Our identical twin 3 year old grandsons love monsters (Henry) and robots (James).
Mommy Lisa painted monster faces for Henry and James’s new ‘big boy’ bedroom – but Grandma (me) was slow getting the robots done.
I finally got to it Saturday night.
Here’s the process:
Decoupage patterned paper on each 8×10 inch canvas.
Paint over the paper with acrylic paints (don’t worry about wrinkles – it adds to the vintage junkyard feel). Be sure to paint the edges.
Draw or print basic robot shapes
Use patterns to cut shapes out of patterned paper
Embellish with paint, stamps, more paper, old hardware, and other ephemera.
