catalpa leaf

may 19

Alice's party was today: five extra girls, we took them to the airport and flew in little planes, and then came home and played games all afternoon. It was lovely.

This is a leaf from the catalpa tree around the corner.

I always forget that I get better results from simpler materials. This is purple Crayola fabric crayon, available anywhere. I also like the Pentel dye crayons, softer and squishier than the Crayola fabric crayons. The paint sticks smell nice, and are beautifully smooth, but they don't work for me the way I expect.
