Jot Kids: Moriah's entry

Of both my girls it's probably Moriah (who's 7) who asks me if she can create alongside me more often than her older sister. Bethany is happy settling down with a good book, but Moriah prefers to be doing something with her hands. She's patient and meticulous and can draw for hours.

So she was thrilled with the Jot Kids challenge was issued because it gave her a great excuse to do some making.

I explained to her the concept of the Mood Board was to be inspired by the colours or a certain picture on it and then go in your own direction to create your layout.
She had particular ideas in her head straight away. 

She looked at the rainbow colours and decided she needed to draw her own rainbow in the corner of her page. Following that it only made sense that she would require clouds and raindrops. And she finished off the little scene she was creating with a line of grass down the bottom.

She wasn't going to worry about a title, but silly me opened my mouth and declared that most layouts included one (I should have just shut up and let her be creative in her own sense) and so she wrote out "The Biggest Rainbow" in her favourite Thickers... even though it didn't have much relevance to the content of her page :-)

She is so proud of her finished piece. The hand drawn details of Judah's little bow-tie are my favourite, but she would say it's the rainbow.

If you've got some creative kids who are looking for an activity to keep them busy these school holidays then check out the Jot Kids Mood Board challenge. Anita from Flutterby Designs has generously offered a prize for the lucky winner.
