Gratitude Spiral: Day 345

Today, I’m grateful for a delivery of white illustration boards and special glue.

I’ve been wanting to create a collage using Eric Carle’s painted tissue paper techniques and now I have everything I need. It’ll take some experimenting, but playing around with these will be fun. Can’t wait!

Gratitude Spiral: Day 286

Today, I’m grateful for a new pad of acid-free translucent paper.

In my desire to experiment with Eric Carle’s painting and collage techniques, I’ve bought myself a pad of thin tissue-like paper. I’ve tried painting a few already. The pad has fifty pages and promises lots of trial-and-error learning and lots of fun. 🙂

Gratitude Spiral: Day 241

Today, I’m grateful for bubbles. Yes, that’s right. Bubbles.

I came around the last corner, approaching home after an early morning grocery store run, when something in the air above the road ahead caught my eye. I thought it was a swarm of bugs. It wasn’t. Next thing I knew, I was driving through a stream of bubbles wafting from a neighbor’s back yard. They immediately put a smile on my face. It was like driving into a party! It almost made me want to find my own bubble wands (yes, there are still some in my basement, somewhere) and join the fun. Who says only kids should blow bubbles?? 🙂
