We had our "Sunshine" from Friday to Sunday. Yes, the natural sunshine as well as what we call our little granddaughter. If I forget and call her by her real name, she wants to know why did I stop calling her "Sunshine". She had a list of things that she wanted to do and of course one of them was to do "art" in grandma's office. How many of you have Ken Oliver's Color Burst in your crafting space? I've seen and read a lot about this product but didn't commit to buying it until last week. I thought I would start with three basic colors to see if it would be something I would be interested in. Sprinkle and spritz! Color Burst is an amazing concentrated microfine watercolor powder that lets you create beautiful watercolor techniques. Spritz your project with water and sprinkle on Color Burst to create amazing designs. Sprinkle Color Burst on dry paper and then spritz with water for a completely different look. Dissolve in water and spray from a mister bottle to create your own custom mists... and more. It was a surprise to receive an order just in time for the "Sunshine's visit. I let her play around with the three bottles I had received. All of these projects will be added to SOC Blogger Challenge #11 @ http://www.scrapsofcolor.ning.com.
|Her next project was stamping images and then coloring them. She wanted to know why the dolls didn't have eyes and mouths. I told her she could draw some in if she wanted to. She did very good with stamping her images. On the bottom right and left, she wanted some more of the Color Burst.|
(Mrs. Ella Jackson, she was very happy to know that you saw her first picture and the lovely comment you gave her at church. We hope you see these...leave us a comment below).
