Thread: Index Card Art

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
~Cheryl Gee has been a needleworker since childhood.  She had a creative grandma who taught her how to embroider and cross-stitch on cloth.  These days Cheryl stitches on paper with a needle, thread or a sewing machine.

~Cheryl Gee returned to her favored art medium for "Iconically Angelic":  cut paper collage created from images in a couple of Harper's Bazaar magazines from the public library sale shelf.  Twenty five cents each.  Heavenly!

Marbled Silhouttes: Wordless Wednesday & School Kid Art

 
~Cheryl Gee was particularly intrigued by this school kid art mural inspired by Jan Pienkowski. 
 
Students defined setting then selected a setting for their art piece.  The students marbled paper by scrapping chalk pastels into a shallow tray of water.   Because the chalk is less dense than water it will float on top of the water. When paper is placed on top of the water it lifts up all the chalk dust.  So amazing.  So fun for the student artists!

Van Stop/Van Gogh: This Teacher Is Creative!

My school's art teacher has morning cross walk duty.
Look what she made with a stop sign and a poster of Vincent Van Gogh.
She's so funny!
 
~Cheryl Gee is a school librarian and artist always on the pursuit of creativity.  Sometimes she finds it and sometimes she doesn't.
