Colouring in has become an adult pastime - it's even found its way into our house, with Hannah enjoying the odd half hour quietly decorating her colouring book. She was hunting around for colouring pencils, watercolour pencils and textas when I remembered this tip from the Cheapskates Tip Store.
Problem solved! Between us we had few different eye, lip and cheek compacts we weren't using. Now they're being put to use and a brush and water over powder eye shadows makes beautiful water colours.
Art Sets from Old Make-up SetsI used to use old make-up sets for drawing as a kid. Shading areas is a lot easier with eye shadow than it is with pencil shavings, although you use a bit more. However, if you can't use it as makeup, it's no loss really.
