piper's class auction project

I helped with Piper's class project 
annual big auction fundraiser which took
place last eve.
I had a vision and Ashley, Piper's teacher
let me go with it.
 I was inspired by this piece of art 
I found on pinterest.
I loved the circles, neon colors
 Since the children were studying spring flowers,
I thought we could make stamps of their drawings + print 
using neon colors.
Ashley had children draw still life drawings 
of pansies, hyacinths, daffodils & tulips.
 Jessica helped carve the children's drawings in rubber to make stamps.
She's an expert!
{she made a stamp for Piper's birth announcement}
dining table turned carving/printing station
 children printed with the stamps Jess & I carved from their sweet drawings

 Jess + Olivia printing
 Each child printed on a 
5x5 inch piece of off white thick paper
one each

I brought finished prints to 
Gregg at Rockwell Gallery in Wilton
to frame in a grid.
Gregg is an artist.  His artwork is usually grid-style
so he knew exactly what I envisioned.
He also helped me pick out
a distressed whitish, greyish frame
+ a grey mat to mount prints on.
 The final piece
went to the highest bidder last eve for
Thank you 
to Ashley for the opportunity to help
to Jessica for helping with carving + printing with children
to Gregg at Rockwell Gallery in Wilton
for the perfect framing job!
