After teaching her stamping and paper piecing, which she is amazing at, we went onto stencilling. Megan loves to collect the little rubber animals and so I had promised her we could make homes for them.
I found a nice cutting file in the Silhouette store and cut them out in white card. A great deal of thought went into who would live with who and then what they would like on their house.
Each house was painted inside and out with watercolour and then a design was stencilled on the outside with ink. The Penguin's home was stamped with snowflakes,
The whale and octopus had a wavy pattern like the sea, the cow who is looking out the window, a zigzag farm style pattern.
Monkey and elephant wanted bamboo to remind them of the jungle
and hamster just liked the pink!
They all had house numbers from book pages and a door handle of course!
We completed the houses with removable roofs so they can be played with, which we covered with scraps of scrapbook papers.
We both had great fun doing this project and you can't tell which house I did and which was Megan's works, she is quite amazing and a complete natural. No one else in her family is crafty in any way but she loves it. We will get together again soon and have a crafty afternoon, I have so many ideas!
