Miss M has been loving a book she picked at the library: Bad Case Of Stripes by David Shannon. When Camilla Cream is not true to who she is (she is embarrassed to admit she likes lima beans) she breaks out in stripes and horrible other things until finally she is true to herself.
For our project, I printed a photograph of Miss M onto watercolor paper. I made sure to pick a picture where she had a bow in her hair, since Camilla Cream always has a pink bow in her hair no matter what else she looks like. Then Miss M painted on stripes with watercolors.
I was impressed how careful she was to match the color order she painted with the order on the book.
We cut it out and mounted it onto a black background to make it pop!
I am linking this project to stART over at A Mommy's Adventures and to Kids Get Crafty at Red Ted Art. Both these blogs have great ideas for fun book-related art projects.
