Little Girl Craft Day


Hello everyone.  Today I'd like to show you a canvas I made that was inspired by one that Shari Carroll did for Simon Says Stamp.  I was looking for a Mother's Day project I could do with my nieces for their mother.  I did a quick sample for them and we spent 3 hours creating their projects.  My friend's daughter was with us as well and she created a canvas for her mother too.  

The girls were troopers and did everything I showed them.  They were given creative freedom on their projects.  I just taught them how to use some of the products.  They really loved the texture paste and stencil.  We all did.

Here are some pictures of Cara, Cortlynn and Sarah and their projects.  Great job girls.  







Here is a link to their blog.  Please drop by and give them some love.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day.

Great job on the canvas! I had started doing canvas work last year, but haven't been able to stick with it! You've inspired me to revisit this media. Thanks for playing in our neighborhood at 613 Avenue Create.
