TGF Heart Journaling week4

Hi!  It's week 4 of TGF's Heart Journaling.  This week's theme is the girl in me and we had to draw!  Pretty scary trying to draw so I tried to think of a way to not put so much details into drawing a girl.  Hehe, maybe it's cheating?  And the tip was to try using a medium we've never used before.   

My daughter's layout.  While I was out shopping for extra school supplies, I saw a Crayola painting set and thought we could try those.  So my daughter used paints to make a rainbow and then she drew some girls (her friends?) on paper and cut them out.  I think it looks happy and bright.

Okay, here's mine.  I don't know who thought of the rainbow idea first but some how we ended up with similar backgrounds!  Maybe cause there were so many different colored paints, it reminded both of us of rainbows.  My 2 boys painted their own rainbows too!  See, I told you I didn't want to draw detailed girls.  I used black paint to draw me and my daughter.  Then my kids told me it looked scary, like ghosts.  Hahaha, but I didn't care much.  But now that I have more time, I found these metallic pencils while out shopping!  So I colored the black ghostly figures and outlined them with a Sharpie.  The funny, or maybe it's more sad, thing is that you probably wouldn't be able to tell who did which layout if I hadn't pointed it out.  Yeah, I paint/draw like a kid.

Well, tonight's the big wedding night.  In the end, I still wish them well.

Thanks for reading!
