morning I felt I needed to create, to stitch together the remaining "leave'
shape that I colored & cut weeks ago using an page from an old map book.… Iooking for in that paperblock I found my drawing "women with a green
hat ", I drew over a year ago.
night I stitched the forms together.
I use trasparent paper to design the stitches.... unconsciously I can see that I was inspired by Henri Matisse
This is a great summer artproject ! reUse! REpost !! ...
This summer project, cardboard mobile "shells" was hanged on the outside swing.
First they created the cardboard collage; on a pre cut recycled cardboard they glued squared shape precut cardcoard. After covering one side of the cardboard they turned the cardboard over and glued shapes on the reverse side. This step was repeated at least twice, and then put aside to dry.
The second object on the mobile is made from wavy cardboard. The shape was stapled to create a 3 dimension shape looking like a shell. The wavy side (outer side) is painted with gauche. For the inner side, I added glue to the paint andwith a spoon color sand was poured on the object.

It's extra nice when you link back, so the chain of sharing grows stronger. Big thanks to those teachers who share their ideas for the benefit of kids in art classes everywhere!".....Thank you Mrs Knight
