Doodling is a great way to warm up your creativity! Get your sketchbook and start making quick drawings of everything you see!
3 - 4 cups of flour
1/2 cup salt
2 T cream of tartar
2 T oil
1 1/2 cups boiling water
An easy clay for making things...
This clay is very easy to work with ... just let it set out for a few days to dry!
Before I paint I make a quick sketch with white paint.
Making a quick sketch helps me plan out where everything goes in the picture.
If I make a mistake I will paint over the white lines.
This way I can change things before I put all the colors on the painting.
Try this the next time you paint.
Winter is almost finished!
This is the perfect time to do some drawings and paintings that have a winter theme.
Doodle and draw winter memories while it is still cold outside.
Snowmen, snow forts, and snowflakes coming down make for beautiful paintings too.
Tell the story of your most memorable and fun part of winter.

Snow is o the way! It is the perfect time for crafts, painting, and drawing. I keep a box on my desk just for these quick crafts. These popsicle stick were left over from Christmas crafts and they needed painted. A wintery window scene seems appropriate. The red birds didn't make it into the clip. Add snowmen and small animals to tell a story!
Happy crafting and painting.
Keeping a sketchbook is a wonderful learning tool.
Sketchbooks are for keeping doodles and notes.
It is a way to think and keep track of ideas.
Little drawings, diagrams, and pictures all make up a good notebook.
Pictures from magazines or photographs can help demonstrate ideas.
Organize your sketchbook any way you want.
