Deck of Me- Week 16: Get Someone Else to Contribute
I joined two cards together to make them into an envelope for this week's art prompt. I wanted it to be able to hold memories of California since we are moving soon. So after I painted the front and back and cut it to make a flap, I crocheted it together and made a little handle. I also sewed little buttons on to be able to tie it shut. The front says, "Treasured Friends, Treasured Memories~" with a painting of two girls sharing a treasure box of stars. The back says, "We'll always remember you," with a happy little moon and twinkle stars. Here's a bit of detail of the front.
What I decided it could hold inside (along with photos) was going to be lightly painted simple cards that my friends here could choose from that would describe them to write their name and put their email addresses on. I sketched pictures and to be able to get someone else to contribute I asked my girls to paint the little cards. Some aren't painted as lightly as I had imagined so we could see names written all over them, but I love the way they turned out and am impressed with my kiddos.
These are Makenzie's cards. (She's 7 years old today- by the way!- Happy Birthday cutie-poo).
These are Kendyl's cards- lovely. :) She's 3 years old.
I'll just carry this around with me for the next few weeks and get my friend's information (even if I have many of their email addresses already- it will be for the sake of memory keeping).
