I do enjoy prepping these for the kids. These have more of my handiwork as I layout and glue in the pages, keeping in mind we need to end up on the last page at the end of year celebration. I do leave sticker room and some blank pages for them.
Now today I need to march to the beat of their music!
They are coming tomorrow and are bringing their stuff. We shall upgrade and I'll send them each home with a package of papers and stickers and stuff. I'm deciding about holding back the coming months and just giving them out as each month begins. Might be less overwhelming and I can oogle what they have done.
What did I get out of this? A great cymbal smash! I hardly stopped for breaks. So much fun. Now how can I translate this happy sorting, planning, and making into my own art/collage works?
There is no waiting for stuff to dry, possible because I am working on three. Series work?
There is the challenge of unity and variety as I pull from the materials at hand. Challenge baskets?
There is a purpose, a flow. Story telling?
All I know is I'm mojoing right along. A few coughs but they are last gasps. I slipped out to do the chickens in my light sweater. :) The sun is Shining! April showers are forecast but...
I do believe it is pretty much brass band marches that I'm a hearing and marching with. Three cheers for SPRING!
Bing. Bang. BOOM!!!
