Happy Friday to you all! My posts have been so sparse lately, but I am still here working on things that I want to share. This project makes me especially happy...
Lately, I have been very content to play with paper.
One day, when I was tracing and cutting out shamrocks at school, I realized the glossy finger paint paper I was using would be perfect for alcohol inks. I gathered up the scraps and set them aside to play with at home.
I see the applicators for alcohol inks all the time in the stores. But I can't seem to ever buy one. When I got home that day, I fashioned my own.
Yup, it's a large binder clip (had it), and some white felt (had that too). After I put that together, then I just had fun. I dotted and swirled, and swiped. I layered colors and got all fancy. Then I used some simple paper punches and scissors to make some shapes.
As I worked (or played depending how you want to look at it), I realized that my creation was definitely reminiscent of Eric Carle's deservedly famous books and pictures.
Guess I shouldn't be surprised, huh?
