Children's art

What a wonderful idea - over at the Simon Says Stamp blog they have a children's challenge - basically anyone between 2 - 16 years of age can enter and their artwork has to contain glitter.
Well  Jessica (12) thought that would be a fun challenge to enter and after setting her up in front of my craft mat with paints, stencils and stamps, she set to work. 
This isn't an easy thing for a crafter to do - leave their child with access to all their precious supplies, so I half lingered nearby, I guess we all become immersed in the project we are making but at least I was on hand to make sure that brushes were washed fairly quickly, and stamps were cleaned after use etc - you get the idea!
She added her glitter on the roses but it isn't very obvious in the picture and she was very happy with her outcome - I love that, no worries over how it could have been improved, such a lot to learn from one's own daughter!
