It has been a busy time at our house. The fourth graders are currently studying Washington State and one of their projects was to create a 3-D project for their Museum Night at school. Trina dressed as a missionary and created a one-room mission school as she studied and shared information regarding the Whitmans.
Diligently working on this project for days brought about this gorgeous little scene below. I have to tell you that it is so fulfilling to let her use my crafting supplies when she works on her projects. With just a few tips, she then rushes in head-on.
Following are just some of the supplies she used to create this little school:
- Studio paint was used on the styrofoam,
- Distress Ink aged the popsicle stick siding and wood veneer door - the door then had a little hitch fastener doorknob - it was oh so cute :-D
- Memory Frame and Memory Glass windows,
- Embossing folder and Distress Crackle paint on Craft-a-board made the roof,
- Crackle Accents made a glorious stream.
What fun it was to watch her all dressed up, giving her speech in which she ended up showing everyone how if you could peek through the windows into the schoolroom, you would find a surprise inside. I was SO very bummed when I realized that I had left the memory card firmly planted here in the computer as I carried my camera around that night. Can you tell I'm a very proud Mom? LOL!
The message tonight is to share some of your supplies with your kids and grandkids and let them create to their hearts content. It really is magical!
ETA: I just finished posting one more set of directions for a hybrid card I created over on In Touch :D
