Our family missed the Easter festivities... so "A Day Late" - we dyed eggs! I know, I know... but we all wanted too - so we had fun coloring our boiled eggs! Now I'm trying to catching up on washing clothes - argh!
Had just a small bit of time to create a "Kid's Card" - the kind that can be thrown away or torn up without "too many" tears...LOL! This card is attached to candy - so kids always like the card! It's a small 3x3 card - the cupcake on the front is a die-cut from the cuttlebug and then the base of the card is textured with a "Happy Birthday" cuttlebug card. I LOVE my cuttlebug - can't wait until the summer to play MORE with this machine! (34 more days... but who's counting!)
In art class for the last week, my students have been taking their 2-D cartoon characters and molding them into a 3-D
sculpture out of clay. We're using a "Sculpty" clay - an oven baked clay for this project. We're studying the Principles of Design - Rhythm and Movement using cartoons, caricatures and comic strips. Now the challenge is to create a sculpture. Each clay NURDZ started out in a drawing. My students have a great sense of humor and enthusiasm in making these "NURDZ"; we even have a "NURDZ-ERY" for our clay sculptures... it's been fun. Sometimes we even have "self sculptures" - ones that strongly resemble the artist!!
