My Creations

Last week as I was reading some of my favorite blogs. I ran across TinkerLab and their Double Page Spread Challenge. As parents we tend to focus on our kids creative experiences and forget about feeding our own creative minds. TinkerLab has set up a challenge where you get a sketch book and each day you do something creative on a double spread. It can be anything you wish or you can look at the weekly suggestions that TinkerLab posts. Oh and if you are looking for some cool art projects to do with your child stop by TinkerLab for tons of ideas. 

Here is my first day of the challenge. I decided I wanted to try to reproduce a cover from Virginia's library book, Bubble Bubble by Mercer Mayer. The book is wonderful and the illustrations are beautiful. It has been awhile since I have sat down myself and drawn or painted. I actually found myself having fun and remembering the days of college when I would stay up late finishing a project in my dorm room. It was alot of fun and as I finished the two pages Virginia jumped on the bed and started drawing with me. That was the best part, just Virginia and I creating art together.
