Scribble scribble

Lola drew all over the toilet cover.... and all over the sink cabinet... and on several towels.
1 box of crayons and 10 minutes in the bathroom while I was trying to take a shower- that's all it took.
As my Mom would say "PRIMERISA!"
First timer!
Never look away during the crayon phase!! Which means I'll be staring at her till she's about 6, doesn't it?

But I guess I'm weird (or limited edition- heh heh) because the crayoned up toilet cover is staying- I like it- it's unique. The towels were fine after a good wash. No photo of the toilet- the idea of showing it skeeved me out- sorry.

I'm trying to find different ways to organize shapes on my pages- I feel this one hasd too much white space in the middle and looses the viewer- what do you think?
Materials: Jillibean Soup folder, Pink Paislee border strip, Sassafras border strip, Studio Calico exclusive red woodgrain, journaling tag and doily from K and Company
Also, over at Gauche Alchemy, fellow team member Christina is showing a gorgeous mixed media piece she made with with an old t-shirt, seed beads and a few strips of punchinella- it's really great work click the link above to check it out.

  1. Oh so many "I can't believe you drew on that" stories in my kids' lives...the best was when Rileigh not only chewed on a washable (thank GOD!) marker and had brown drool all over her chin/cheeks, and then colored all over her dolls' looked like they were Indian warriors, all painted up for battle! I like your page, even all the white space. My eyes were drawn all around it, from element to element, and at the end, I noticed there were scribbles in the middle. Love it! Great pics, too.

  2. all the photos really stand out in this page, and your eye does tend to hop from one to another, which is good. as for white space, it is there, but it's what the focus of the page is, no? I like the fact that one day Lola will look at that and it'll take a little while for it to dawn on her that that white space is something she once drew!

  3. I think the white space is perfection...and the altered toilet isn't so weird to me...does that make me weird too???

    I love the stitching up a storm you're doing!!!

  4. stare. they'll grow up so fast.. faster than you can imagine. and thank God it's crayon, mine was a tub of Nivea Creme. imagine the greasyness! LOL.


Ok peeps lets CHAT! You tell me what you REALLY think and I PROMISE to keep it open minded here.
