simple salt painting

His laughter... sparkled like a splash of water in sunlight.
-- Joseph Lelyveld
This little boy... a constant source of fun and laughs, even when he isnt meaning to...I clicked this one this week, in a mini shoot cos he loved his new hat. Hes trying to read the inside of the brim :)

Sometimes its the simplest of activities that interest my kids the most....
And todays was all done by Jumeirah, the plan, the process, the result... I just stood back and took photos :)
She'd found black cardstock and asked to do a night picture. Her idea was to use salt to create a cool night looking picture.

So I gave her glue, salt and complete freedom to create as she wanted to.
She painted first, painting a cat through a fence under a starry sky. After salting the picture ( very completely salting the picture, bench and most of the floor) we shook of the excess and admired a really cool, textured creation :)

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best :)
Happy weekend!!
