With that I want to give major props to Charlie for doing two crafts at once, and doing them with a toddler helping out ( I count that as three). You are awesome girl. Props to all you hard working moms out there!
Here is today's Pin Spin!
(Another name for our MIYO-Make It Your Own series, thanks to Tiifijo for that awesome name suggestion!)
Our awesome reader Charlie sent us this project she did with her little one, she combined these two projects she got from Sarah Jane Studios ( http://sarahjanestudios.com/blog/ ). Charlie took these ideas combined them and made them her own, a fun Pin Spin to use as art! Bonus, she got to complete this cute piece with her 23 month old son, precious!
The Pin Spin
So cute right! This project is done by downloading the cutout (birds, elephant, seal) from Sarah Jane's blog (here is the link for that again, http://sarahjanestudios.com/blog/2009/03/make-your-own-gallery-templates/ ). Before hand you have your little one paint on some paper (give em' free reign with markers, watercolors, or finger paints whatever you want really), then you place the cutout on the painted paper and cut out your template of choice. Charlie finished hers off by making it more of a birdie collage like in the first example.
Some of you might be wondering why I have been doing so many of the Pin Spins (make it your own), but I just love to see all of the Pinstrosipeeps success, and not just because they did the project just like the directions, because they strayed from the norm and gave it a spin. We have gotten a lot of emails with people sharing their successes and I love having the opportunity to share them with you guys...I hope it helps get some creative juices flowing for our readers!
Happy Wednesday Pinstrosipeeps!
