They have been a blessing and really a lot of fun to have here to play with, and really keep me on my toes figuring out how to keep them busy. I have become quite proficient with Pinterest searches and have managed to find even more You Tube videos than imaginable.
As I mentioned in my last post, the girls wanted to draw, and paint faces.....just like Kristin's SOC video.
Their results were really amazing for their ages....who has the passion for faces????????
Now Rachel did just as well.......
But after the last face, she wanted to know if she HAD to draw faces........"no, Rachel you can do what you want to do". She immediately picked up a thin Sharpie and started doodling designs, and after watching her for a few moments I dug out my Zentangle journal and let her look through it. THIS is what she wanted to learn to do. I have some patterns from Erin of The Bright Owl blog, I copied them and let Rachel go at it. This kid is really GOOD at tangles ....then I introduced Dangles to her.....Oh my!! Now that little "stink" got away, with all her designs before I could get a picture of any of them, because she was still working on them when Mom came to pick her up.......LOL
Passions are a funny thing....just because your good at something doesn't mean you have a passion for it.
So I have been on this PC ALL day, getting patterns for Rachel to tangle, and tangle patterns for her to learn to do. I have them all in a journal (she requested) ready for her on Next Monday, even her little 5 year old sister wanted a journal too......her's has blank pages, cause she wanted one like mine....LOL
Now research for Hannah was a little tougher.....and much longer. I KNEW where to find what I needed for Rachel. I did get things printed off for Hannah......like position of facial features on the head, how to draw an eye and things like that. She also wants a journal, but wants to learn how to make one....like I made, sometime back, out of a large 9" x 12" envelope.
Thanks for taking the time to see what else the girls have been up to.......I have flooded my T-day posts with photos of the crafty things they have made, but I felt these faces and finding one's passion deserved a special post.
Please leave the girls a comment.....this has been FOR them!
