One of the many inspiring artists we discovered in Scandinavia was Swedish ceramicist, Lisa Larson. We loved how Larson, played with flower and leaf shapes to create creatures (pictured above). We wanted to use the same idea of creating a Scandinavian creature out of plant elements. I collected a variety of internet images and actual plant pieces that I scanned into the computer. Then came the fun part, arranging the elements to create an animal. The pieces I had worked nicely to make an owl. I then traced the owl I created with sharpies to make our Blomma Owl Girl’s Graphic Tee.
We thought it’d be a fun idea to collect leaves and flowers with your children and see what kind of creatures you can create. I found these amazing leaf creations (below) by kokokoKids over on My Barn Owl.
Just the other day I found these awesome leaf cut cars on The Art Room Plant.
We want to see what you create with your kids? Post them on our facebook page!
Back-to-school meant back-to-creating as the little citizens that submitted entries to our September Activity Book Contest wow-ed us with their unique styles and energetic art!
However, one little citizen stood out with his colorful monster picture. Congrats to Max who won this month’s Activity Book Contest! We thought his coloring was cool, textured and lots of fun!
However, we wanted to point out a couple of artists that made picking just one winner hard. Below are our two honorable mentions.
We loved Olivia’s viking; how cool is the beard?
And who could resist Eve’s skating monster? We love that she took the time to put in a background to boot!
Browse all the entries on our Flickr page.
