This past weekend, we celebrated Hope’s 7th birthday. We booked a session at the local Paint Lounge to paint canvasses and eat cake.
Lily and I painted the big “7” – the piece was a collaborative effort using watercolour paint on charcoal paper (we used charcoal paper because watercolour paper is very expensive). I found the original idea at the Handmade Home.
For party favours, I decorated paper bags with this ”Every Child is an Artist” printable at Discovery Moments.
Inside the favour bags, we included a watercolor pallet, paintbrush, Van Gogh inspired sunflower seed pack, and pocket colour wheel. The seed packs are one of my photoshop projects and have one of my favourite Van Gogh quotations:
If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
Hope was very pleased with the celebration, can you tell?
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
