Ok ladies, we need to wait until Friday as we will receive the challenges at the same time as the ladies on the retreat Smile I will update this post once they are posted Very Happy

For those of you that would like something in the mean time, here's one I selected from our sketch gallery



Here you go ladies, here are the retreat challenges :

1. Use green for 'Green Eggs and Ham'
-Use more than one image across your page in reference to a comic strip that Dr S wrote.
-Use leaves &/or flowers for the Lorax.

2. Journal in the 1st person for 'I saw it on Mulberry St
- use twine to represent the time Dr S worked for a company that had maritime links
- many of Dr S' books were illustrated in black and white with one or two other colours. Base your creation on this colour scheme.

3. Card .- use something hand drawn or hand coloured for the political cartoons he published during the war.
-Make it a Christmas fir the Grinch who stole Christmas.

4. We are using gelly plates this weekend. Use a stencil in some form.

5. We are also trying out the new Tom Holtz crayons... use a dry medium on your project... could be pencils, chalks, gelatos etc.
