First time for Fussy Cutting

 We had a great day!  
Jean here, having so much fun with family!  
This is my Gabby, fresh from the pool, wet hair and all, but we could not wait to  start our project.  
She is learning some techniques for the future as an artist.
We started with one of the wooden hangers, sanded and then painted it with EcoGreen Blue Patina acrylic paint

Miss Gabriella (aka Angelface) worked with me to create clothes hangers for her doll dresses.   And she had such fun.   We kept it simple, but she learned some techniques and that is a good thing!    I loved the look on her face when she finished each step with success.

Gabby's Great Grandma (Mema)
collects Antique and Victorian dolls, so we decided we would make a hanger for her dolls too.   
After all, Grandmothers are just Antique little girls!

The finished product
So happy Gabby took an interest and was an excellent student. 
 Her Mom, Stephanie is quite the artist and will be showcased with a fantastic Halloween project Kit this week.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
