Phantom Stallion E-Newsletter February 2009
Happy Valentine's Day!
Have you ever heard of potatoes with a heart? How about potatoes with a horse?
If you'd like to make your own Valentines this year, or if you're just looking for a fun, inexpensive EQUINE art form, try potato stamps!
1 potato, cut in half
Have someone who is comfortable with cutting or carving trim around the shape of the horse or heart and you'll have a stamp.
Dip in paint or press against stamp pad. Add glitter if you have some.
Decorate construction paper card.
Variation: If you don't have a horse cookie cutter, consider drawing a horse and surrounding it with hearts.
Tip from Terri: "I'm a writer, not an artist & my potato stamps don't always look like they're supposed to look. So a heart might end up being a rock or plant and then I'd draw a horse jumping over it! The potato print still adds color and interest to the picture."
Another idea: Check out this website http://www.horses-and-ponies.com/printables/valentines.shtml for wonderful horse and pony printable Valentines!
This just in . . .
Terri wants to celebrate YOU on a brand new PhantomStallion.com page called READING ROCKS. There, she'll feature photos of readers READING.
Include a horse in the photo -- a real or plush horse, you wearing a horse tshirt or standing in front of a horse poster, reading a horse book, etc. -- to be eligible for one of 25 autographed copies of a PHANTOM STALLION or WILD HORSE ISLAND book.
No names or locations will be included to identify you and you'll only hear from Terri if you've won a book.
COMING SOON: Paniolo in Paradise contest. Win gifts from Dahana Ranch, Hawaii, home of the real Hoku
All afternoon and evening my imagination has been crowded with pictures of horses.
