in less than a week! Where did the summer go? Sofia is off to grade 1, with her crazy list of 20 no.2 HB pencils, 4 40-oz glue sticks, 8 32-page Hilroy notebooks, and on, and on, and on.... this isn't kindergarten anymore for sure! And Thomas - heading into his 2nd year of preschool...with his tiny preschool backpack and 1 kleenex box... I'm excited to see what they'll both learn this year!
In honor of the whole back-to-school rush, I used this week's MIM technique to create my faster-than-lightning bus. Sofia was appalled when she spied my out-of-the-lines coloring! I think she might have even muttered to herself, something about how she never colors out of the lines anymore... ha! Kids!
Just for that, here's a even more close-up view of the bus:
I used "generation stamping" to make it look like the bus is in motion. I inked up the bus only once and stamped it at full strength on the right. Then, without re-inking, I stamped it again a few more times, each time moving my hand slightly to the left. I think the freestyle coloring works really well with the generation stamping technique!
Have a great Friday, and a wonderful weekend!
