Good thing I’ve got this little nugget up my sleeve… thanks to ikat bag for the inspiration!
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(…)
Ev says he’s doing the Artist’s Way too, though he doesn’t do any morning pages, nor go on any artist dates, or read any of the chapters? Hmm…Well, regardless, it’s rubbing off because yesterday while watching Moonstruck I looked out the window and found him doing THIS! And now it looks like THIS! Very zen.(…)
I’m not really sure about this project yet. It def needs some perfecting. I had some gift boxes lying around the house. I took one, decorated it with gold paper and felt in the shape of an alien and then accordioned some white paper and glued it into the box. On each panel I created a(…)
Once I started with the felt balls, I pretty much couldn’t stop, with the exception of Elvis style eating binges, which I finally got under control yesterday. Thank goodness.

Day 2 of Summer Camp 2010 was a big success. At least it seemed like it was. You never know with 6 year olds. We started our space shuttles, inspired by a project I found on Deep Space Sparkle. Patty has the best ideas. We followed most of her steps, but changed the background a(…)
Some robot/alien results from Art Summer Camp 2010. All made from otherwise thrown away materials, puffy paint, googley eyes and duct tape. You can check out my Robot here.
I saw a post by amazing art blogger MaryMaking not too long ago on how to make salt dough. She had made the dough for a whacky fish project. I have adapted the project for an “Out of this World” inspiration. Before I did it with the kids, I wanted to test it out. A few years(…)
