I promised you some photos of the donkey bombing...


...and here they are:


Tammy made individual poppies for each of the fallen
soldiers from WWI for the ground beneath the donkey's feet.

Tammy Bradford (Museum Manager Extraordinaire), Lynne Mizera and me (missing from the photo is my John,
who was taking it - he did all the research for the project, as well as some stapling to boot!)

Donkey Bombing complete
And on another note, I was fondling ribbons in my ribbon stash this past week, and was inspired to create this video using a particularly lovely patterned ribbon, brayer, gel plate and some paints.  


As always, when I get going with the gel plate it's really hard to stop.  And you know I have a very large stash of ribbons, right?  This could get crazy!!!


And if I've got a large stash of ribbons right now, what's going to happen when I start looking/shopping for patterned ones?  Heaven help us!

    1. I'm loving the impact it has; it was a brilliant idea on Tammy's part, and I was delighted to be a part of it.

  2. That is such a great thing with the banner and all the individual poopies! Great! And wow - what a fantastic idea - you always inspire us to new things ... never thought of using a ribbon that way...cooool!

    1. I very much enjoyed being a part of the banner memorial, Susi. And thanks for the kudos on the video - that was a hoot (well, apart from being mechanically challenged when it came to dismantling the brayer :D ).

  3. The title Donkey bombing doesn't do justice to the meaning behind the event but I guess otherwise it is appropriate. - well done all three of you!

    1. Agreed, Val, but since the banner is in no way labelled as a Donkey Bombing, I think that's OK. :D It was a great idea, and a privilege to be part of it.

  4. What a sweet and thoughtful project, it turned out very well. And your ribbon prints are lovely as always. I am amazed at all the different ways you create, as my son would say you are the "Mac-daddy Chicken Rocker" and that's as good as it gets at our house. Have a Great one.

    1. Thanks on both counts, Deann...I love your son's saying - I might have to steal that one! Happy weekend to you and your fam, my friend. xo

  5. Looking lovely, Win. A fitting memorial.
    Gorgeous papers, too. I'm coveting that large gelli-plate but I can't justify the expense and the space it would take up in my tiny studio :)

    1. Thanks on both counts, Tracy...and I have to tell you that I love the larger gel plate. I'm fortunate to have such a large studio because, truly, I'd be lost without a plate that totally covers a standard sheet (8 1/2 by 11 inches here). It sits pretty near permanently on my drawing table!

  6. Oh, I love this unique donkey, Win.
    And your papers are simply amazing!!!!!!!!!!
    Hugs, my friend.

    1. Thanks, Mia - the donkey sculpture is part of a regional sculpture initiative, and it's a favourite place for all sorts of 'bombings', from flowers to earmuffs, depending on the season. Thanks for the kudos on the papers - that was a fun printing session!
