We've been learning a lot about ancient civilizations and one of the most favorite for third graders is EGYPT. Christian created an illustration of a mummy and various other pictures. I asked him if I could "Recycle his mummy" and he was excited. After he cut it out, I scanned it and printed it out, then added a bit more color with markers, then added "hieroglyphics" in the background. Can you identify all the justjohanna stamps used in this piece???
OK...So what an inspiration a piece of artwork from a child can be. Did you ever think of recycling something a young child has created??? Well, here's your chance. Ask your child to create a background for you. Use any stamps you want (I'm partial to justjohanna) to "RECYCLE" and "REPURPOSE" their art! If you don't have a child handy....Try using the hand you don't normally use and design a fun and colorful background image.
All you have to do is...Create a card for the challenge and leave a comment here with a link to your creation. You can enter any or all of the challenges as many times as you like until the cut off at midnight (PST time) on 4/20. The use of justjohanna stamps is encouraged, but not required.
These challenges will all be centrally located in the Earth Day forum
on the justjohanna message board. If you don't have your own blog, you can post your project in the justjohanna forum's gallery and link back that way! I will draw 1 Lucky winner randomly from my comments and that person will win a limited edition Earth Day 2008 stamp named "Al in space" which is created specially for this event! I will also select another winner from all my entries to win a special stamping prize from me! SO THAT MEANS TWO PEOPLE WILL WIN A PRIZE...ONE WILL WIN THE LIMITED EDITION JJ STAMP and ONE WILL WIN THE PRIZE FROM ME!!!
