People use the word “enabler” like it’s a bad thing. I suppose my wallet may consider some of my art enabler friends a bit of a bad influence, but they’re so much fun!
Lately, I’ve been able to be the art enabler with my 13-year old daughter, and I have to admit I love it! After seeing one of the art journaling books I borrowed from the library, she decided she wanted to keep an art journal, too. She chose a spiral-bound blank book and she’s started completely from scratch – including arting her own cover.
My daughter has been working with two books side-by-side. One is a print book (altered book) so she can try different techniques in it, and the other is her blank journal. Today, we were trying a couple different things with paint and ended up arting ourselves.
I truly loved having my daughter share one of my passions! I hope she’ll find many hours of enjoyment from it in the future 🙂
