is awesome! And totally modern art. We might have to do that this afternoon. It’s real darn hot here and we are stuck inside.

    I don’t have any kids, but I would love to play in such journal myself. It looks super cute, just like the super cute cat!

    fantastic! I love all the doodle coloring books where they give you a little pic to start with then you finish. But I never thought to make my own! Great idea!

    I am in love with pretty darn cute cat! This is rad! We spent hours making cork boats complete with decorated sails and cork people, I’m not sure who was more into it, my three year old or me :)

    this looks SO fun! every time I think that about something it’s pretty much a disaster with my kids, but I’m going to try this anyway. even if they don’t want to play along, I’m going to finish some picutures. ^_^
