I set these address labels aside to use for a label collage from MaryAnn's Art with Anything. But Maia wanted to use them to make her own stickers. Each label became a mini canvas for a small drawing.
These were worked on very diligently for some time. Most were drawn with a pen. Later, when a friend was over, they both decorated stickers with crayons.
And since stickers are meant to be worn on the body (right?), we all sported several for a while. Other stickers were used to decorate her animal stable, so I suppose she ended up doing the address label collage after all on her own terms.
And here are her animals, prancing in a meadow of playdough, with the decorated stable in the background.
I had some time to browse some of my favorite blogs last night, something I don't get to do as much as I would like these days. Here are a few of the wonderfully artful ideas I came across:
- Giant outdoor blackboards made by Amy at Angry Chicken
- An amazing tissue paper and glue collage made directly on a window at Filth Wizardry (I also love their giant reclaimed wooden blocks!)
- Cake pan printmaking at make. believe, found via paint cut paste (and it turned out that the cakepan printmaking was inspired by my own box frame printmaking! talk about funny loops of inspiration going around!)
- A great list of artful books for children by Sarah at Quince and Quire
- Nature crowns and bracelets at Maya*Made that we must, must, must make this weekend!
