Karianne's Creations

The following creations were actually made by my daughter Karianne who is 3...   She made these for her Grandma and Great Grandma... The first is a layout... she picked the picture from a pile and because it was a Halloween picture I pulled out a Halloween kit... that is why everything coordinates... otherwise if I gave her free reign of the art room it would look like crazy.  

She picked the paper first of course it was the one with a scene... then she wanted to paint blue so I gave her the turquiose paint but told her that she couldnt paint over the tree or the monsters.... after the blue paint she wanted the colors of the owl she said so she got purple and black... After the paint we put the picture down and then added the flower stickers... she is really into grouping so that works great for scrapping... then she wanted the pumpkin sticker which had to sit next to the pumpkins in the picture... the jewels were next... they came in a strip but I thought we would cut them and let her place them randomly but no she said she wanted them to stay in a strip and they had to be by Pappa... then she added the buttons... I of course pulled out the letters to make the title but she placed them and then she wanted a bow so I tied her a bow  and she placed that too... She then asked for flowers from Mommy's purse... after a lot of confusion I figured out that she wanted the paper flowers that I keep in an organza bag... I picked the flowers and she picked out the color brads she wanted... I put the flowers together and she placed them around the layout.... told her I needed a sticker to write on so she picked out a journal sticker and some candy corn and added them too...  Anyhow to say the least I am very proud and think it looks great.... it just shows you how kits help so much!!!!!

The second project is a card... She picked the digital stamped and colored it... this time she had full rein in the art room so she picked paper, sequins, flower and ribbon she liked.  We glued it all together with her placing things where she wanted them...  We are going to enter her projects in the competition at Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Kona Kid Krafters...
