Snowy Day Art

I've always loved the artwork on the inside cover of Ezra Jack Keat's The Snowy Day.
The colors are so beautiful. And the other day after we made our snow cone snowmen, I was cleaning off the snowflake stamps by rubbing them on a piece of paper. I loved what was left behind. It reminded me of The Snowy Day. So I used some foam blocks from our building center, dabbed them on the ink pad and then rubbed them across my paper. Then I used the snowflake stamps on top.
Not quite the same, but I liked it! So I called the kids over to try it.

I love when I accidentally discover a new way to create art!
