When I Grow Up...

By Amanda Marks

It is hard to believe my design team commitment has comes to an end, I have had so much fun creating projects for Robin's Nest.  I want to thank everyone at Robin's Nest and Terri Sproul for this amazing opportunity.  

For my last post I wanted to make my daughter a keepsake using a shadow box from McGuffey Woodworking.  Last November we met my daughter's favorite author, Alyssia Satin Capucilli.  She is the author of Biscuit, Katy Duck and many, many other books.  My daughter wants to be an author and illustrator when she grows up.  

Materials:
4 mini canvas (2"x2")
Derwent Inktense Pencils
Metallic Cooper Folk Art Paint
Mod Podge®
Beacon 3-in-1

To create the image on the canvas I put all four together and drew the picture on them with my Inktense Pencils.

The butterfly I drew with my Inktense Pencils.  My daughter has a fondness for butterflies and wants to be an illustrator so I thought this would be a nice way to display her dreams.
