Curious J was here this past weekend , he spent Saturday night with us. He was in a creative mood and kept telling me he wanted to make something. So we pulled out this book I bought at the thrift store a few weeks ago , he loved it and decided our first creation should be " Funky Junk " sculpture.
I pulled out the 2 kitchen junk drawers and we begin to create. We created " Funky Junk " people. Dh created the one to the left , I created the middle man and Curious J created the happy camper on the right. I did pull 2 of the corks from my art supplies , but everything else came from the junk drawers.
Sunday was a rainy day , so we spent the day inside playing board games , video games and creating more " Funky Junk ". I created the plastic person , Curious J created the neat little sculpture to the right.
But we weren't finished creating , he saw something else in the book he wanted to make. They were called collage sculpture or time capsules and he chose to make one about his earlier years. We put a beanie baby monkey in there to represent his nickname sake , Curious George. He liked watching Curious George when he was a toddler and his exceptional curiosity made me start calling Curious J. He put a plastic link that he had as a baby and a small ball in there , but Little Froggy made claim on the ball when he saw it (LOL). We haven't sealed it yet , he may add a few more things before we seal it. I really enjoyed having him here this weekend , since he's in school we don't get to spend much time together.
