Artful pages

Thankfully art is alive and well in schools and
my grandkids are quite talented artists.
So it was really fun to document 
and today I have created two layouts
for your blogreading delight.
So how about that adorable pup.
He's a very old Technique Tuesday stamp.
 Again I used most of my Studio Calico
and Creative Cafe stamps around this page 
because that wasn't busy enough
I threw in the Tim Holtz stencil, using yellow paint
with modeling paste.
 Added a few do-dads namely my homemade enamel dots, arrows and a heart sticker and called it a day.
 Kraft paper is the base cut down to 8x8
And honestly all 3 artists made some mighty fine art
How cool would that be....
 I didn't want to be a copy cat on the second page
so I lifted once again a prize ribbon from Soaphouse Mama
- she does them all the time and what better
embellie could there be but that.
And I cut the circles myself - mostly because I didn't have 
punches that nested that closely and I'm normally not that brave LOL.
 The little bird is from some no-name embellishments
I picked up at Michael's and
those stars are from Studio Calico kit and finally
used them babies all up.
Because it was a wild background that I keyed off
of from the artwork I gessoed where the photo and do-dads are
and found I liked it just fine and left it there.
The heart arrow is wooden - and stuck out like a sore thumb
in its pure form so I smooshed some watercolors
around to match the stars and wa-la.
Worked out well.
