Nice of you to drop in!
Thought I’d get my geese out today.
I love them!
Thursday’s Blog is always blue,
so here’s a blue blog, just for you!
Stamp them on Theuva Card -
Black Archival’s best today;
Cutting them out would be too hard!
But Claritymasks have saved the day!
Load your brayer with Juniper ink
Roll it into the sky.
Green at the top ?? I hear you think -
But wait and I’ll tell you why...
The Juniper goes under the blue,
Denim on top is brill.
You end up with a fabulous hue -
a night sky with a cool chill.
Cut a Post-It to fit a word,
and place it at their feet.
Then add more blue from the bottom up;
it’s working out a treat!
Behind the birds we need some shade -
a make-up sponge is best;
Just smear and dab, don’t be afraid!
This is art - it’s not a test!!
Colouring geese is no simple task;
what colour are they? I’ll check.
Well let’s start by using the mask,
and sponge in an inky black neck!
Add some white to the black I think,
otherwise it’s too dark;
pencils work well on top of ink -
the result is a lot less stark.
Friendship is the word I’ll use
to tie this art together.
Geese are fiercely loyal you see -
amazing birds of a feather.
Geese pick friends to fly as a team;
they help each other in the air;
They take it in turns to take the lead
to save on wear and tear.
You see them flying in V-formation,
you hear them honking loudly;
it’s just their form of communication
as they travel south so proudly.
If a goose is sick and has to stop,
two friends will hold back too.
They’ll stay with their weak friend and be his prop,
This is a fact. This is very true.
We people think that 3’s a crowd,
but in Gooseworld this is so wrong!
They work as a group up there in the cloud
That’s what makes them so strong!
So the next time you hear the honking noise
and you look up to the V.
The one at the front is asking his friend
“please can you take over from me?”
We could learn so much from these wonderful creatures.
Love & Hugs,
