Tissue Paper Flowers

Happy Spring! These tissue paper flowers are simply layered tissue paper on wax paper. Tissue paper is a great medium for any age and can easily be used in place of wet mediums.  The thin layers of paper offer a wonderful light quality in a window and a fun experiment with color mixing for little people, and big people too!

Saturday, March 5th Protest in Wisconsin

I borrowed this historical phrase from the late printmaker Lorriane Schneider. This Phrase, Originally "War is not healthy..." was in response to the Vietnam war. Here is a bit of information: It was interesting to be stopped by people who were my age during Vietnam and experiencing nostalgic feelings towards the imagery.

Thank you

Inside the Capitol Rotunda people chanted together, many of the leaders were children and young adults.

Hello, Wisconsin!
Young, old, rich, poor, educated, uneducated, for one common case to protect the roots of democracy in Wisconsin. Protecting our teachers, to protect our future!  YOU MAKE ME PROUD WISCONSIN!  Stop. Look. and Listen Walker!

I've been doing some research on eco-villages in the US and the Dancing Rabbit seems like a great place to live and grow with others...  If anyone has any information about eco-villages, please let me know! Check out their blog too...
