Emma Loves this bubble painting technique! She will make bubble paintings every day if she could!
The other day I was looking at all the printing that was going on and thought that these bubble prints actually look a lot like Hydrangeas, which happens to be very convenient as I love these flowers!!
So, yes, you guessed it… we made bubble blowing painted Hydrangeas!
I filled jam jars with paint (pink and purple) and dish washing liquid – a big squirt of paint to a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid. My paint (normal kids paint) is quite runny, but if you are using acrylics or something a little more thick, then add a drop of water!
We used jam jars because I wanted to do this a little smaller than we usual would – we would usually use a bigger bowl to blow bubbles in! I wanted to have lots of flowers on one page at the end – and therefore jam jars are the perfect size to make little Hydrangeas!
And then we got blowing!!
Once the bubbles come over the top, you just ‘print’ very quickly with a piece of paper by pressing it down onto the bubbles. If your colors are not showing up bright then add some more paint!
We made tons!!
Once they were dry I shadow cut them out, we cut very simple green leaves and we stuck it all together!
Each flower got a leaf or two (underneath.)
And WOW! We are both so happy with the result!
This really is the prettiest flower craft we have done!
AMAZING for mother’s day cards!!
