Stamping a City Scene

I'm getting ready for the Creativity Fair this weekend at Steamboat's Bud Werner Memorial Library. I'm excited! It's part of the Steamboat Book Feast, a festival of children's books this Saturday May 9th. Check out the schedule- Brian Floca and Avi are doing presentations! Here is a nice article from The Steamboat Today about the festival.

The Creativity Fair is aimed at the younger kids with arts and crafts, face painting, and storytelling. I'm going to be helping the kids do some stamping. I've been cutting cars, trucks, people, dogs, cats, and birds out of foam and sticking them on blocks. The foam prints really well with stamp pads. Here are some test prints with the blocks from my sketchbook.

Here are more blocks along with part of the scene I painted. 

And here's the whole scene. I am having to restrain my self from stamping on it right now. It's just calling out for some cars driving on that road! I'll be sure to share some photos and let you see how it looks once the kids are done with it.

If you are in Steamboat, please come and play at the library from 10-12 this Saturday, May 9th!
