Taught my mini me granddaughter to make ATCs this weekend. We used playing cards, paint, stamps, Mod Podge, and a baby Godfather meme.

Behold the results:

Too much fun I say.

Where the Mysterious Drawing Went to Live

 I finally bit the bullet and ripped the mysterious drawing from the Hemingway Book. It went to live in my junk journal on the Mermaid Page.

I love it.

Monkey See Monkey Do or How I Trained my Grandkids to Art

I apologize ahead of time for the quality of these pictures. I need a new camera (hint hint).

The past couple of weeks I have had the pleasure to teach my Granddaughters the fine art of mixed media journaling. They picked it up really quickly although they all had different learning styles. The youngest watched me and copied my movements like a pro. Gramma is so proud. I even convinced them it is okay to be a little weird.

I am making an art kit to take with me when I babysit Gabe's girls later this month. We made the girls each a journal when they spent the night this week. FUN FUN!!!
