For my page today for AJJ 'Nature's Wonders'
I couldn't resist using this fun Chimpanzee from my calendar from July which was when I made this and then having dismantled it kept thinking it was August.
Background created using Amsterdam acrylic paints and a Dutch Doobadoo 'burlap' mask. Monkey stamps by Creative Expressions and coloured with pencils. Various alphabet stamps used for words.
CHIMPANZEES are one of a small number of animals that use tools. They sometimes use twigs or grass to push into small crevices that other wise they could not reach to be able to get at Termites. They can use rocks to open nuts. I think that's pretty amazing!
and then for fun I thought I would go a step further and create a second version with some digital enhancement.
I took the photo of my finished project into 'Fotosketcher' software and gave it a cartoon effect with texture. Hope it made you smile too.
Hope you have a fun day.
Thanks for stopping by
