Where are you, Muse of Creativity? Why do you avoid me so? Case-in-point: My attempt at Mother's Day Creativity.
Now, about the details. There are supposed to be 3 pots per windchime, strung together by clothesline. So each pot must be wonderfully and artistically personalized. Check. I have nice handwriting. I'll just paint everyone's grandmotherly moniker along the rim. And I'll use the kids' thumbprints as the base of some outdoorsy-insect-motif. Wait...did I just consider kids and paint? Apparently I didn't consider it and my artistic abilities enough. How do you paint a ladybug, anyway? (Confession time: I actually had to ask/double check. Are they red with black spots or black with red spots? Answer: the latter.)
Well, below are some images of what I have done so far. Rob's thumbprints became my pitiful ladybugs. Caroline's smeared thumbprints made the "perfect" body for my dragonflies. The project is not finished yet. Because I have 48 hours left and I hope I can redeem this, I am posting it now. I'll update with the finished look in time. Comments? Suggestions? Feel free.
'til then folks! Bye.
