Playing with Crayons

I’m having a new adventure in my creative journey, Life Book 2013.   Last year on Facebook I watched all year as pictures were posted from Life Book 2012, and I wanted to be a part of it.  This year I am.  Life Book is the creation of Tamara Laporte, a mixed media artist.  To loosen everyone up a bit, especially the newbies like myself, her first assignment was to create a “fairy godmother or father” that would say sweet and encouraging things to you all  year.  I didn’t venture too far from her tutorial since the neocolor II watersoluble crayons are new to me.  How fun is this sweet, little art fairy!

I struggle with just sitting and playing with crayons.  I should qualify that with “sitting alone”, since I love any sort of art project with my granddaughter!  But surely there is something more important I could be doing.  That’s why MY art fairy is telling me, “Playing with crayons is NOT wasting time.”
