More Mixed Media: The Creation Story

This was lots of fun to make and put together as a collaborative family effort. I’m going to frame and mount this up in the children’s room.  🙂

I didn’t take photos of each stage, but here it is deconstructed, if you’re interested in the step-by-step process and want to make your own.  🙂

Day 1: God created light – white art block sheet.

Day 2: God separated the waters – Dark blue paint for body of water below, light blue paint and cotton wool for sky.

Day 3: God made the land and seas, and vegetation – Green coloured paper recycled from an old wrapper for land, craft foam and brown paper for trees, and puffy stickers for vegetation.

Day 4: God made the lights – craft foam sun, silver gel ink pen moon, colourful star stickers.

Day 5: God made the sea and sky creatures – fish and birds cut from Chinese New Year red packets, puffy stickers.

Day 6: God made the land creatures – puffy stickers. (I did not have anything to represent Adam and Eve for the moment, so have left that to later…)

Day 7: God rested.  Nothing added. 😉

      Hi Ruth, you’re welcome. Let me know if you try it with the kids, and how it goes. If you look closely, you’ll see a little bit of humour DD and DS have injected into the scene…the lion is opening his mouth to bite the flower, and the alligator is opening his mouth to bite the lion, and the hippo is looking on and grinning while the tiger looks shocked. Yes…they came up with that, I had nothing to do with it… 🙂
