GereaKaye had an end of the year project. You remember, the one I forgot, or rather had the date due wrong. It was to display her favorite book and put the scenes in her own words. I must make a confession, we typed the scene explanations for her.
Well since we will be dis assembling it to move onward and upward for the summer, I thought I would take some pictures so you could see that once again the nut does not fall far from the tree. As I was taking pictures, I realized how many different techniques she had used.
Heidi's Grandfather walking in the mountains. (cotton batting wrapped armature and sewn felt clothes, torn paper collage mountains, recycled paper pulp in a cookie mold sun).
The soft rolls for the grandmother. Heidi put them in her apron pocket. Some idiot child stole and ate the roll, ick, blech. (baking, embroidery and cloth assemblage).
Clara's wheelchair is tossed over the cliff and she is forced to walk to see the flowers. (tissue paper flowers made I don't know how, GK made it up as she went along but check out the tiny ones, I swear she slays me).
Clara's Grandmother's hand giving Peter money to buy the penny whistle at the fair because he had been honest with her. (sculpture, I love this hand with the cute chubby fingers made of air dry clay and the penny whistle made from a straw and money buttons).
This is all placed on my painting lazy susan so that it would "display" well. Good job I'd say but then that would be bragging and I ain't dun that before, huh?
