Take a tip from these three, tripping the spring fandango
Get up and make some tracks in the soft wet earth or high on the wire
Join the avian gang twittering the day away
They won’t save those seeds for you
But they’ll let you fill their feeder
Take your lunch under their tree
Get all quiet and munch
Take a tip or two or three from these spring warblers
We got kind of stamp-happy this week with our acrylics and all kinds of stamping things: home-made, found, and purchased. At one point in Muse Group I went around and took some pictures. It is such a catalyst for creative work to see the materials all spread out and people diving in and making colorful marks and seeing the patterns evolving!
When I saw what was happening on my paper palette (on the left) I decided to “steal” the idea from myself! I slathered on the paint and used a homemade soft linoleum stamp and cut out some paper I’d already stamped on.
For these birds I used a hand-carved stamp made in India and then cut out the shapes to use in the painting above, adding more color later.
Mary Ellen was rolling acrylic paint onto rubber shelf liner which you can find at the hardware store, then printing with it!
Here Pat is making some wonderful collage paper for later use. Actually many of us wished we could have this design in a set of placemats!
Experiment! Experiment! Experiment! It all made my creative tail wag! Carole’s were spread all over.
