Everyone loves Eric Carle books. He does his illustrations by making collages of paper painted in different colors and textures.
So first we did some painting. (Actually the Mr. did this with Hendrix while he let me sleep in, his own idea. Yeah, he's pretty good.)
Then I cut out circles and various flower shapes from his paintings. The textures look so cool on these.
I drew the stems and added the ribbon and a cute picture. I think they were a hit!
Has anyone ever been to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art? I would looooooove to go. We are going to Boston in July, but I don't know if I could convince the rest of my family to make the 2 hour drive. If you've been, would it be worth it?
