Ariel ~ Mermaid dreams under the Sea..

NB: This is a blogpost feauturing my niece's creations!

Jeg har noen flotte kreasjoner fra niesen min å vise frem! Jeg syns hun er kjempeflink til å være 10 år (11 år neste mnd.), men hun maser hele tiden om å bli like flink som meg, litt utålmodig kansje ~ de tre kortene nederst er fra 2013-2014 så øvelse gjør mester :)

Har hjulpet litt til med å fortelle hvor hun kan legge skygger, og jeg har tegnet og malt en havbunn for henne, hun fortalte hvilke stempler hun ville ha og hvor de skulle være. Hun har dilla på havfruer denne jenta! Men så har hun jo navnet til selveste den lille havfruen Ariel også da
Ville vært en flott bursdags overraskelse om hun vant i en av utfordringene!

Theese creations are not by me but made by my niece, mostly all by her self ~ aren't they lovely? She's fascinated by mermaids, no wonder really as she is named Ariel On her mermaid painting I helped with drawing a ocean floor behind the stamps, which I also placed, after her instructions to which ones and where. And as she watched me paint shadows on the stampmotifs I was doing alongside her, she then imitated shadows here :) 

The cards below are from 2013-2014. So fun to see her artistic skill progress as she gets older! Keeping within the lines and fussycutting is a good skill to have, and something you ought to be able to do by her age. She's actually turning 11 next month! So it would be a fun surprise if she won in a challenge with her creation
