I can’t believe it is 4 weeks already. I am also surprised my daughter is still doing it, though admittedly with varying shades of energy! It has become something of a routine however after school. Afternoon tea, index card, homework. On the days we don’t have afterschool activities anyway.
Having seen her card featured over here, she is feeling the joy of being a famous artist, which I think has also inspired her to keep going. She actually asked me today while she was doing her card what I thought her fans might want to see her do. I suggested she keep painting what is in her heart and her fans would be most satisfied!?! (Also God forbid the diva she will be if she ever does become famous!!!) As it happens I think my rainbow girl is made of rainbows at the moment. They are appearing on everything!
Here are our cards for this week.
I was working with textures and shades of white and my girl child was busy cutting up magazines on her search for colour and pattern.
I was seeing pink, and Victoria was cutting up old work to fit onto an index card…a sparkly symbol of who she is.
I grabbed a handful of scraps from my table, while Victoria traced an image from her Christmas Activity Book that she has been working through for the past week, as well as doing her index cards!
I created some luminous paper and did some paper weaving (the tutorial for the next two cards of mine was featured over at Tammy’s site here!! Here is my squealing excitable joy at being a famous artist! :D It is also clear the apple did not fall far from this tree.), and Victoria played with the neocolor IIs as she made another rainbow (she also found the missing red neocolor I, the red strip that did not dissolve!). :)
Here is my other paper weaving card featured in the tutorial above, and Victoria was still seeing rainbows.
I had some scraps from trimming the paper weaving cards which I used up on this card, and Victoria received some embellishments in the mails from a close family friend and decided some of the flowers would be perfect on an index card.
I was playing with a leaf pattern, (with potential for it to be a feather), and Victoria did…..a rainbow (I know shock of the century!!) :D She also did her and I on either side of the rainbow. She was mixing up the colours for our eyes for a good 10 minutes trying to get it exactly right. Adding a bit more colour and then looking into my eyes and comparing it. Very focussed!
May you all have a bright week filled with rainbow magic! :)
