To my dear readers - I apologize for not posting yesterday, but I do have a good reason - I had company. :D
My niece Sydney joined us on Tuesday night for a sleepover, and we spent the WHOLE day yesterday making fun art projects! I've discovered a very fun equation: old Real Simple magazines + a creative little girl = a super fun day!
Gorgeous, yes? It's a vessel made with a blown-up balloon and rolled-up magazine pages. But when we realized how long it would take to not only roll up the pages but glue them on to the balloon, we both kind of scrapped the idea. But I saved our work for another day!
Instead of using Sydney as my guinea pig, I decided to go with what I know and what would be fun for her. And was it ever FUN!
pendants. So I thought we could make one together! Here's the cool part - Sydney made her pendant all on her own. Really, the only things I helped her with were the gluing and rub-on transfer. She picked out all of the magazine scraps herself and the composition of the pieces was also entirely her own creation. I'd say she definitely has an eye for color - and like most 8 year-olds, it's all about the pink. :D
And here's Sydney modeling her creation - doesn't she look FAB?
