I loved the way she represented the nest in her own energetic style... which led me to reconsider some plans I'd been making.
I'd recently bought a pile of blank teatowels with the plan of getting our daughter to stamp them with potato prints, and using them as presents or present wrapping for some family and friends. I'd come up with some design ideas, and had thought about ways to get our daughter to put the prints in the "right" spots on the tea towels...
Then I saw the nest, and realised that would be a GREAT design - and her own design too.
So out came the tea towels and a brown fabric marker - and nests were made.
I reprised my "one cut" stamp making technique - this time with an egg shaped potato. The (opped) corn cob holders were a plan to keep child hands away from paint (it actually worked!).
These are a few of the results - I love the way she took the nest idea and made her own modifications along the way...
(I think I had similar help to Jess with my photography this week!)
I did decide to have a play with another potato print design - I like these clouds, but they were harder work, with closer supervision, and occasional instances of me completely taking over...
She also got to make a couple of her own designs - I think she really appreciated being trusted with these "fancy tea towels" (even though they were pretty cheap!) and did a great job!
