James, my 8 year old’s first mixed media Provo craft project. My sweet boy has never asked to work with me before this day. His sister was visiting Nana and Papa and he wanted to spend time with me. I was working on hello Thursday projects that day. I asked him if he wanted to help create the monsters for the release. he was so excited and had so much fun. he even added a ton of glitter to the eyes and mouth. I do have to learn more patience. Kids waste supplies and I am so thrifty it is hard to watch. I am learning how to accept the waste just to have the time. My son has mild Asperger’s and he prefers to play by himself so him wanting to work with me was such an honor. He worked on the monsters and i worked on the frame. We had a blast.
I bought a $1.00 frame and some red paint sealed it with glittered sealer. I cut the words James out of the Cricut American Alphabet included with the Cricut Expression 2 at 2 inches added foam dots and added at angles to the right side of the frame. On the right I cut ut a ribbon from Just a note at 3 inches from page 45. The other details are from Cricut essentials also included with the AE2. A little pom-pom trim and some extra pizzazz from pearl pens from VIVA Decor.
