Tiffany's First Fatbook page


Tiffany is my 12 year old granddaughter. Both my granddaughters
are artistic. I started letting them paint with me when they were
very young. They loved it.
Krista, the 15 year old, wore lots of paint, while Tiffany was a little
neat-nik. She would wipe her hands dozens of times while painting.

Both the girls started doing some scrapbooking a few years back
and loved it. Then Krista started doing ATCs with me. Tiffany
wanted in but at 9, I thought she was still too young to concentrate
on what we were doing. I was wrong.
She made ATCs all on her own.

Recently, she was watching her mom make some fatbook/chunky
book pages for a swap on my yahoo group, Altered_stART, and
decided to make an ABC fatbook. This is Tiff's first page. She did
this with help from no one.
The little plastic bubble over the button is a "googley eye".
She took it apart to get the desired effect she wanted. She also
took the time to look up the word 'Art' in a Spanish/English
dictionary, so she could add other elements to her piece.

I'm very proud of all my girls. Julie (dd), Krista and Tiffany,
you make me so proud with your artistic abilities and the way
you use them.
