A Great Week in Art...

This week we have been so busy finishing up symbolic self portraits.
After that, I taught them to make their own altered album. Some wonderful person in the community donated matting scraps. I cut them down to 5x7 and we are adding pages and spiral binding. They are furiously digging through scrapbook papers, magazine pages, and the paint. Some very amazing pieces of art are forming :)

We have also been avidly watching our Donors Choose site. I posted a project for new art tables. Ours shake when we erase and were not meant for art. We have had 4 donation and only need a handful more to make our goal. It's been very exciting :)

And, now it is Friday and we all get a break for a couple of days!! Someone needs to tell Mother Nature that tomorrow is May. She didn't get the memo here in Montana!!

Have a great weekend :)

Tech Literacy...

I've been playing (again). I know, I know. Every time I post, it's usually to comment on my "play". Must be that when I have time to play, I have time to post :)

It was a little different this time. There were the usual piles of papers, paint, ribbons, etc. Then the photos of the finished product. And then the thought to try something different. We bought this Apple over 2 years ago. Chris has played with the iMovie. I've ignored it. Today, I experimented and upped my technology literacy. (I even had to ask him for help...*gasp*...that NEVER happens when it comes to technology!)

Now, I have uploaded my photo slideshow on two different sites. Vimeo looks like it will be more user friendly. Flickr only takes 90 seconds of the movie. Mine was a little over that at 2 min. 30 sec.

So, if you traveled here via Flickr, you can now view the whole thing. My next devious plan is to add the video to my eBay auction for a unique way of viewing the product before bidding.

Among these pages you can journal, doodle, write out quotes or verses, paper trimmings, memorobilia, photos, and more.

Wish me luck. I'm having technical adventures :)

Oh! The Places You Will Go!

I know it has been forever.
I am back!!

And I have even managed to make something creative :)
It is a sweet little spiral bound book. It quotes the wonderful words of Dr. Seuss.
If you would like to see the inside, you can find it here :)

Happy Spring!
