My girls, 8 & 11 yrs old, have been begging me to teach them to color with my Copics. They have a grandfather with a birthday coming up, so I thought it was a good learning opportunity. Both girls wanted to enter challenges.
They were such good students! I had them pick paper and stamps that they liked. They listened, and were very gentle with my Copics. I am so so so proud of their finished cards! They did them ALL by themselves! The only thing I did for my 8 yr old was fussy cut!
My 8 yr old, Ava, entered the TCPTues293 Color Inspiration Challenge.
She created the layout all on her own. She decided every single detail. I was so proud of her!
My 11 yr old, Anika, entered the YNS Sketch and Color Challenge #17.
How could I not be proud of my girl? It's hard to see, but she paper pieced the stars on the banner. She wanted to try all the techniques she had seen me use before. I let her pick the colors and the papers. She fussy cut all by herself. She is so happy with this card!
I am tickled that my girls want to color with me. Now, I hope that they want to pick up the mess with me too! ;)
