Projects for Teenies to make

Teens like to write and decorate their jeans and shoes so here are some ideas! However the first project is on canvas; but, you can modify for jeans.

Snowflakin' Cute

Materials:  acrylic paints (we used white, a dark blue, and a medium blue), paint brushed, tape (we used regular scotch tape), jeans or canvas, glitter, modge podge, newspaper

Put newspaper down to cover the surface.  i.e.: table
If you use canvas you will have to paint the canvas blue but first tape out your 'snowflake' and then just paint.
Completely dry peel off the tape.
For jeans tape the outside of the design and then pain and dry.
Paint some more white lines to make it look more snowflake-y.
Grab your modge podge, or regular Elmer's glue, and some glitter.
'Paint' the modge podge to the white area of the snowflake only, and then sprinkle on the glitter.

Simple Snowman Canvas Art

Materials: Newspaper, 16 x 20 canvas or jeans, mixing bowls, chalk, paint brushes, acrylic paints (we used turquoise blue, Black), spouncer

Start with 16 x 20 canvasses and used mixing bowls to trace my snowman shapes with chalk.
Paint the outside of the snowman outline - in this case, one turquoise blue and one black. After that dried use my Spouncer to add eyes, mouths and polka dots on my carrot noses.

Paint my snowman with Mod Podge - just the white parts- and then sprinkled the wet Mod Podge with clear crystal glitter.
Then dipped my Spouncer in Mod Podge and dotted all my snowflakes again. Sprinkle them with glitter, too.
Shook off the excess glitter and gave the whole canvas a little spatter of white paint.

Share your ideas on this or anything here on the blog either here or e-mail me at stipple@verizon.net.  I look forward to hearing from you!
