today was exactly how fall is suppose to feel, cold enough to have to wear a sweater, but not enough to have to wear a winter coat with many layers. my thought to be a "jam-packed busy" day, ended up being freed for some open time due to an afternoon class of mine being canceled! i have a huge presentation for one of my education classes tomorrow about my internship, so there is still a lot of finishing touches i need to place on it. with this extra time i was planning on, i ventured to the waldo antique store, where i looked around at items for sale. i had not been here in over two years, so i thought the flea market was open whenever the store was open, but it's only open on saturdays! which was a giant let-down, since that is the best part (and the part that i can afford!). i am now planning out my saturday and making sure that i go back when it is open.
with some leaves i had picked through at a park, i've been figuring out the process of leaf stamping. it's actually extremely difficult to make them turn out the way i want! later in the week, i plan on picking up a canvas from the art store next to my loft, to make a larger print of random assortment of leaves that will be stamped. i'll probably be using all neutral colors, and i may even try and attach a few leaves i have hand-pressed.
readers, what kind of art/projects/diys do you make with natural items?
