Yikes! I almost forgot to share M's Heart Sampler. When she saw me making the "sample" for Mrs. Z's art auction project, she wanted to make a sample of the art auction project for her class.
I had many bright colors out for my fish and that suited Miss M perfectly. But first I helped her use a ruler and mark off rectangles for her background. Then the paints came out and she made a valiant attempt at keeping her rectangles even.
She painted 2-3 coats and then started on her hearts after the background dried.
She put on her "art" glasses and explained how they helped her paint.
She picked out her own colors and placement and combined some plain craft acrylics with a few metallic colors. Not too shabby for a five year old!
It turned out pretty fabulous and now has a place of honor in our living room. It makes me smile every time I look at it.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
