My Creative Space:chunkychooky revealed...

I do love a bit of collage. These stencil people are from The Small Object- I saw them ages ago and printed some off for Busy. We dressed them on the weekend.

If you have always wondered what I look like- this is me, according to Busy. Am I how you pictured me to be in your head? ( sorry about the bad light in the pics)

I framed them in some really cheaps frames and grouped them together on the wall in her room- a little crocked - but hey- if I didn't do them immediately they would never have got done.




They look really good all together and I have always been a big fan of displaying childrens art work nicely.
She is pretty happy about seeing them in her room.  I sometimes forget to do creative things with her- where I sit with her and actually help her do it as I worry I will try and take over ( did someone say control freak)  So I usually just watch and try not to interfere. But we did these together and I love them.

  9. Beautiful, and I bet she's proud as punch looking at them on the wall.

    I use the fact that my boys are, well, boys, in order to avoid crafting with them. Which is dumb.

  14. Well, yep, that's PRECISELY how I had you in my head! Knew you'd be one for feather headpieces and all. I bet Busy is wearing a great chuffed grin when she looks at 'em.

  17. Sparkly, feathery and with a wand - for sure, I will be able to spot you in the street for sure!
    They are just divine. I know our kids love it when their art makes the wall, since I did Caleb's drawing in embroider, he now thinks I should recreate every single drawing he makes!
