Hello Bee Arty Fans and welcome, it is my turn (Tracey Campbell) on the blog today and this time I thought I would have a bit of fun with some Colour Artist Inks, the Inspired Collection Watercolour Set and a few of the retired Shimmer Pots.
My youngest daughter picked the theme of "Scooby Doo" for her 10th Birthday this year, which was a bit of a challenge as there is not much Scooby themed party gear here in Australia.So what is a Mum to do?? Make it herself.
I started by joining two huge sheets of cardboard together and hand drawing the Mystery Inc Gang in the Mystery Van, leaving a head space to cut out above the steering wheel.
Next I used the Colour Artist Inks to paint the Mystery Van. I chose to use the Artist Inks for their vibrant colours and their ability to go a long way.
I varied the size of the paint brush depending on the detail of the van and just kept painting until it was all coloured in.
For the Mystery Gang and Scooby Doo I used either the Watercolour Inspired Collection set or the Shimmer Pots and just painted/coloured the details in.
Lastly I cut a hole above the steering wheel for Paige and her guests to pop their head through the photo prop and set it up at the party with the Instamax Camera beside it so that they could take their own photos. It was a huge hit with the kids and adults alike.
Below I thought I would share a few more of the photos from the party where we all had a great time and filled our bellies.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look, hopefully I have given you a bit of inspiration for your next party. :)
