Creative Colour

My mum recently signed up for the new class by Christie Tomlinson: Creative colour. Its all about sourcing colour inspiration from your surrounds, internet, magazines etc and creating mood boards. Its designed to get you to think about colours you wouldnt neccesarily choose.

So together with my sister, we had a play day. My sister sarah(confused, she is adopted so 2 sarah's in our family, lol)is severly autistic but just loves to do arts and crafts. We had such a great time, and L Sarah sat for over 3 hours before she lost her focus.

Here are some pics of the preparation and making the backgrounds.

Even my 9 month old daughter Rebecca got in on the act.

and the finished product. Mum's is the green/ mustard one, mine is the larger yellow one, its for Rebecca's room and the blue/ pink one is L sarah's.

Isnt this outstanding for a very autistic young lady. All her own work except the rub ons which we did for her as she is very heavy handed.

Cant wait to do more of the classes.

Wow the canvases are fantastic I would love to have a go at these but wouldn't have a clue where to start. My Oscar would love trying this too he loves arts and crafts too when I let him at the stuff.

Your Sister Sarah has done an amazing job on hers they all look stunning :)
