Plans for the Future

This is short and sweet today....I've been grand-babysitting most of it.
Here's an amazing kid friendly painting project using bubble wrap and rubber stamps.  Details below.

This project re-purposes bubble wrap in a way that you may not think of.   I kind of relate that to our existence.   God has plans and purposes for us of which we would never dream. He says, "Call unto me and I will answer thee and shew thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not" (Jeremiah 33:3) He would paint our world in technicolor if we would only let him lead.

Aren't you curious about the picture he wants to paint with you?  How he molds us and shapes will be ongoing until we reach that glorious moment of promise.

Trust him today for your future!

Art Instructions:  
Supplies:   Bubble wrap              Paint in bright colors(Washable poster paint or liquid acrylic)
                large shape rubber stamps.  My stamps were the inexpensive foam backed type
                Heavy paper or canvas  (I used very cheap paper for the demo  above)

Cut bubble wrap into desired shape.  We did squares.

Puddle the paint on a surface large enough to accommodate the rubber stamp (we used foam paper plates).

Lightly press the bubble wrap squares into the paint.  Then  press it onto paper.
Repeat this process with different colors.  Don't worry if a few bubbles don't make an impression

When the background has dried, you are ready for the rubber stamp.

Lightly press stamp into an opposite color, or contrasting color, then press over the dotted squares.

Once all paint is dry you can draw an outline around the squares if desired.  These looked very nice when mounted on a piece of black construction paper.
