On this weeks episode of let's try something new, we played with (can you guess it?) CHALK!
Now this was in no way an easy set up, but I trusted what Pintrest said that I could do.
*On a side note, there have been a lot of times where Pinterst has failed me
Now, I have some experience when it comes to drawing with chalk so I know the ins and outs about drawing over rough grounds. I did learn that if you dip your chalk in water before you draw your image not only comes out darker, but it also lasts longer.
The actual set up for the pictures took about 45 mins + the time that it took to rake the leaves with a mop head (the broom was no where to be found). Once the balloons were drawn and colored in, I drew my city scape and my clouds.
I was extremely pleased and surprised at how much V was into doing this photo shoot. She took direction like a champ; normally when I say look one way she looks another, but not during this shoot. She was so animated and excited, I think the fact that she got to use her imagination and pretend to grab the balloons also helped.
I love the way that these pictures turned out and I think that chalk drawings can be used with so many different ideas!
