Note for my German- speaking visitors
Liebe deutschsprachige Besucher, herzlich willkommen auf meinem Blog. Ich schreibe hier für Euch auch auf Deutsch. Deutsch ist nicht meine Muttersprache. Da ich die Sprachschule nur 8 Wochen besucht habe werdet Ihr manchmal Schreibfehler, falsche Satzstellung etc. hier entdecken - macht nix, oder?

Schmunzeln und korrigieren erlaubt!

Vielen Dank für Euren Besuch!

Some of the posts on this blog cover products that are sponsored. Sometimes I receive fabrics or other products at no cost to me. Despite this, all opinions are my own, and neither do I use any prepared text from the sponsors, nor do I get paid for the blog post. If I link to shops and products, I do so on my own will, and do not get paid for it. Most of the craft supplies I show or talk about have been purchased by me, or I have on my own will asked the company for a sample, and have not been required to blog about it.

Einige Blogberichte auf diesem Blog beinhalten Produkte
, welche ich kostenlos zur Verfügung gestellt bekommen habe. Trotzdem sind alle Meinungen, die in den Beiträgen geäußert werden, meine eigenen, und ich werde für diese Berichte nicht bezahlt. Desweiteren verwende ich keine von Sponsoren vorbereiteten Texte. Wenn ich zu Shops oder Produkten verlinke, dann tue ich dies aus eigenem Willen und werde dafür nicht entlohnt. Die meisten Bastelprodukte und Schnittmuster habe ich selber gekauft oder ein Muster angefordert, ohne verpflichtet oder gebeten worden zu sein darüber zu berichten.

Easy abstract painting - tutorial

My little 2.5 year old artist has pre-k vacation so I do not have much time to craft, but we have been painting a lot. Tina was bringing beautiful paintings from the kindergarten and I asked how they make them. For the first kind you will need some box with flat bottom, a glass marble and some paint. Use a higher box if you can find one. Our marble jumped out a few times. secure the paper (we used thicker paper) to the bottom of the box with a dab of glue or scotch tape, make a couple of squirts of paint, throw the marble in and let the fun begin!

For the second kind, mix some water color and pour into a spray bottler or even better into a plastic water gun. Fix the paper somewhere outside on a fence and shoot.

Miss Picastina also made some pretty watercolors with the paintbrush. So pretty!

We also made some painted stones following the tutorial from Susan at Living with Punks. Sorry for the i-phone pic.

And some polymer clay beads and buttons for some more necklaces and other crafts.


  1. we LOVE marble painting! I ahve yet to try the point & shoot painting but it is on my To Do List! Love your stones - I want some badly!
