I've created a monster!

Regular visitors to my blog will already know that I have a couple of little proteges, Willow and Faith. Willow already has a very healthy selection of promarkers and an ever-growing stash box. But on this latest trip to The Papeterie she decided she's going to have a go at Altered Art and bought (I use that term loosely, what I really mean is I paid for it) a papier mache box and a wooden key case. 
Now she's a clever cookie and does listen to her mum now and again... daddy came through while she was colouring the wooden box with promarkers, and said "noooooooooooo, you can't use your promarkers for that" to which Willow and I replied in unison "oh yes you can!"
So here's her altered box - she's coloured it with promarkers and decorated it with a Whimsy image and a Tim Holtz rosette made out of SU papers...

Here's her altered key cabinet that she has decided to use as a jewellery cabinet.....

Her one fault though, is that she doesn't take her time - but then patience is something her mother is lacking too lol
Well, I have to write a Marketing essay, so I better get back to it.

Thanks for visiting, 
I appreciate any comments

What gorgeous keep sakes. With a talent like yours it is sure to rub off.
I just love it, my daughter is the same, in fact she creates too much! So much so I don't know where I'm gonna keep it all.

I'm looking at the little cabinet - my goodness have you already taught her colour theory? Impressive. Hope you get on OK with that essay.
