Play Date

I had a play date with my little niece last week and we had so much fun! I had been telling her about all the creative things we had been doing in my stencil class and she was dying to try them out herself. We made a beautiful mess with fabric spray inks, stencils, Mod Podge, glitter glue, stickers, magazine cutouts....

Look how focused she is!

Our supplies.

Some of her artwork.

We used fabric spray dye because I didn't have a mask for her and I wasn't going to expose her to the toxic fumes in regular spray paint. I couldn't find traditional spray inks locally but these spray dyes worked very well as a substitute. The paper does buckle more with these paints and you also have to blot the paper with paper towels so they don't run together or smear. (unless that's the effect you're looking for)


  1. How exciting! You two had fun!


  2. Oh come on! What child doesn't need to be exposed to a little bit of toxic fumes? lol

    It looks like you two had a great time! I really like the way the fabric ink laid down on the paper.

  3. what a fabulous play date!! Great idea to use the fabric spray dye too.
