If you're a tween and you've found 12:34, you're looking for something a little different than what many kid craft sites have to offer; toilet paper roll crafts might not seem as cool as they once did and perhaps you're looking to try your hand at something with a little more style. At 12:34, we hope to bridge the gap between projects for little kids and projects geared towards teenagers and adults. We try our hand at art, crafting, stamping - if we think it's cool - we'll try it. Thanks for dropping by! N&K

Week 4: Canvas Play

Image from unknown source

Maybe your son or daughter is like mine when it comes to canvas...shock and awe (okay maybe you're guilty of this same response also). The idea of working on a stretched canvas framed piece kind of freaks my daughter out, which is exactly why I want her to do it. We have multiple canvases of varying sizes laying around not being used, even a few canvas boards from my school days!

We've chosen a small 8 x 10 canvas size (Michael's sells a 10 pack of this size for $24.99 CDN) I've challenged Kiki to draw and plan out some ideas in her sketchbook before she gets started.

Sketch out some ideas for your canvas creation, taking into account the size and shape of the stretched canvas you will be using, and what supplies you have on hand. Transfer your favorite sketch onto the canvas. Don't let us stop you if you want to get right to painting. We're going to share some of our ideas and some mixed media suggestions for a canvas collage and supplies later in the week.

It's a busy week around these parts, so hopefully we'll have some images to share soon.
