Art love...

Both our girls love their art...they love drawing and painting. I love watching their art evolve as they grow. Madi as a young toddler couldn't even stand a drop of paint on her fingers, now she wants to paint her entire hand!! We have STACKS of art work...I can't bring myself to 'thin' the pile so every bit that comes home from kindy is kept as is the bits created at home. I love to include some of it into the PL albums as it is all part of the story. This art work below was done on gold tissue paper- so cute! We got given a huge pile of it.. what a perfect 'canvas'...

Jots January Moodboard

And it's January 2016 just like that. And first blog of the year..inspired by another fantastic Jot Mood Board. I love mood boards..I love how they often challenge me to use colours I don't normally use. How stunning are these colours together!?! I've had the 4x4 Heidi Swapp PL cards sitting on my desk for a while waiting for that perfect moment...and here it is!Thanks again Jot girls!
