My 10 year old daughter’s artwork blows me away.

  1. Hey! Found this on Pinterest and followed through 364+ comments to write here. As a mother of two kids in their 20’s, can I just say that there is hope at the end of a very long tunnel. Its a hard thought to hold onto sometimes, I know, but I guarantee that your daughter will blossom into a wonderful young woman, and all these teenage “trials” will be forgotten (by her, not so much by you, haha!). Wonderful piece of art here, she will become so much more, you wait and see! πŸ™‚

    1. WOW. i thank you very much for taking the time to scroll through all those comments. My daughter did that piece of artwork a long time ago, she is now 15 going on 30. We have tough moments, but i can be her emotional punching bag on occasion because i understand she trusts me enough not to ever give up on her. i proudly own the artwork that was posted all those years ago. Thank you so very much for your lovely note. ~amy

        As a mother of a lovely 18 yr old my advice to you is STOP writing about your daughter. Esp anything negative. Please do not make one more comment about her on the Internet. This private stuff should not be out there for strangers (like me) to read. Just stop.

    1. Sophie will be turning 15 next month. Life here is crawling to a place where freedom from torment can almost be reached. Close enough to see & feel, though frustrating that it takes so long. How have you been? ~amy

        15? A great age. Though they don’t necessarily realize it in the moment. I’m fine. I do hope you reach that freedom soon. Like I said in another comment: feel free to vent. It’s good for you. You take good care of yourself. B.

      2. 15 is a great age to BE, not as much to raise one. Someone made of fire w/o a fully formed Cerebral Cortex is quite difficult to deal with. πŸ™‚ I am glad you are fine…although i do know ‘fine’ can mean almost anything. i used it when life sucks. as in “Oh, i’m fine. no, really b/c if i tell you the truth i may shatter into a thousand pieces?” Freedom from this HELL is almost over. The kids & i just want it all to end. But he wants revenge but doesn’t understand or comprehend that when he hurts me, he hurts my kids too. Venting…Thank you for ‘listening’ ~amy

        The age and the divorce must make it a tad complicated. I’ve never understood revenge. Seems to me a ludicrous activity. A waste of time. But then I find myself to be weird sometimes. πŸ™‚ Plus the fact that revenge exacted in such a situation definitely hurts kids. They… just don’t understand.
        I do understand some people can be very… mean. (Most of the human race?) πŸ˜‰

      Hi Rhia,
      My daughter thought up the idea herself & surprised me with it when she was 9 or 10years old. I had cheap paper on a roll & she had been given her own sharpie markers. What she did was roll out some paper & used the black sharpie first & made squares & rectangles, then she went back after the black sharpie dried & used color to create designs within her boxes. She is now 14 years old & she has finally given me the piece of art work & i’m going to have it framed, glass on both sides to hang in front of a window. That is what she did & i wish you good luck! ~amy

      Can you believe my daughter did that on her own at 9yrs of age?! She is now fourteen. It does offer privacy, the thing is if you color one side, the colors bleed through, but not totally. So if you wanted it to look beautiful from both sides you’d have to color both sides. Sophie gave this to me this year. i have it rolled up to take to get it framed. It is spectacular. Thank you. ~amy

    Wow, Amy. I have just been blown away thanks to seeing Sarah’s original pin on Pinterest. I repinned it with paper and sharpie details. I have used Nobo OHP transparencies with sharpies in the past for making ‘stained glass window’ Christmas decorations, and embellishments for cards. I will dig them up and try some colouring with them. Like others, I can’t draw to save my life but love colouring in. I follow doodlegal on deviantArt, who does some awesome pages to colour. ~ Lu

      A wonderful idea, Wendy! Having the children make the stained glass for your art room is a fantastic idea. I hope you can find the cheap paper i used. It was on a roll & is thinner then office paper, with a bit of a sheen to it. Usually you can find rolled up paper at toy stores instead of art, because it’s quality is so bad, which makes it perfect for ‘stained glass’. ~amy

      The fear of failure inhibits you. I taught myself & felt the same fear. Then I told myself that what ever I made is for the trash can. It took away the fear of failure, because I already knew it was trash. BUT i made sure i found the one spot i did like & questioned myself why-then made sure to apply what I did learn by doing to the next piece of trash. Making art is one of the bravest things to do-once childhood is over. Good luck. Copy Sophie, she was nine when she made this on her own. ~amy

    HI Sohpie’s Mom. This is a STRANGE question I know but, does Sophie have Attention Deficit Disorder? The reason I am asking is that my daughter & son and myself all have some form of Add or Adhd and the 1 variable that links us ALL together is this disorder is that we ARE ALL HIGHLY CREATIVE!!!! Those kids can come up with most artistic things that adults just sit in amazement that a child made the piece. It is the same feeling I got when I looked at Sophie’s faux stained glass picture!!! It is something that shows a developed imagination far beyond her 10yrs at the time.. All I can say, Add or not, is GOD BLESS HER AND KEEP HER AND MAY HE ALLOW HER TO KEEP CREATING!!!
    By the way, I ran into this on Pinterest!!
    Blessings to your family!

    use clear contact paper; leave the backing on during process,
    then remove and double back onto another piece of clear
    contact paper. Just a thought – then you could frame with
    craft foam or craft sticks to hang in a window. Another
    thought for handing is using craft glue to paint on the back
    of the contact paper to make a window cling.

    Pinterest led me here too. I thought it odd that it said wax paper because I thought sharpies would smudge and as you note it is not wax paper. I just don’t know where to find this very cheap paper on a roll – is it white paper? It looks like it lets light in so a clear or wax paper quality makes more sense. I sure hope I can find the paper. If you find it online can you post a link? Thanks!! Your daughter is quite the artist.
