Natural Beauty: Express Yourself

The Spark:
Get out in nature and look around.  No, really look around you.  Take note of what you see from the clouds floating by up in the sky above, to the towering trees that you walk by every day, to the changing grasslands, plant life and the underbrush.  Take a few breaths in and just relax.  Did you notice that autumn is all around you?  With the change of every season comes a change in the natural materials that you see nature 'using' and 'getting rid of.'  Nature isn't actually getting rid of anything, it's just using it in a different way.  It's natures natural cycle and it's visible all around you.

Find a bag or basket to collect natures raw materials that you see during autumn.  You might say that a twig is a twig, a rock is a rock, or a leaf is a leaf.  But, if you look at the raw material in nature at this time of year you can notice a difference in the way they look, how they feel, and how accessible they are to you.  A leaf, for example, doesn't look the same in autumn.  It feels very different and more of them are definitely accessible to you as they fallen to the ground.  What else can you find?

It's time to express yourself!  Creating a work of art is a fantastic process and, if someone doesn't interfere with your process, it's all you.  Begin your quest if you are interested in using autumns natural materials to create an incredible work of art.  Your on your own.  There are no jars of paint, no pencil crayons, no paper, scissors, glue or chairs neatly tucked around a craft table.  It's just you and nature. What will you do?  What will you create?  Ready, set, CREATE!
