Just A Little Creativity: Reverse Stencil Scratch Art Effect {Painting with Kids}

Scratch art. Paint relief, anything. But, remember being in art class in school, and making scratch art with crayons? You colored with all your crayons in your box, covered the entire page with black, then used a stylus tool to "scratch" the black to make a design. This painting project is very similar. -First, using a wood board (I found mine at the Dollar Store) have your child paint the entire area with a variety of colors. -When it's dry, use stickers or vinyl to cover some of the colorful painted area. Next, have your child paint over the entire board, including the stickers, with black. Think of the sticker as a reverse stencil.

The areas that the stickers covered now pop out against the black. This is a simple project with a big result, that your youngster will be proud of creating, and you'll be proud to hang in your home. Remember to link your projects here every Thursday at the *Get Creative* party!
