sand art as promised

mia celebrated her 5th birthday back in March and along with many gifts, she received a parcel from London from my sister Anita. along with a flower press, body butter (which smells like strawberries) and perfume she got sand art. for those of you who are not familiar with sand art (which was me until a week ago) the following photos might help to explain it.
you start with a picture that has been cut through and when peeled reveals a sticky space. the idea is to peel off a piece at a time adding the chosen colour to that spot.
here mia peel off each section bit by bit and added the colours she wanted. looking good isn't it?
there were two pictures in the pack and she generously gave lili one to do. so as i poured the colour on the girls had to carefully spread it out over the exposed sticky part.
here is Mia's looking amazing... and this is lilis almost done.
here is the finished product, it even came with two frames. the girls have chosen who they wish to give them to but i cant tell you as they might read this blog :)
this is the end product for mia, we used too much blue close together but it is still pretty.
thanks aunty anita for such a great gift, love from pussicatti!
cant wait to try out the egg art!

Oh you're welcome Pussicatti. And that is so nice that you want to give them away... I'll send some more home with Cherry's birthday present I think and enough for Chelsea and Hannah to join in. Thank you Rosey for posting these pictures, they look lovely.

Love you all.

Wow, that is really great! The girls' pictures are beautiful. I didn't know there were kits like that, that peel away piece by piece. That is so much easier!
