last week was busy busy! i started my after school mixed media class with some kids at pezza's school - CRAZINESS and MESS! i am having them work on three boards over the course of 6 weeks. we have 2 kindergartners, 2 first graders, 2 third graders and 1 fifth grader - 3 are boys and the rest girls plus pezza. thank goodness we are having class in the art room BUT the art teacher was LESS than thrilled about us being in her space so i try very hard to make sure we leave no sign of ourselves after class! if the class goes well i may do more.
we also had pezza's birthday party this weekend and i took her to the melting pot for dessert as her birthday treat. melting pot did not impress me as much as i felt like it would - too much sweet i think! i am not a huge chocolate person so that was my first problem BUT pez loved it and had lots of fun and it was a good mommy daughter outing. then we had family and a few friends over for cake this weekend - of course i made her cake:
now onto my projects for today - yep i have TWO!
we kick off a new challenge today on the mix it up group on Color Me Creative - we are using circles! in addition i am entering this one in the Diva Zentangle challenge to do something mickey mouse/disney related.
twinkling H2Os to add some color and my charcoal pencil to add some shading. i like doing the zentangles while i wait for pezza in gymnastics class - easily portable! don't the twinks sparkle divinely?!?!?
this challenge pezza joined in too:
isn't it adorable! she came up with this completely on her own! we are going to use this for the front of her thank you cards :)
luminarte primary elements. then she used some of her new fluorescent acrylic paints to paint the flowers on. this is so HER! in fact i may have to get some things made with this one over on Original Works!
we have THREE wonderful prizes up for grabs this month to one lucky winner!
