I’m on vacation for a few days to visit my brother and his lovely (and pregnant!) wife. While I’m away some of my favourite local artists and bloggers have agreed to do posts for you! Today, Marg shares a fun Art Book she taught to a group of young girls. Enjoy!                                                                            

Thanks, Sara for asking me to be a guest blogger.

On November 11, four wonderful nine-year-old girls came over to my house and we had so much fun making an Art Book.

This is my Art Book:


Here is the inside of my book:


In making these books we used Watercolour Paper, Golden Reg Matte Medium, Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Back Canvas, Stencils, Tissue paper,Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist, Maya Road Chipboard pieces, Studio Calico Mistables, Basic Liquitex acrylic paints, Dylusion Stamps, Inka Gold, Permaopaque pens, Sizzix and Magazines.

I showed the girls my book and they proceeded to make their own. All were so different and they were all so wonderful! It was so nice watching their imaginations at work.

Here are two of the girl’s books:

Claire’s Book


Jordan’s Book


I love working with children because they get so excited and have so much imagination which they are not afraid to follow. We should be so lucky.

If you have young children make sure they have time to experiment with art. Sit back and enjoy their inhibitions when they are creating.
