Messy crafty goodness

 I've seen this online in several places, and my Aunt Barbie and her ilk have done this on occassion in their card making adventures. So V and I decided to see what all the fuss was about.
 We started with a cheap can of shaving cream, and filled a couple of cookie sheets. V made a few snowpeople and some sort of merengue.

Then we dripped food coloring, and used various utensils to swirl. We just used the basic food coloring in those cool little droppers, and plastic forks and spoons.
V had the red and orange, and I had the blue and green. Then we laid sheets of drawing paper over the top, and pulled them back to see what we had wrought.
 Then we scraped off the shaving cream, and enjoyed the magic we'd created. Again and again and again!  It was messy as hell, and fun, and V got a bath  afterwards and we lived happily ever after.
I'm sorry we don't have any pictures of the finished product, but you get the idea. And we had lots of fun.
