Grandchildren Are a Gift

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I was worried if I would be able to get the shading on the faces to bring out all their character. My grandson can be quite "impish" and I love the way my granddaughters eyes show her love. I was pleased with the way it turned out. Both grandchildren have curly hair, and I was happy with the shading on it as well. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't fret over it, just do it. You might be as pleasantly surprised as I was. This is a gift I am going to give to their mother for her birthday and I am hoping she really likes it.

  • 100% Cotton Fabrics
  • Prismacolor Pencils
  • Gamsol and Stump for blending
  • Textile Medium
