Multimedia leaves

07 September 2012

Our final craft projects for arbor week ... this time we delve into mixed media.

When planning ideas, workloads and schedules I tend to ‘leave the lists’ to my beloved co-author, so I decided to surprise her here with this project called ‘list the leaves’ as a canny twist as well as a mixed media procedure list. You can make up your own procedure list for yourself or for a painting group. If you are ever stuck for ideas, this is fun to do and a good way of channelling ideas, processes and pieces into a single creative outcome.

Resources shadow top Pewter tree song trilogy

Pewter tree song trilogy

06 September 2012

More for arbor week ... this time one of Sandy Griffith's pewter artworks – with full step-by-step instructions so you too can do it!

Two trees holding a forest full of creatures and things. If you look closely, you will find a singing bird, a listening chameleon, two spiderwebs, two worms, one snake, some life-giving raindrops and a few hearts; all hidden among exotic leaves and curly branches. You can make this very personal by adding your own favourite creatures, or by carving names and messages onto the tree trunks. The three frames complete the picture, but one will stand just as proudly on its own. With a bit of creative tweaking, you can continue the growth of the tree into more than a trilogy.
