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!
