Leia's Present

Leia and I collaborated on a Father's Day gift for her daddy. 
 
Inspired by this pin on Pinterest, Leia and I picked up canvas, acrylic paints and brushes from the craft store. 
 
I'm still not sure why we got brushes, since she much preferred painting with her hands . . .
 
We spread everything out on the kitchen floor and went to town. 
 
The next day, while Leia was at her mom's, I carefully peeled back the painters tape to reveal the hidden message.
 
Leia added the finishing touches -
 
a bit more paint and embellishments in the form of pearls, hearts and sparklies (most of which date from the 70's and 80's; a craft stash is a wonderful thing.)
 
And Daddy's reaction to our multimedia masterpiece?
 
I think he liked it.
