I’m contining to make youtube videos and following prompts when I find them interesting. Poetspice had a very nice crafts prompt for the month of August that I took part of.
The first week was…I’m not sure because I joined late.:/
Second week was scribble art (and that’s what I ‘ll be talking about)
Third week was a head and neck challenge and you can find what what I made for that here: http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=QEQ0wKzXAJE
The scribble art was interesting to me because I hadn’t heard of it before. It’s actually been around for ages but new to me is still new..well to me anyway.
What you do:
Start with a piece of paper and scribble scramble something random. Literally just a scribble but it helps if you fill the page somewhat.
Next you sit back and try to see any shapes inside of your scribbles. You color them in and add details to make them really pop.
It’s really interesting to see what you can come up with and how many little images you can find.
This was my scribble scrabble page when I was finished with it.
This was my oldest daughter’s page(who would like to start being called Cat on the blog by the way.)
My youngest daughter didn’t feel like doing this challenge so she drew pictures.
This was fun and it will be a good thing to try again. I could see pulling it out of my hat on a rainy day or something.
Since trying scribble art I’ve learned more about it and saw it over at I blog recently. She is actually starti.g a very cool Illustration Friday prompt for littles on her blog. Scribble Art is the first prompt and the linky for it will be open tommorow. If you want to try your little’s hand at this this would be a fun opportunity to do so.
The prompt is actually to create a scribble art and then cut out the images and add them to a painted background. I think this would result in very cool looking kid art. I might see if Cat wants to try this with her scribble art.
Either way I think a weekly art prompt for littles is a fantastic idea. If you’ve never visited blog before please check it out. There is lots of inspiration over there to be found.
