It's been years since I showed children in the classroom how to paint using colored tissue paper. So I thought I'd try some tissue paper art today because the ladies in one of my my art classes wanted to know how to do it. After I used the wet tissue paper to lay down the main colors, I used water soluble wax pastels to outline and fill in some of the details .
You may wonder why I chose butterflies and flowers as my subject matter in the middle of winter. I guess because I'm already looking forward to the spring...even though it's still many months away.
Although I enjoy waking up in the morning to find another layer of snow making everything white, I still remember how beautiful green grass is. I look forward to spring flowers and butterflies. I look forward to these new beginnings. But for right now I'll bloom where I'm planted.♥
