If you're a tween and you've found 12:34, you're looking for something a little different than what many kid craft sites have to offer; toilet paper roll crafts might not seem as cool as they once did and perhaps you're looking to try your hand at something with a little more style. At 12:34, we hope to bridge the gap between projects for little kids and projects geared towards teenagers and adults. We try our hand at art, crafting, stamping - if we think it's cool - we'll try it. Thanks for dropping by! N&K

Week 2: Trees

It's all about trees this week. Breaking out of the standard tree design most of us have and playing with some new options. We've been searching Kia's storybooks for ideas and found them to be a great source for tree ideas. Trees with leaves, pine trees, bare branches, swirly trees, trees blowing in the wind, snow covered, and wondrous leaves...it's all our focus for the week.


Sketch as many different trees as you can! Try new shapes and don't worry about mistakes. That's what your sketchbook is for!

Paint or color some of your favorite tree designs.

Try a tree collage using patterned paper, newspapers, or magazines cut up. This could be a fun project for a canvas. More to come on this idea throughout the week. For now just practice your sketching and so some paintings.
