We’ve written this so many times before… Creativity is all around us, all the time. Sometimes the most inspiring art we find is made from old books, garbage, used up office supplies or anything else unexpected that we might find around us on a daily basis. You don’t have to have a lot of money, and you don’t have to go shopping if you want to make something special. Just open your mind to what you already have that’s just waiting for you to discover it.
These precious footprints made from rocks are a perfect example. If you and your kids want to create something while walking in nature near a stream or rocky area, this might be the perfect idea for you.
You can simply place rocks together to form unique footprints. Each one will be as unique as our own footprints. Iain Blake created all these footprints for a photography series called Stone Footprints. As you see in the pictures, he didn’t just create adult-looking footprints. He also included baby footprints and even what looks like bear pawprints. If you check out his photostream, you’ll see that these aren’t the only kind of footprints he’s made. I never knew footprints could be created so many different ways. If you want to do this for yourself, the process seems simple. You just find a big rock (or smooth stone like the ones Iain used) for the foot part. Then you find 5 smaller rocks (in the correct sizes) for the five toes. Then you take your iPhone out of your pocket and snap a pic. You can leave them there for other people to find. What a fun afternoon project that would be!
