Because I mentioned earlier that we participated in a great community art project, I want to share the results with you! The original image (top picture) was divided into over a hundred sections. Participants were each given a sheet of paper that had mysterious blobs of color on it (with no idea of what the "big picture" looked like), and we were to reproduce is -- using anything at all. And although we went traditional with ours -- oil pastels and watercolors -- the variety of materials used was fascinating: wool, magazines, embroidery floss, yarn (all below), glitter, fabric, found objects, shells, freeze-dried green beans (!). The result was beautiful!
|This is our contribution -- we matched up pretty well! |
I'm happy I stretched myself to try it -- that felt good.
