My Littlest Monkey is quite arty-farty. He's always constructing things with feathers and glitter and stones. He reckons he's going to be an artist when he grows up. Or an inventor. What got me going today was the fact that I've dug up my summer veggies and there's a blank canvas happening in the patches. Everything's looking a bit bare so I thought I might start on some of the projects I'd been planning for a while.
First up I got out the glue gun and stuck some broken mirror and coloured stones onto an old bit of piping I found in the garden months ago. I've been using these stones with great success in my drama classes for magic spells and messages left from fairies, so I was a little hesitant about sticking them permanently in my patch but I can always get more from the $2 shop. This is what I came up with.
