When I think of artists. I think of a wooden easel with a canvas panel propped on it, set out in a green lush garden decked in autumn colours, artist standing in front of the canvas with a palette in one hand and a brush in the other.
I never thought of painting on canvas, until I stepped into an artist's wonderland at Bras Basah..... aisle after aisle of art supplies, paints, brushes, and oh.... canvas! It was way cheaper than I expected (not that I knew how much they cost anyway :p) so this started a whole buying spree that didn't end up very cheap. I walked out of the store with brand new paint brushes, acrylic paint, canvas panels and some protective varnish!
These supplies sat around for quite some time before I actually did something with them. Hmmmm.... I think I'll start with some horoscope animals for each member of the family. Here's the first one. What do you think of it?
This, is Baby Bunny. Smiley, happy, cheery, all things sweet and all things nice =)
Baby Bunny plushie is made from a baby T-shirt that my Big One and Small One wore when they were little. And you know how fast little ones grow up, right? Well, this T-shirt almost ended up at the Salvation Army when Hubs decided to clear everything out! This T-shirt holds special memories for me. so I just had to grab it back and decided to make it into something else (think upcycle) that I could keep.
Baby Bunny is my way of holding onto memories of the little ones. How do you hold on to memories of your kids?
