A busy week up until tonite....or should I say this morning!....since it is 4AM!! BUT...after watching a video from our GUT ART CLASS on tracing paper....I had to go up to the studio to play! It has been too many days since I last got my hands on some art supplies. This was just a drawing I had that I didn't like but used it to experiment with stamped tissue paper (I didn't have any tracing paper like the video suggested. It was nothing new, but just the right ingredients to play a little. I used Derwent aquarelle pencils, then applied stamped tissue paper with gel medium, then dried it, then played with the color using Caran D Ache water crayons. Just simple , but simply fun and wonderful feeling to play with color freely creating. Also I had two new visitors come to my house for a vacation!! They are cousins....Stanley and Stanley! ....yes, they have the same name! ....Even their first name which is FLAT!!....yes, FLAT STANLEY...'s are here for only a week! They can't get over all the interesting junk and old stuff I have in this house!! One of them climbed up on our old Ohio Buck deer head for a picture, then the cousin Flat Stanley got all excited that I had a toy antique house that he almost fit in!! THEN, Stanley discovered an antique doll chair that he fit perfectly in!! These guys kept me pretty busy taking all those photos!! I told them I had to work a little, so they sat by me while I sewed Montsey's curtain for her room and the other Stanley just had to pose in front of my art! He thinks I'm famous....I get a giggle out of that. I actually like having them around, does my ego....uh, I mean my HEART good! Tomorrow they are going to the garden with Mr Peck and I to check on the newly planted vegetables....they will get to ride the golf cart, my garden vehicle....Flat Stanley thinks he will get to drive....we'll see. Then they can give the miniature donkey and little cow an apple to eat. No, they won't ride the donkey, as he is not trained for Flat Stanleys. I'm glad they came together to entertain one another .... they are cousins you know! Dick promised them a ride in the 1946 Piper Cub too....it will be a long afternoon I think.... Blessings to you all....and thanks to those fourth grade girls, Montsey and Angela, (they are cousins too!) for sending me their Flat Stanley to visit us!
