★ marian for president ★

marian's posters are BiG.
like, 3 ft x 4 ft big.

today after school, she & her friends
hung ten giant posters and lots of fliers.
{thank you for helping, nancy, rachel, mackenzie, lauren, ashley, & sara!}
{thank you grandma, for the colored paper you gave us years ago!}


here's a behind-the-scenes look
at the cardboard stencils
the stars were cut from cereal boxes
and spray painted gold
{all spray paint used was just what we had in our garage}
for this project, we used materials that
were recycled {cardboard boxes}
or things that we had on hand
{leftover spray paint & colored paper}.
the only things we bought were the photos.


there were lots of artistic imperfections
and happy accidents
that we thought were especially cool.
do they qualify as wabi-sabi?


for president!

she has given so much of her time
to student council this year
as freshman class president.
she wants to continue 
as sophomore class president so much,
and i really hope she wins!

the election is tuesday, march 18.
i'll keep you posted.
