Kat created these pieces from salt dough back in February half term then painted them with acrylics over the Easter break. You have got to love a bit of salt dough haven't you!?!

The ornamental cherry tree in our garden has started blossoming this week, which inspired us to get crafting. We love creating mixed media pictures; this one uses popcorn as cherry blossom, cotton wool as clouds and we also used crystals and stickers as decorations. Jess practiced her scissor skills, we used her handprint as the tree (would you believe that I've run out of brown paper?!) and she chose to paint the popcorn pink. I love it!

Jessica has turned her hand to decoupage this week. She cut up lots of squares of decorative tissue paper while I was busy doing the washing up then I helped her to stick them all onto the mache cat that we'd bought in one of our many visits to Hobbycraft. We use a mixture of water and PVA glue as an adhesive. She was more than capable of doing most of it independently but I helped with the tricky areas like the tail. Jess chose blue crystals for the eyes and once completely dry I will cover the whole cat in an acrylic varnish to finish her project.
