Make it Monday #136, a school project and a give-away

Textured Stamping is featured on Make it Monday. Ashley came up with this cool technique of moving the stamp pad on the stamp or vice versa before stamping it on paper. You do need a silhouette stamp for that - don't have too many of those in my Papertrey stash....


I used the Watercolor Wonder set, the sentiment is Think Big Favorites. I used pigment inks for this - thought they would "smear" better....
Her is a close- up - you can see the texture better:



I am also linking this up with Seize the Birthday - anything birthday


--X--

And now I want to share a school project with you that my son and I did together last week. The ideas was his, so was the design - I just helped with the details.....

The project was to make a game about cells - it work similar to Candy land. We made some action card - the yellow ones and some knowledge cards - the white ones. The aim of the game is to collect all the necessary cell organelles - the one who gets them first wins!
(Note that the board is recycled cardboard...)


Today he got his grade back
110 - whohoo!

I cut the chromosomes, the mitochondria and the vacuoles from left over rubber snippets - the rest is from various stamping companies. Isn't it cool how stamping comes in handy for so many things in life....

I am linking this up with the Snippets playground - used sooo many snippets here, but its not really a serious entry, but its a PLAYGROUND, so why not?

Wanna share in the fun and post some school projects you did with your kids on your blog of flickr? Link your projects in the comment section and I'll draw a random winner and raffle of this stamp set among the participants at the beginning of next month - same time as my blog anniversary candy:


It does not need to be a new project - just one you did with your kids for school at some time in the past - no other requirements :)

The card is so artistic, Cornelia. Fun technique.

A big congrats to your son for the 110 grade and for making such a fantastic game. So clever and interesting. :-)

Loved your bright textured card. Looks like a very modern art piece one would see in a big museum. Well done. Also well done on the science project. What a wonderful way to teach this subject to your son. Great job to both of you, and I'm not surprised at his 110! Congratulations on a fantastic project.

Tolle Karte! Dieses Set steht auch auf meiner Wunschliste...
Das Spiel von deinem Sohn ist ja sehr originell und gut gemacht. Kein Wunder, dass er 110 dafür bekommen hat.
