VALENTINE PARTY PART II

After the great food and goodies (previous post) we started on a collage craft project.  This is Valentine's Tam Style!
We used lots of glitter and texture....
After I lay out the background, Andy was inspired to finish my project.
Look at this bright and wonderful pink!  Tina was moved to work with embossing powder.
I guess those fish needed google eyes.
Andy was having fun, and really getting creative!
Learning to work with collage has always been tricky for me.  It can be overwhelming with so many steps and elements to combine.  Jody, Tina and Andy really have the hang of it.
Jody LOVES sparkle and texture.  She was so inspired by the class we took from Paulette Insall.  I think Jody has many collage pieces in her future!
Explosion of creativity!  Oh and notice, among the mess, the cheese cake and water break.  Need to get some energy....
Fun way to celebrate!  I will always look for a way to fit creativity into a family event.  It brings people together and it doesn't matter if your age, my teenager Andy at 15, my sissy and friend at 30 for me, over 40!

What fun and creative thing do you do at family functions?

Wishing you all a Happy Paint Party Friday, and In the Studio!

Happy Sunday Sketches too!! xoxo
