Painting daffodils.

This post is a little snapshot of Faith painting daffodils using an egg carton for a 3D effect.

Faith loves daffodils, they have always been her favourite flower. I think it’s because they are always everywhere in the spring and she likes to pick one whenever we are out and bring it home to look at. She always puts it in a glass of water and she will sit and talk with it, it is very sweet.

Anyway, when we decided to paint a picture of a flower it had to be a daffodil.
We were inspired by the following tip from Center Parcs’ Creative Crafter, Emma Hull.
•    Find materials around the house to add to the painting, giving it a 3D effect. Why not paint an old bottle cap and stick it in the centre of a flower, really bringing your painting to life?

We used the bottom of an egg box to make the 3D effect of the centre of the daffodils.

This is my entry to the Center Parcs and Tots 100 March challenge. If I’m chosen, I would like to visit Elveden Forest.
