Inspired by Joscie


So this is the start of a mini album inspired by Joscie. I painted the flower freehand, and am overall happy with the way the paint looks. That's kraft-colored chipboard is a cereal box! I'm recycling, too. As I worked on this, Olivia got out a container of play dough and asked me if she could have some of that flat stuff to use as a mat for play! Then she rolled it and it stuck, we got out my library card and used it to scrape it up and then she proceeded to make "pizza." We have been making magazine collages to paste into our homeschooling journals, to write about things we like. I'll have to share some here.

I am definitely voting for McCain. I do not agree with Obama's politics at all.

LOVE the book! The painting indeed came out PERFECT (that is a very pretty flower, I thought it was one of those fancy design papers glued on the cardboard). Clever use for Cereal boxes, I'll have to start my own!
