"Unfold" for Illustration Friday

For Illustration Friday this week, the kids made some mirror image paintings. They painted half an image on a sheet of paper, folded the page, pressed it down, unfolded the page, and discovered how chance saw fit to complete the image.

Here are some faces by Isaac (age10):







And some crazy creatures by Gracie (age 8):







And finally some lovely butterflies by Lily (age 6):
