It's the year of the flannel board. Between Pete's Christmas gift (a flannel board with nativity pieces) and Cass' piece in the 9th International Art Competition, I have flannel board fever. So, General Conference had me drawing our first flannel board story. We just finished reading the Book of Mormon as a family (whoop whoop) and are about to start again, so we are telling the story of Moroni, then leading into the first vision.
Process: I took a big piece of flannel, fused it (wonder under) with a pice of muslin, gessoed, drew with pencil, colored with colored pencils, cut out the pieces, and it's story time. Next time I should let the kids help...
I'm thinking of starting a flannel story exchange. Any takers?
Spring Break is over. I sent my sweet babies back to school after 17 days of togetherness. It was hard to let them go, but we had lots of fun while they were home. Here is what we have to show for it.
This used to be a CD shelf in Gavin's office. I spray painted it turquoise. Then, together, we drew and painted on the back panel. Now it resides in the studio and holds art supplies, of course!
We also mod podged these little clip boards for the car. One must not be too far from drawing supplies at any given moment.
