Picture Making with Jack

Creating and making memories are an important part of growing up, so as a Grandparent we have an obligation to the children to help make and create these memories for them.

Jack and his Mam have recently had a wonderful holiday together in Fuerteventura and Jack collected some shells whilst he was on the beach to remember his holiday.

On his return I promised we would make a picture frame for his favourite holiday snap and we would add his shells to it.

So with a tube of pinflair glue gel and his collection of shells he made the perfect memory picture.

I think you'll agree with me in saying he did an amazing job.

Didn't,t he collect some pretty shells?

 

If you were wondering where Jack and his Mam got their matching swimwear it is a company called Oddballs which which has a foundation to raise money for testicular cancer, his Mam sent them this picture and they were featured on the Oddballs website and Instagram.

Totally love this boy.

Watercolour Stamping

Stamps By Me, no not actually by me but by Toni Darroch. Not only does this girl rock her designs in stamps but she also has designed her own watercolour ink pads, re-inkers and tools too. Check out her Eureka 101 stamping and watercolour platform.

I dipped my toe in and did some stamping today with one of her stamps inks and using the Eureka101 for precision stamping being able to multi ink as many times as you want over the same piece of watercolour board allows you to become creative with colour.

I love the relaxed look of watercolour.

One stamp and two different looks just by changing up colours.

Well worth a look around Toni's shop and be sure to check out her gallery and tutorials.
