Sharing our worktables each week at "Stamping Ground" is a fun meme - one that also ensures I actually get down to my worktable to do some art!
Here's the look of it after I completed the above journal page (which I had painted and shared last week). Here is the second layer of traced hearts, with my cut out painted hearts on the right, ready to be added.
Creating with glue and glitter did not result in creating the wonderfull vision I had - of a colourful sunset with a river and green grass.
I had no blue, which I really hadn't checked for before I started. No orange or yellow either. But I still had fun. Now I really have a glittery abstract(mess).
At least I used a small box to capture the extra glitter!
Glitter is one thing I refused to use in my classroom. I had known a child who got an infected eye from using glitter (not in my classroom, thankfully) and I always feared using it with so many children. The custodians hated it as well.
I also painted another background for my journal - not sure what I will create with this one yet.
This past week I focused on two February challenges: 29 Faces and Pattern Play. Both are fun, quick and easy to fit in during the day. I am trying to spend more time writing and reading so these challenges allow for a break from that.
I have been using faces from magazines for inspiration and have tried sketching:
Here are three of my latest:
using paper scraps
using gelli paper scraps
We have a winter wonderland outside this morning - icy trees and a layer of ice on the ground. I think we will be staying inside!
