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!!
