This isn't totally my creation. But my co-artist doesn't mind my sharing.
I thought that maybe if I let Jack use the Crayola watercolor paints
and some watercolor paper that I didn't like,
that I could paint side by side with him.
It didn't work out that way. He's much too fast and demanding an artist.
I kept having to get clean water,
more paper towels.
The only watercolor I got to do was wiping up the splatters off the table
and the floor
and our clothes.
When he was finished, and I cut away some from the edges,
he had some really pretty colors.
A lesson in don't throw it away!
I cut some of one piece with my Elegant Bird die
and made an anniversary card for Jack's Mommy and Daddy.
I'm hoping that one day I can paint
and he'll clean up after me!
Do you think they'll kick this out of
It was made from a background.
A BIG background!
I'm so glad you could stop by.
