Party time!

Busy, busy day. This morning I did a workshop for adults using Marvy Markers on rubber stamps. They liked it! I know becasue they all went off to buy Marvy Markers! And then this afternoon I did a craft party for a lovely little girl who is about to turn 9. SHe wanted to do some painting and so we did. This was my sample:

And this is what 12 little girls managed to produce in 1 1/2 hours:

Amazing aren't they? I love working with children (which is why I'm a teacher I guess LOL!) because they don't think TOO much, they just get on with it without worrying about whether the colour is right etc etc. And yet, they have very precise ideas about what they do and don't want. Have you ever tried encouraging a 9 year old to add glitter when they don't want any glitter?!!
By the way, all images came from Lisa's Altered Art . I've been using images from here for ages but these are the new Zetti style images and were just perfect for this occasion.
Bye for now
