stamping a tree with tempera paint

Did Johnny Appleseed really wear a pan for a hat? What was it like to wander here and there for days, months and years all to plant seeds. He never gave up. I  doubt it was an easy breezy carefree journey. Why then do we give up so easily at the first sign of despair? Today I am working on a project for a wonderful cause and I hope I do well. Who am I kidding. I have tons of wonderful ideas. I’m so glad this tree is in the wise trees book.

notes:

  • the back of a bamboo brush works great as a stamp
  • a craft sponge brush too
  • oh maybe I should try using a soda cap to make a flower for my book
  • sounds good
  • anything that has a flat surface or not can be used as a stamp
  • test the paint and stamp first to get your desired texture
  • I love my color choice.
  • have nice contrast

 

Imagine all possibilities that are possible
