As per request (thanks, singingrabbitskull!), I... - Mean Guys with Cloaks Melted Beads and Accessories Have you ever made accessories with melted beads? This is so fun and easy to do! During the weekend we made some melted bead jewelry and a few bookmarks. My girls could not stop making their own earrings and seriously this is so affordable that you don’t feel bad when they lose them. Look how cute they look… So fun! If you have never melted beads before let me tell you, this is a 15 minute project. You can make a ton of jewelry, bookmarks, hair clips, and even magnets for under $5. They are perfect for gifts! Here is the Tutorial The first thing you want to do is preheat your oven at 425 degrees F. While the oven heats up place a baking parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet. Make the shapes placing your beads to your like. Have fun mixing colors and playing with different combinations. You can see below what the beads look like before and after melting. The flowers will take 10 minutes to melt. I like to make them when the kids are at school or playing outside. Go to the backyard to play! …bookmarks - Silhuettmålning I våras arbetade vi med att skapa silhuetter i bildämnet. En Silhuett/siluett är bilden av en person, ett objekt eller landskap som enbart består av en kontur och där det som är i silhuett ofta är svartfärgat. Termen Silhuett, som har fått sitt namn efter fransmannen Étienne de Silhouette (1709-1767), användes till en början under 1700-talet för att beskriva profilporträtt eller andra bilder utklippta i tunt svart papper (Wikipedia). Förmågan som eleverna tränade under arbetets gång var att skapa bilder med hantverksmässiga tekniker och verktyg samt med olika material. Den här gången använde vi oss enbart av vattenfärger. varje elev skall efter avslutat arbete veta vad en silhuett ärvarje elev skall skapa sin egen silhuett genom att använda relevanta tekniker på ett i huvudsak fungerande sätt. Eleverna skapade först sin bakgrund för att sedan, när denna torkat, lägga på sin silhuett. Innan vi startade upp arbetet gick vi igenom olika begrepp som kan vara användbara i bildarbetet:

Science project: Food-dye Color Wheel Every year about this time I start to really, REALLY crave color. Like clockwork, every January I start scheming about decorating with yellow or orange or something bright just to liven things up a bit. It's been a little better this year because my kitchen is south-facing and everything is white and light blue, so it feels nice and light and airy. That being said, I still think more color this time of year is great. So, the kids and I made this fun food-dye color wheel the other day. It was such fun, and I couldn't believe how patient the kids were (ages 3 and 5), just staring at the colored water move slowly up the paper towels and mixing together. Here's what you need to make this fun color wheel: 6 clear cups 6 paper towels red food dye blue food dye yellow food dye Here's what you do to make the color wheel: 1) Fill 3 cups with water and mix in red food dye into one, blue food dye into the second and yellow food dye into the third.

Add a Pop of Color to Your Glassware! Looking to add a little color to your glassware collection? Or perhaps just want to give some of those acrylic party glasses a creative upgrade? Each of these glasses took 5 minutes or less – all you need is a few paint pens and a good playlist! :) Materials: - stemless acrylic wine glasses - paint pens For materials, we used these stemless acrylic wine glasses from Crate & Barrel and Decocolor Opaque Paint Markers. For the confetti style ones, it’s about getting dotty (sound familiar?). These dots definitely say “party time!” For the striped ones, start by striping around the glass from the base with your first color. The stripes on these feel a little bit nautical and can easily be created in a gradient style if you’re still jamming on ombre. Last we have the firework starburst style glass. Baby you’re a fiiiiiire-work! Note: These glasses are not dishwasher safe – simply wash by hand and let dry, and your colorful designs should stay intact.

I mitt huvud Den här bilduppgiften gjorde jag tillsammans med mina fjärdeklassare. Målet var att eleverna skulle göra en bild som uttryckte deras tankar. De fick börja med att rita ett självporträtt, som de färglade med färgpennor. När de var nöjda kopierade jag deras bilder på en färgkopiator, sedan använde vi kopian att arbeta vidare med. De tog sedan kopian klippte ut ansiktet och klippte av toppen av huvudet. Sedan limmade de upp ansiktena på ett färgat papper. Under arbetets gång kom vi in på diskussioner om ansiktets proportioner, hur man får håret att se verkligare ut om man målar i hårstrånas riktning, skuggor i ansiktet, mm. Iden till den här bilduppgiften fick jag härifrån.

Armband av plastpärlor – Perler bead bracelets Jag minns att jag gjorde armband av plastpärlor (även kallade Hama-pärlor, nabbipärlor, pärlplattepärlor eller strykpärlor) när jag var liten. Det var riktigt roligt att göra dem som vuxen också, kan jag konstatera. Jag har pysslat med plastpärlor förut och bland annat pyntat hörlurarna til min telefon. Det är alltid kul när man kan hitta fler användnings-områden för pysselmaterial som man redan har hemma. Utöver det trevliga faktum att barnen gillar att lägga pärlplattor, förstås. ——I remember making bracelets out of plastic beads (also called ironing beads, Hama beads, Perler beads, fuse beads or pegboard beads) when I was a kid. Jag använde mig av elastisk smyckestråd och testade lite olika mönster med pärlorna. Eftersom vädret är vackert och trädgården grönskar så fint gick jag ut och fotograferade denna gång. Dottern blev också inspirerad och gjorde ett armband helt på egen hand. ♥ /My daughter was also inspired and made a bracelet all on her own
