A is for Art

Happy Sunday!  Happy Super Bowl Sunday that is! Not that I pay any attention to the big game, but everywhere I turn I am somehow reminded about it.

I have a new series of pins that I am going to share--new to my blog at least.  I started making these when I started working at my current job in a preschool.  While introducing letters to the kiddos, we were trying to find ways to keep it interesting and fun for them...and us!

I began making these "letter-of-the-week" pins.  Half the fun was trying to determine what would work on a pin...and be kid friendly and appropriate.  The other bit of fun was making them and then bringing them in to share with my friends. 






The apples were created with a punch, markers, and shrink material. They were glued to the letter after it was painted white.
.



The ants were drawn by hand in black marker on green acrylic paint.


After much consideration, I've decided to offer these in my Etsy shop.  I think they would be a great monogram gift for a teacher.  What do you think?

Stay tuned for more...
