My son loves to draw, colour and paint. If he has paper and a writing tool, he'll be occupied for hours! Of course, he spends a lot of time with me in the craft room, too. A while back, he was watching me heat emboss and watercolour, and begged to use my Gansai paints. I hesitated for the longest time. They're my precious Gansai paints! I finally relented and he had the best time.
He picked the images to create the scene and I helped him stamp them with black Archival ink on Fabriano watercolour paper. This paper is so thick and luscious, fabulous for one-layer cards! After watercolouring, he asked if he could use my Wink of Stella marker on the clouds and squirrel. I thought letting him use my Gansai paints was luxurious enough. My Wink of Stella marker?! Ack!
So that's today's squirrelly share. ;)
