If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you probably know that I have a daughter with Autism. One of her very favorite activities is painting. She will paint with watercolors, finger paints, regular paints, really any type of paint. We’ve got stacks and stacks of her little works of art (she can do 4-5 in a given session) and I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with all of them.
When my Mother-in-law asked me to make her some note cards with the sentiment that I’d used on my card for World Autism Awareness Day (you can see that card here), I had an idea…and this is what I made for her.
This was a super simple and fun project. I cut the fabulous paintings that my daughter made into 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″ panels, stamped the sentiment from the Perfect Pennants stamp set in StazOn Jet Black Ink on them and adhered them to the precut note cards that you can see on page 194 of the catalog.
Here are some individual shots of some of the cards. Each one is unique with its own colors and design.
I made two dozen note cards and I think these two are my favorites from the set.
And here is my little artist at work creating more paintings. Yes, she does love to paint her hands and use them to apply the paint to the paper as well. 🙂
