KISS Linky Party #3: The Hunger Games

Welcome to the third Keep It Simple Saturday linky party! I had a post all planned out to share with you all, but after I saw what my daughter had been working on, I just had to brag on her!

She and I are going to the movies tonight to see The Hunger Games. We usually only go watch a movie when it comes out in the theater if it’s one we really, really want to see. I’m just going to say, “If you haven’t read the books, you need to. Now.” I was hesitant at first and only started reading the first one because Laina asked me to, but then I was hooked! Anyways, onto the KISS project.

Laina created a very simple Hunger Games themed t-shirt, using a black t-shirt from Wal-Mart, some fabric paints from the thrift store, and a stencil she created. She printed out the Mockingjay symbol from the internet, cut it out, glued it to a  piece of cardboard and taped it to the shirt.


Sorry, I took the pictures after she had finished, so I had to recreate it.


Then she just painted around it.  She used the bright colors to represent Katniss, “the girl on fire.”


Doesn’t it look like she created an explosion in the background?


I think she did a great job!


On to the highlights from last week! If I featured you this week or last, please grab the KISS featured button from my sidebar.

Dolly from Hibiscus House shared her memories of her Grandpa and simple life in the country.

Joann from Life at 2810 shared a project that incorporated only found items and stuff she had on hand. Can’t get much simpler than that!

And finally, Bliss from Bliss Ranch shared how a simple flower keeps memories of her mom alive.

**3/24 8:11pm~party is up and going! Since there was a problem with Linky tools server, this week’s party will go on until midnight on Tuesday!**

  1. The shirt turned out great, I had my daughter look at it and she gave it a two thumbs up. She went last night with a friend to the midnight opening show of Hunger Games. I know nothing about them, other than she said she liked the movie.
