Art on the Road – Painting Rocks

I am never quite sure what to bring for art supplies when travelling so we can do art on the road.  I always feel like I am going to forget the one thing I really need.  For this trip out to the East coast I decided to keep it simple and just bring my Faber Castell Pitt Pens, my paint markers and pastels (and my art journals of course).

All of the girls are a little obsessed with collecting rocks so when I asked them to find me some flat oval rocks for a project, they were happy to oblige.

Rock collecting on Kouchibouguac Beach.  Such a gorgeous place.  Isn’t Amelia’s bathing suit adorable?

 The beautiful specimens they found and all are flat and smooth.  Well done girls!

We used a mixture of different paint pens and they all worked pretty great actually.

I just told the girls I wanted them to be inspiring (so I can scatter then all over our Beyoutiful Souls retreats) and off they went.  Even Amelia wanted in on the action.

 This is our first batch of lovelies.  The girls had so much fun with this project they just wanted to keep making more.

I am so glad it went as well as it did but I am a little concerned about the amount of rocks we are going to end up with by the end of this trip :)

    I can’t go anywhere without coming back armed with rocks. Ask my husband… he’s usually the one carrying them all :) Great post, as usual!
