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.



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

ABC Wednesday - and WOYWW


A brand new round of ABC Wednesday starts this week.  Please join the fun! So many possibilities to choose from.

I have decided to once again carve a stamp and create an art tag with a quote for each letter.


A is for angel

I have collected angels for years - both angel ornaments (which now overflow on a tree) and statues. Here are just a few from my collection:



I carved a stamp of angel wings when I found the quote about angels' Wings.



Be sure to check here to see what others around the world did for A and just what theme they are planning for this new round.



WOYWW

Each week Julia Dunnit of Stamping Ground encourages us to share what we are working on and what the state of our work spaces are.

When I had finished the tag above, my dining room table or art table looked like this:



Here is a look inside my new stamping journal as I keep track of the stamps I carve and the tags I create.

IT's Friday and the first full day of summer!

The theme for Sunday Postcard Art is "birdhouses"



Take a Word Challenge
For Take a Word Challenge the them is "Mostly Black and White"




ICAD
ICAD is the brainchild of Daisy Yellow - and is a fun, easy challenge to get you creating more often - using cheap index cards.

ART on Friday


It's that time of the week when I share some of the art and photography have been working on this week - especially for the challenges.

Sunday Postcard Art
The theme at Sunday Postcard Art this week is "seashells"


I had some old paper placemats with seashells and I have been reading Anne Morrow Lindbergh's memoir "Gift From the Sea" - seemed like an obvious match!


Try it On Tuesday
The theme at TIOT is "For the Boys". I gathered up some photos of my two boys and came up with this piece.




Take a Word Challenge

"Shades of Purple was the theme at "Take a Word Challenge.
 I used one of my ICAD cards.

ART on Friday - a day late


Here it is, the end of the week - and here are a few things I've worked on this week.


Take a Word Challenge
At "Take a Word Challenge" the theme is "June Brides". As I thought about it, I knew I wanted to use my Mom and I - ven though neither of us married in June. Our weddings were decades apart, yet we are united by love.




Creative Every Day
The theme for June at Creative Every Day is "Stars". This quote by Teddy Roosevelt has always appealed to me:



Sunday Postcard Art
The theme at Sunday Postcard Art is "games"





ICAD
At Daisy Yellow, the ICAD challenge is in full swing.
Here are a few more of my index card creations, inspired by words, text, typography.

Hard to believe it is already the first of June. Where has the time gone?

Here are a few pieces I worked on this week - for some challenges.

ICAD
ICAD is a yearly challenge in June and July, is also a daily challenge using index cards. I've taken part now for several years and really enjoy this. Daisy Yellow provides themes and ideas and lots of help to spark your creativity.
This week the theme is on using letters, font, words.
My first card is a focus on what I hope to accomplish this month:



Sunday Postcard Art
The theme for Sunday Postcard Art is "Faces". Took me longer to find so many faces than to create the card!



Take a Word Challenge
For Take a Word Challenge, the theme is "Two". I tried different pairs, but settled on roses.
