Three Ice Creams Please!











I am so humbled and grateful for all the feedback last week on my video.  It means more to me than I can express.  I am so pleased it was so well received and I enjoyed making it so much!  Thank you Thank you Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

My little foursome is complete and happy.  The three girl canvases each represent one of my girls and their love for ice cream cones after a day swimming in the summer.  This came to me after making the little ice cream cone page in my altered journal out of styrofoam.  I thought it turned out so great, and with such great feedback, I would make a canvas with styrofoam as my key ingredient.  Once I had that vision in my mind, I knew I had to create this foursome with my girls and their love for ice cream.  *kelsey and I these days are only eating almond dream, but hey, you know!!!

...and I just looked left, and saw that I have 99 followers!  I guess one more and I will have to do a give-away!!!

  28. Love this wonderful tribute to your daughters! This is a really fun and cute series- I feel inspired to tackle doing something of my little ones now. I've drawn them as coloring pages before but I've never tried painting something that would represent them. Very cool.

  45. Daniele, these are SO, SO SWEET! I love the concept of the four separate canvases! Makes me think I should do something with my three kids like that!

    I've officially begun Project Life, and I think I'm hooked! It's such a funner, more easy-going way of journaling. Much easier to keep up with. I'll be doing a post soon...!

  46. Daniele! What an awesome concept. Working in a group like that! And the ice creams are really unique and beautiful. I love how you take random stuff and create something absolutely amazing. Love that you think that far outside the box. You inspire me to push products and materials into new and exciting uses. I am grateful for our blog friendship because you inspire me to be a better artist.
