  6. I thought the shadow puppets were divine. I love the bow tie on the little cat. I know this is a project my boys would have lots of fun with.

    There are so many projects listed. I never knew. Very clever.

  8. I really really want to win your giveaway this time!! But how can I possibly choose only one of all those amazing craft activities?! If you really really push me for one it's have to be the rabbit puppet (it covers so many activities with nice breaks in between for drying etc), but runners up are fabric collage, alphabet poster and paint textures!
    Thank you for this. K

  13. Wow!! Another cool giveaway!! Can I say I love all the projects, but the one that stood out for me is the paint texture-cool effect, the black and one.

  14. I love the watercolor resist project. It is a great way to use a child's own masterpiece to launch a lifetime of art appreciation-including museum trips to visit similar masterpieces!

  21. This is an amazing giveaway!
    My favorite project is the animal portraits.
    Children and animals, what could be more natural.
    I love how it asks "what if"?

  23. Yay! I love the Eric Carle creation of course, I have a book that shows how he does his, and it's the same idea but using coloured paint and tissue paper and letting it dry. It would be fun to try sometime!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love the paint textures one! Gonna try it with my 8 YO this weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What an amazing and generous giveaway!
    This is a tough one... That is a lot of really incredible projects! I think my favorite is the fabric collage, but I also very much like the concept of the Extended Landscape project and I love the shadowbox cut out painting.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I LOVE project no 15 - printing of the book cover. being a keen letterpress adventurer my daugther loved creating her own print/covers.

    ReplyDelete
  27. All great projects, v.v. hard to choose just one. Bug is brilliant and scribble garden is scrummy. I choose the plaster relief project because it is perfect for me to do with children who have special needs.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow, difficult to choose, but I choose: the plaster relief project. Nice to combine forms, and exciting to see the effect!

    ReplyDelete
  29. My most favorite is the Eric Carle paint texture collage. He is one of my favorite children's book authors, and the project is great becaues it can be adapted to fit any skill level.

    ReplyDelete
  30. So many projects to choose from, we've already done the watercolor resist, we love the styrofoam printing and the plexiglass monoprinting, but I think because I am sewing lately and have many scraps that the fabric collage is our current favorite! Thanks for the projects btw.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Definitely an amazing giveaway! All the projects are so good. I'd probably choose a different favorite everytime I look through them, but today I'm really liking #26 Frame art...I like the way you find ideas that stretch the boundaries of what would normally be expected.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The Alphabet Poster, definitely!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks for the giveaway. We love the kids crafts. We've made the watercolor flowers and the scribble garden and they are framed and hanging in our house! My personal favourite is the fabric collage but can't seem to get the kids to love fabric as much as I do.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love the shadow puppets - but I also love the fabric collage. Great use of scraps!

  35. Arounna, this is an amazing give-away!! Thank you for sharing such a special part of you... here and with all of your craft projects. I don't even have to go peek... I already know which is my favorite. I loved them all, especially the alphabet and watercolor flowers, but the rabbit puppet reminds me of one my mother made for me when I was little ( a chicken in the same style). Hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the sun (at least on Saturday).

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love the paper flowers (#4). I hope there's a publisher out there with the foresight to have you compiling these wonderful projects for a book, Arounna.

  37. This is a wonderful giveaway!

    So many gorgeous projects - it's hard to choose just one.. I do love project #25 - Stencil shapes on wood veneer.

    ReplyDelete
  38. OHHH your giveaways are terrific!! Hope I'll have lucky this time :D
    It's so hard to chose only one project... but I must said rabbit puppet, alphabet poster, paper flowers... so many!!!
    (^v^)

  39. The alphabet poster is definitely my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Project #11 - Alphabet Poster is my favourite!

    ReplyDelete
  41. The styrofoam plaster cast is great - styrofoam gets my boys imagination working anyway, but to create something completely new out of it is thrilling - love it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. what a fantastic giveaway!

    my favourite was the Alphabet poster - simple yet beautiful and frameable.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you for the giveaway and sharing these ideas with us! I loved the alphabet poster but since I have so many fabric scraps, I have to pick the fabric collage.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Although I was drawn to many of the projects I think the wood veneer collage was stellar - now to tackle finding a source of wood veneer scraps.

    ReplyDelete
  45. #29 puppet is my favoite. Most of the materials you can find around the house and puppets are fun. I just stumbled on your site, but it is now under my favorites. Yeah! I am excited about your giveaway. I love printmaking, but I have never printed on fabric. Happy summer.

  46. Project # 24 Paint Textures inspired by Eric Carle. I actually stumbled upon this site last year (which is how I came across your blog) and used this idea with a class of 11/12 year olds. The results were beautiful. Thanks for sharing such good ideas and not just keeping them to yourself :) Hopefully this photo link will work: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=60990&id=528234202&l=afa654b301

  47. I love the kinetic drawing bug!

  48. it might just be a tie between the hairbuttons and the pattern print book cover. i thank you for pointing me back to these projects, because i've found new inspiration again! my youngest daughter is growing her hair longer and it always seems to be landing in her icecream! these hairbuttons will be sure to entice her into pulling it back a bit more. my older daughter just got black moleskines for her school notebooks and the print would look so great on them! thank you so much for sharing such great projects.

  49. My pick is the shadow boxes and my reasons are long but here's a link to the reason why?

  52. It may be too late for the giveaway, I'm in California, but I recently saw a few puppet shows that were wonderful, so I'd say the shadow puppets were the best.
