I'm always looking for fun items for Alexa to use in collages. When a friend if my gave me an bag of beans I knew that with a little color they would be perfect.
1. Find a bag of white dried beans
2. Divide beans and place theme in individual zip-lock bags. I used four.
3. You can use food coloring with a bit of rubbing alcohol but I chose to use my favorite liquid watercolor because the color always comes out much brighter
(I purchased it from Discount School Supply).
Place a small amount of watercolor in the bag and shake.
Place on cookie sheet to dry.
Don't you love these gorgeous colors?
Do you have a favorite collage material? I would love to hear about it, so please leave me a comment below.
Until next time,
