    I think I'm even more addicted to pinterest than I am magazines. I'll never live long enough to try all the lesson ideas I've pinned. I find it's making me a better teacher though. My kids are getting exposed to lots cooler stuff than I could ever come up with on my own.

    love all your pins! thanks

    What is the technique used to do this? I'd love a step by step layout so I can recreate this with my students.

    I've done something like this. I think they did watercolor flowers on paper, let dry, then drew in the shapes of the petals with white glue, which dries clear. The way I did it was the reverse: glue outlines, let dry, then watercolor or chalk pastels in between the 3-d lines. You can also color the glue with tempera paint, to make darker outlines.

    I also did this project. kids used warm colors for the flowers and cool colors for the background.
