day twenty two - august boredom busting

Day twenty two brings another creative challenge. Today's activity is to make paint from nature. You can use all kinds of natural materials to make your own paint - flowers, leaves, berries. 

This article has some great ideas for things you can use to make different colours. Like for instance, did you know that you can use spinach to make green paint. Or ginger to make yellow. You can even try using flowers to make gentle watercolour paints. 

P.S. If you fancy sharing your paintings made from nature over on instagram or facebook use the hashtag #augustboredombusting. I'd love to see!
