Painting on rocks!!

Standard

Hi Friends,

Today’s topic may not be new to everyone, but I really enjoy doing it..:) Painting on rocks can be done with no expense and  a fun craft for kids too.  I would say go grab some Washable markers/sharpie from a dollar store or a nearby stationery and keep them handy.

I found mine @ http://www.dollartree.com/Washable-Broadline-Markers-10-ct-Packs/p310837/index.pro?method=search

Don’t you think it is cute & beautiful??

While browsing Pinterest I found amazing stuff, some are cute, some are funny and some intricate. For this craft all you need is a set of markers and pebbles/stones and if you stay close to beach you are blessed..:)

I am still blessed because I live in a place where temperatures are triple-digit desert extremes…;)  My front yard landscaping is pebbles and it wasn’t hard for me to make and watch on how these life less pebbles/rocks turned out beautiful. However, in my next visit to beach I am going to carry back a ton of them..;)

I made the Owl painting with a little motivational quote and use it as paper weight. I can’t say how unique it is.

I also painted fish and sticked a piece of magnet(from Home Depot)  and made 2 little fridge magnets..:)

You can help your toddler write a message for special occasions/draw  and stick a magnet.  That way you can save it forever and enjoy watching everyday.  The options are endless and hope you enjoy painting on rocks as much I do and if possible share your creations…:)

Happy Crafting!!

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
