Do you remember that song? When I was a young girl, my mom would play that song on the piano while my sister and I would run about. The lyrics and notes became part of our background and part of our subconscious. I don't think I realized how much that song impacted me until recently.
A month or so ago, Rio's teacher asked me to help her school family, The Dolphins, out with a project. Each family consists of about 13 kids from all grade levels. They meet several times a week to learn life skills, to create community, and to celebrate each other. I love this aspect of her school, and she does too. So, back to the project. Every year, each family creates an art project for their annual auction fundraiser. Her teacher knew that I dabbled in fabric, so she asked if I'd be interested in helping out.
I had a large amount of extra firm interfacing that I thought would be perfect for the project, so one evening Brent and I set out to create the image. Brent is incredibly helpful in projects like this and I love when we collaborate creatively together. We hit a few speed bumps in the process when it came to our markings, so we ended up cutting out the sign and placing it atop a full, uncut piece of interfacing. I LOVE the 3-D effect that 'oops' gave us.
