A Rose is a Rose is a Rose...or not

I started teaching my young Thursday class how to do layers on Brushes XP for the iPad.
Considering these are 1-3 graders and the concept is even hard for some of us to get (ahem...including me), 
I think these are wonderful.
First they drew the black outlines.
Then I told them to trust me and follow along...
So then we opened a layer beneath the first one and colored in their flowers and vases.
They were amazed to see the magic.
Their black lines did not disappear,
but the colors filled in right behind.
Then we opened the third layer and they colored the background.
Again they were amazed by the magic!
Oh to be young and amazed at the wonder of the world,
or in this case the iPad.
