Artsy-Craftsy-Feb-2011

A blog called mindfull meanderings runs contests every month…The Theme for Artsy-Craftsy-February-2011  is “Crepe Art”

I am submitting my crepe paper work. this is inspired from stain glass artwork found in churches. it is placed in my bedroom window to block the afternoon sun. the whole room is full of color because of this.

 

Suitable for ages 3.5 to older.

Requirements

  • Box board
  • cutter
  • glue
  • different color crepe paper
  • scizzor
  • scale
  • pencil.

 

Take the size of box board depending on the size of window.

Cut geomertic shapes or you could make some design on it…like a modern art tree or some theme like flowers.

Cut using a cutter (Parents should not give cutters to kids below 8 yrs..) instead parents can fold the board and kids can make and dent and cut the shape

Once all pcs are cut, cut crepe paper 1/2 inch bigger than the size of the shape using the cut pc

stick crepe paper on one side only.ensure that it doesnt overlap. Try doing it as neatly as possible

Voila.

About Sunayna

With a maturity level that swings from 60 yr old to a 6 yr old, and a bug to write, I laugh, I write, I think, I bore (sometimes) and I live. Born and brought up in Mumbai, shifted to USA for a little while after her marriage but misses Mumbai terribly and awaits return. I have PG degrees from XLRI and Annamalai University and worked in the Corporate World for five odd years but quit it in 2009 and embarked on my heart’s pursuits.Started “Art with Sunayna” (artwithsunayna.wordpress.com) to teach and sell art for NGOs. Also a certified graphologist (sos4graphology.com) who helps everyone to understand themselves better by using a mix of graphotherapy, healing and affirmations and corporates to hire better amongst other fun workshops. In midst of all this and being a home maker, gardener and photographer, I also find the time to write from my daily life experiences. Was the Mumbai reporter for Evergreen Magazine. Many articles have been published in TOI, New woman, Women’s era and she is a proud contributor at many other e-magazines and sites. She is a part of the anthology “Mighty Thoughts” and “The second Life.” check them out here In my little spare time, I also maintains a blog here and can be contacted at sunayna dot pal at gmail.
