Like Mother... Like Daughter


This afternoon, I was sitting down at my newly-cleaned desk and thought I would do some water-colouring practice. Even though it is now retired, I simply love the set Seaside Sketches. I got out watercolour paper and my ink pads and my aqua painter and tried to remember all the things they told us at Convention. I must say I am very happy with the end result.

After I finished my picture, my DD came in and said she wanted to make a picture too. So stamped another image on plain white card and gave her some colouring in pencils. Of course, she wanted to use similar colours to my card and this is her end result. Now of course I am a proud mummy, but I think she has done a fantastic job considering she is only 5 years old.
