Today was a super fun day. I made a bunch of projects for my art camp tomorrow. The little alien pipe cleaner dude is from a project I made 13 years ago for a summer camp at my school. The kids loved it. I saw an old camper today who is now in COLLEGE, oh my god, and the idea came back to me in a flash. The two dogs are Billy (our sweet dog) and Deuces (my arch nemesis). In the middle is a nest with birdies that just hatched in our backyard.
This is a wind chime I saw on First Palette a while back. I embellished it a bit by covering cardstock in tin foil and then adding tissue paper for the main part. I used pipe cleaners instead of string for one of the wind chimes I made, creating a cool octopus type look.
Then Brigitte, my fabulous co-teacher, gave me some leftover lids that were headed for the trash. I covered those in tin foil as well, got out the puffy paint, and voila! Awesome refrigerator magnets. So much fun!
