PJ's Fun Week 2 - Patriotism

Good morning friends! This week on PJ's Fun our theme is Patriotism. Here our themes are not very strict though, so by patriotism you can make something patriotic or just something with stripes, or stars, or red, white, & blue, or anything else that comes to mind. I made a patriotic card with stripes, stars, & red, white, & blue. I found this image I received in a swap last year and thought now was the perfect time to use it. I colored him with Copics, used my Nestabilities to cut him and his mounting paper out, put Martha Stewart glitter on his fireworks, and used an old Creative Memories mini punch to cut out the stars. Mr. Pig is raised up to give the card some depth.
Friday evening the boys played with some watercolor paints and Joey was quite excited about joining in on this week's challenge. First he painted a flag. When it dried he added some star stickers. Next he painted the United States of America in red, white, & blue. I was pretty impressed with his USA since he did it from memory, not from a picture. He added one small light blue star to the middle of the white part.


I hope you get to play along this week! I've got a couple more ideas of projects to make. I'll be sharing all of your projects throughout the week as I receive them. The deadline to get them in is Friday evening. The new week of fun will start each Saturday morning (hopefully). Have a great Saturday!
