I really like some of the specimen art that has been floating around the internet these days.
It was always on my "want to do" list.
So, with fall here, I decided to make one with trees.
First, I decided to upcycle a grocery bag for my background.
(Plus, this was all about not spending any money!)
The trees were punched from a magazine.
Then, I decided the grocery bag did not provide enough contrast.
So, I painted the background (grocery bag) with browns and red.
(I used D's art kit. He was not at home at the time!)
I like how it turned out so much, I think I will do one for each season.
Plus, I think it is good for my children to see me being creative.
