ABC Wednesday - O and WOYWW
This week at ABC Wednesday, O is the letter of focus.
O is for oil pastels. They can be very messy but they are fun to use. I tried two different kinds of pastels:
I had picked up some fallen leaves - a maple and oak and thought I would try an activity I used with my students.
First I went around each leaf by pushing the oil pastel out from the edge. Next I just traced the leaf and coloured in. Unfortunately the leaves had become a bit brittle, so it was a bit of a challenge.

Each week, Julia Dunnit of "Stamping Ground" hosts the fun meme WOYWW - where artists from around the world share their work spaces and what they are working on.
I created the leaf pastels on my art table. It was quick and only a bit messy this time - fun to just play with a medium I don't use too much.
