Art Project: Summer School

Hey there, my friends! Can I just start out by saying technology is not my friend!? I have messed around forever on my blog the last three days; messing with my header, background, sidebar…I get it just right, then something messes up in the process, it looks great in the “preview” view, then when I get to the actual blog, it’s not right…what is that about!?!? I have to walk away for a minute…take a breather…then I’ll be back to mess with it some more. Gah!!
Ok, just had to get that out of my system.
I’m feeling a little lost in my blog life without my camera…it’s been two weeks without it. TWO!! They told me at the service place it could be up to three…Lord, help me. Without my camera I’m feeling uninspired. I love instagram, but instagram pics just don’t cut it after a while, you know? #practicingtheartofpatience….
So on to the post, right?? I have made a folder full of really fun art projects I’ve found on pinterest for the summer. We did our first one last week…hopefully we’ll get another done this week too. Here’s the link to this project.
I love Starry Night. It’s got to be one of my favorite works of art. I loved this project because it was simple and we had everything we needed.๏ปฟ

First, on black paper we “drew” Starry Night with regular Elmer’s glue and let it dry.  The next day we used our oil pastels fill in the colors. I love oil pastels because they go on that paper like butter and you can blend them together with your finger. We just followed the glue lines and filled in all the black space. I love how they turned out.๏ปฟ

I’ve had it this short, but not for a long time. I’m still getting used to it, but I love it :)๏ปฟ

    Your hair is stunning. The bangs are flattering, and I really like the length. I bet you are enjoying it, too!!!


  3. Loving your new 'do. Makes me wish mine was straight, but alas, the curls don't cooperate with that style. I always end up loving styles for people with straight hair and I simply don't have the time or patience to straighten it every day with a flat iron. Enjoy your new sassy style for summer!
