A bit of LOVE on a rainy day...

Remember my 'rainy day' stamping project inspiration from the other week? Well, I was at Hot Dollar (which is privately becoming my one-stop-shop all things crafty and/ or obscure) scouring the shelves for fun things for my daughter to stick to paper with glue, when I discovered one of those multi-coloured ink pads I didn't know where to find for just $4! Grabbing this - along with a pack of erasor-ended HB pencils, I had everything I needed to give this project a go!

I'd like to say I let Fern do this project... but I wanted this one all for myself! I placated her with pencils and paint while I worked on my masterpiece. Unfortunately, the ink pad wasn't the best quality and my colours aren't quite as vibrant as I had hoped -- but I still kinda like the end result!

Fern's Love heart on her new art wall.... she likes it!!

What do you think??

Fern's art wall is a work in progress. I believe in empowering children with their creativity and showcasing their work with pride, so her room will be a kind of evolving art gallery for whatever weird and wonderful masterpieces she might create!

See another of my idea for incorporating children's artwork in your home here.
