Family Tradition: Thursday, February 27 DECOUPAGE with Liz and Janie
"And my great gran gran gran grandma make it and paint it." -Janie
Liz brought two beautifully decorated boxes that had been painted by Janie's great grandma. "It looks like it's been painted on," Liz said as she pointed out the masterful decoupage work on the wooden box. Small pieces of paper were carefully cut and glued onto the box and then painted over with ModgePodge to seal and smooth the delicate pieces of paper. After Liz shared the children had a turn to try their own hand at decoupage.

"Oh WOW!" -Violet
Violet carefully worked with the glue at the message center. As glue was applied, Violet was guided to think about how she was using the glue. The result was more intentionally layered message. She was happy and proud.
