DIY- tissue paper art

:: child's play :: 
art in an hour

No doubt about it, life has been good to me.
The joy of grand-parenting over these summer months, has me limited to the artwork I will be producing in my studio. 
Yes, blog posts are not on a regular basis either... 
it is a "give and take" with time and energy for me. 
In the end, it is all worth it. 
As for you, my readers, please be patience. 
I am here... 
Enjoying moments like this, I know you understand. 
I decided to keep myself inspired and also share the experience with my precious 2 year old grandson. 
I am finding fun, easy, less than an hour art projects to work on together. 
Already putting plans into action for the weeks to come... I am excited! 
This art project series with be called- Art in a Hour 
There will be several that will consist of recyclable materials, have a home decor theme, and will be crafted using simple art techniques.
I will brake them down into hourly art tutorial steps, which I will create on my own, or have the help of little hands.
These beautiful papers are created from tissue papers. 
layer upon layer....
cutting up shapes and applying Mod-Podge (watered down) between each layer of tissue papers. 
Once dry, it becomes transparent paper. 
 tissue paper art
delightfully easy to craft.

talking to yourself...

do you paint by numbers?
is it a image you remember, outside your day?
a piece of cloth, a pattern, or texture that helps you capture the moment in art?
as for me... wishful thinking.
sometimes, not all the time, just applying wet paint gets me going.
honestly, I spend more time having to talk my way through... 
convince myself that it is all worth it in the end. 
do you talk to yourself? do you listen?
