As you know, I enjoy crafting from my backyard patio table, looking out on vibrant spring blossoms. First came the Magnolias, then the Cherry trees, finally the Peony’s and even a few first roses are blooming, inspiring me and the little ones to celebrate May Flowers and encourage discovery through Floral painting, crafting, and science experiments.
To learn new techniques for painting flowers that you find in your own garden and on nature walks, check out My Flower Journal, a blog that celebrates flowers and offers instruction for splatter paint projects you can enjoy with kids of all ages.
