“Rainbow” by Emma & Adeline Heartquist
2019 Cairo Bear #31
Bank of Greene County
Description: This bear will be decoupaged with colorful tissue paper with glitter, glue, modge podge, and a glittery sealer. The tissue paper will be applied in subtle ombré rainbow design. This bear was mostly designed by Emma’s 3-year old daughter Adeline, who has been wanting to participate in the Cairo Bear project since last year, when her mother Emma created “Peony Bear.”
