There’s nothing like…


…a child’s authentic, uninhibited, free, vibrant and totally innocent art.

Julia made a paper doll with the most vibrant and rich crayons and I absolutely loved it and asked her to draw me another one that wasn’t cut out, to frame  - In the end I framed both – we framed them together and she watched that whole process of cutting mounting board, taking the staples out of the old framed picture, re-taping it, etc. 

Anyway, I love both of them, so one is in our bedroom upstairs and the other is downstairs on our ledge with all our photos in the lounge.

I love the way those 2 pictures light up morning/day when I look at them – the burst of joy they give me is awesome!  I love the rainbow colours in them!

This is the first one which was cut out and that I really love.

This is the next one which is in our room, the cute thing was the legs to one side.  I don’t think she really noticed that until I was hanging it on the wall and she said “Mummy, that doll is sitting on a chair”. I thought this was so clever as when you look at it, it does have that optical illusion, don’t you think?

  1. Absolutely gorgeous! You are right the rainbow colours and the big smile is a definite mood lifter. Love the the details on the first one, hair clip, sparkly shoes, the dress pattern. What's not to love about children's art?
