Entopic Graphomania

This is Card Stock printed with sentences.  Some of the sentences end with exclamation points.  I placed a red dot on each point, connected the points, filled some of the spaces in.
I plan on trying this on a map, on discarded book page & more.
From Dictionary.com:  Entopic Graphomania is a surrealist method in which dots are made at the sites of impurities in a blank sheet of paper, and lines are then made between the dots.

Random Drawing Prompt Game

New Game for the Fall
Random Drawing Prompt Game
Found the instructions on this blog:  
Drawing Exercises
At first, I started rapidly writing down Adjectives, Nouns & Verbs.  The result seemed like complete nonsense.  It should be a fun creative challenge that you can't wait to play, so I started over. Finally, happy after the 3rd or 4th try, going through all the cards, playing and revising.
3 Printed pages with instructions on Card Stock.  25 Adjectives, 25 Nouns, 25 Verbs.  Shuffle each stack separately, then draw one card from each pile and put them next to each other, forming a phrase.  Then draw the phrase.  Avoid writing words with the drawing.

Soft & Silky Dough

Soft & Silky Dough
Easy 2 ingredient dough

2 Cups Cornstarch
1 Cup Hair Conditioner
Optional - Food Coloring



Tips:  
*Wear gloves to add food coloring.
Once the color is mixed, it seems to stay in.

*Don't add more Cornstarch.  It will be really sticky, keep mixing and the texture will change.

*This dough is sensory heaven.  The texture is silky and the smell of the conditioner (green apple in this case) was pleasant but it will leave a spot on the play surface.

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
