CREATIVE TUESDAY!

Creative Tuesdays is a fabulous blog, that gives us a prompt every 2 weeks, to do with as we wish.  I, of course, look like a 3rd grader next to these amazing women!  Our prompt was "Spring".   And, with that said, look at what I did.

I know, your 5 year old brought home  this very same picture!!
I tried to actually draw a spring.  But, it looked even more ridiculous.  So, I went with the idea that tulips are one of the first flowers to pop up.  Even when there is still snow on the ground.  All of the bulb plants, I think?  I used my new, AWESOME, watercolor crayons to make the sky and grass, and I used pretty pink for the butterfly stencil I made myself (thankyouverymuch), but my favorite part is the paper tulips that I made.

I cut out each piece on card stock, then cut out each piece of book paper and used a mini glue dot to stick them togethher.  I used pink ink again, and rolled down the book paper pieces.  Me, thinking I'm a genius for coming up with this idea, soon realized it would take 7 weeks to make a whole field of them, which was my original idea.  So, plan B.  I made 2.  And used green ric rak ribbon for the stem.

As I am not an actual sketchbook artist, I did my very best!!!  I REALLY wanted to add doodles, and a frame around the page, and, and, and but, I stoped myself and left my 3rd grade style picture as it is.

I really can't wait to hear what you think.  Because I've already told you what I think!!!!!  But, this group of talented people really inspire me, to want to try to do somethig different, for me.  Hopefully, in time, I will find far more creative ways to do my own art.  I am looking forward to that!!

Have an awesome day!  I will return with my "Art Journal Wednesday" post tomorrow!!
