We love sparklers for the 4th festivities!
So, what better chalk pastel picture could we do this week than sparklers?
We love the pastel tutorials at Hodgepodge. They are so easy to follow, that even my 7-year old can turn out a successful picture, and yet so interesting that my 19-year old (and myself, for that matter) can enjoy them. (There are so many to choose from, too!)
The sparkler pictures are done on black paper, which shows off all the bright colors of the chalks.

The tutorials are just enough instruction to make you feel confident, but not so much as to take away individuality. See how different our pictures turned out?
Happy Independence Day!
