2 in one day????

As promised, my fun art project is featured on Fun in Jerusalem!

Here is the tutorial again!

What you need:

coloured tissue paper (available in Jerusalem at craft stores, or Office Depot – I bought mine at Hakol Lapnai, on Pierre Koenig, for 14.90 NIS

water (open the faucet)

a paintbrush

white construction paper or poster board

What to do:

1.      Tear or cut shapes out of different coloured tissue paper.


2.      Place a piece of tissue paper onto the white paper. With your paintbrush, carefully “paint” over the entire piece of tissue paper so that it sticks to the paper


3.      Repeat until you are happy with your picture.


4.      Leave to dry.


5.      A few hours later, carefully remove all the tissue paper.


And presto! A beautiful masterpiece! Hang up in a place of honor!

And that, my friends, is my beautiful 4 and a half year old… who insists that we make a half birthday cake for him and a half birthday cake for his 2.5 year old sister… half blue, half red…. bless his sweet soul…
