Happy Birthday Granny!

24 Aug

Grannies have to get home made bits and bobs, don’t they? It’s the rule. So we made Granny’s present this year.

First, I  freezer paper stencilled “I love you Granny” onto a canvas – it was going to be something inspirational about grandmothers and sparkle or something, but I lost steam after about three letters because it was too fiddly. Then I let a small boy have free reign with the acrylic paints

And here is the result

If you’re going to give it a go, freezer paper doesn’t adhere to canvas particularly well. Perhaps contact paper or something would be better? And secondly, perhaps limit the number of colours so that it doesn’t end up looking like mud. Of course, the Turtle could give Granny mud and she would like it regardless. Grannies are great.

Happy birthday Granny!
