Craft Day with Granddaughter! Part 1

I had my eldest granddaughter for the Day today, and quote from her "I like coming here - you are fun".  This first part is our Paint Fusion session.

This was my main project today - a clock.  Ellie has "bagged" it as a Christmas present from me for her bedroom!   The background and the rim are painted with metallic acrylic paint.

Ellie came armed with this little box to paint and a coaster.   This is her first attempt at a rose.   She didn't want to try a free-hand "Stephanie Weightman one, so she stamped the open rose from Sheena Douglass, and then I persuaded her to have a bash at doing the centre.   Result - she can now paint roses.  Didn't she do well - she is only 9!  I then helped her edge the box with a gold pen.

Inside of the box, which I confess I painted for her with a little freehand rose and leaves.

This was her first project today - a little coaster in metallic acrylic paint.  It's actually more purple and silver in real life.

I had bought this pencil box from Crafty Crocs for her to paint.  Having mastered the rose on her little box, she then did the Daisy and the two roses on the side of her box.  No doubt another day will see her doing more on the other sides.

Ellie preparing the paint ready to do the roses.

and finally in this part - my second project - work in progess.  This side is metallic blue, and the reverse metallic green.   I shall probably add some Ivy to this side when my new stamps arrive.   Haven't decided yet what to paint on the reverse.   Daisies. Roses or Clematis - decisions, decisions!

All in all a FAB day - and if you want to know where we purchased the bits to paint - google Crafty Crocodiles.
