ABC Wednesday -I is for Igloo

This week at ABC Wednesday, I is the letter of focus.

I is for igloo - the winter structure built from snow blocks by the Inuit.

It is an amazing feat of ingenuity - to create a warm abode from snow and ice, and usually in a relatively short time. Inuit  still use igloos when hunting.

Here's a fascinating video showing how an igloo is built.

ABC Wednesday - D

This week at ABC Wednesday, D is the letter of the week.

D is for Diamond - usually considered a girl's best friend.

But it is also shows what pressure can do - it can be destructive but pressure also created diamonds.
The tag I created show how precious metals/gems are created - just as we are often refined by the pressures and stresses of life.

ABC Wednesday - C is for Crayon

This week at ABC Wednesday, the letter of  focus is C.

C is for crayon.

Crayons are a necessary art tool for young artists and still enjoyable for adults.

Yet, the nature of the variety of crayons and colours lends itself to life and the quote I used reflects this.

The following quotes reflect this as well:

Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.       Allen Klein

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.  Robert Fulghum

I consider myself a crayon... I may not be your favorite color but one day you'll need me to complete your picture.  Lauryn Hill

ART on Friday

It's been a couple of weeks since I shared - July has been a busy month. It was nice to get away last week but now am back home and back to routines.
Here are a few challenges I have been working on:

Sunday Postcard Art
The theme at Sunday Postcard Art this week was "Cats".

I still miss our Fluffy who was 21 when she died - 6 years ago now. Here's one of my favourite shots of her, that graced our local paper!

Tag Tuesday
The theme at Tag Tuesday is "Nautical/Seaside." i couldn't resist this quote"

Take a Word Challenge
The theme at Take a Word Challenge is "Beauty".
I had already painted this lily - felt it worked well with the quote.

The 2 month ICAD challenge is still on - here are the last 4 I created:

Here are some flowers to share:
