Art Project Repost

I posted this project almost two years ago, and I still get an occasional comment on it. I will consider doing a tutorial if there is interest. Just leave a comment if you are so that I know whether it is worth my while. :)

One of the things I miss about not being home all the time is spending time doing creative projects. While visiting at a homeschooling friend's home in Florida, Tessa and I both took time to create with the *best*! If you want to be inspired and encouraged to live creatively, you must visit these folks.


First, I raided their dress-up stuff.
Then I took some photos!

Then Melanie walked me through the steps to create my masterpiece!

The photo captured Tessa's love for entering the world of imagination through books. The canvas looks great in my kitchen and is a reminder of this incredible stage of childhood and an unforgettable visit with friends.

Well, I know it would certainly be worth MY while if you made a tutorial for the canvas picture. I can just envision my grandchildren looking fabulous in one of these pictures.
thanks!
