Tissue Paper Collage

Tissue Paper Collage

I have a child who rarely smiles for the camera and doesn't seem to appreciate a mom who wants to document everything (she'll thank me when she's older, right?). When bribed with something along the lines of cupcakes, I may have some luck, but I usually hear comments like "put your phone down! and Mommy, no pictures! Make art with me!" Sooo, when I snapped this picture at the end of a recent art moment, I thought to myself, "hey, we must have hit art project gold here!" In hindsight, I think she was wowed by the idea of camouflage (more on that later), but why not start a blog post with a smiling kid, right?
