What's under your kitchen sink?
Here's what I found under mine -
some new art tools!
The flat kitchen sponge became a tool very similar to this one at Let's Explore.
I also used a rubber band to hold a piece of this sponge to a baby food jar for stamping (the sponge has patterns as you can see from the photo and I was curious to see how it would show up on paper).
Some tin foil was scrunched to make a stamper.
These are mesh bags in which oranges often come. I bunched it up and added a rubber band to hold it together.
The last tool shown here is a popsicle stick with a piece of scouring sponge attached by a rubber band.
Here's the resulting effect.
The cut up flat sponge.
A cube wrapped in tin foil (to protect against paint) and then wrapped in bubble wrap.
The foil stamper.
The scouring sponge on a stick (think "scritchy scratchy" strokes).
The mesh bag.
Her masterpiece using the tools.
The artist at work (after playing with the new tools, she just wanted to use the sponge roller).
