Sunset





This weeks theme for Every Inchie Monday is Sunset. I knew immediately what I wanted to do because I used to teach fourth grade and we always did a sunset art project. To create the sunset, I would have the kids tear tissue paper into strips and overlap the edges and glue them down onto a piece of construction paper. Then with a piece of black paper they would cut out a landscape and always include a tree and that would be glued down on top of the tissue paper strips. They were always really colorful and looked great on the wall. So, I used a similar idea but instead of the tissue paper I took markers and colored a piece of felt and then cut the landscape from black felt and glued them together.

And I'll bet you never thought when you were doing those
art projects long ago that it would be an inspiration for your own art project and it would be lovely too!

I love the colorful texture created by your markers and felt! Great black touches too.

Felt eh? That's really resourceful! I love it. I hadn't thought of using felt on an inchie.

I love how the back contrasts with the colours behind.
