My best friend’s daughter is obsessed with the Eiffel Tower.  His family are French Mauritian, many of them are multi lingual (sadly not my friend so much), and one of them gave little G a tshirt with Eiffel Tower on it.  It immediately became her favourite thing, and she has a book on it, and even got to visit a few months ago.

Anyway I had a few stamps, images and papers relating to Paris and the Eiffel Tower, and thought I would do a mixed media canvas themed around it.  It is the first one I have done for a while, but it was a lot of fun.  I tried to make it bright and airy coloured for a little girl.

I make arty mixed-media things, & write fantastical things (with kissing), & do musical & dancing things, & play gaming things, & do weightlifting things, & organise fabulous event things. But mostly I wrangle cats. Renaissance woman.

  1. F just showed me a photo of his daughter taken at the moment they turned a corner and she saw the Eiffel Tower up close for the first time.

    She has this amazing expression of delight and wonder on her face. And she is wearing cream coloured leggings with pink and brown spots, almost the same colours as the spotted paper in the photos. It was awesome
