Our post-it note art for the fourth 9 weeks this school year is from the movie My Neighbor Totoro. It seemed to be a bigger undertaking than usual. I think the main reason for this was because we had to alter the patterns quite a bit to fit our windows. This always presents a challenge to keep the scale the same and make sure the finished art is still recognizable. Connolly does a great job with this and usually eyeballs the changes. I, on the other hand, prefer to be able to follow the pattern row by row.
Time wise, the three forest spirits were created in about six total hours.
A few videos of the process: (It's always so much fun to see it finally come together!)
