M is for markers - those fun art tools for adding colour. There are so many different kinds but my favourites are sharpies. Not only are they permanent colour, but they come in different sizes.
Bloom is my OLW for 2015 and I am starting a series of cards for quotes on the word. I created this first card with just markers.
The other cards are part of a challenge on gratitudes ( 30 Days of Gratitude) that I am taking part in. Each day I create a card and then list 5 things I am grateful for on the back.
Here are a couple that I used markers on:
For Apr. 6
For Apr. 7
As I created the cards this afternoon, I grabbed my camera and captured my dining room table where I was working on the cards. Sharing one's workspace is the weekly meme at "Stamping Ground", Julia's wonderful blog.
I used to create full moon dreamboards regularly for several years and found them a way to look to the month ahead. I still create a dreamboard for each new season.
Jamie Ridler hosts the creations of dreamboards and much information to create them
This month I decided I needed to renew this tradition - to focus on the questions as I pulled phrases, words and pictures and then create a dreamboard.April 4th was the Full Mink Moon.
This month I focused on these questions:
What dreams need tending? What is stirring in your heart?
This is the board I created:
Bloom is my OLW and after a webinar last night on Maya Angelou the phrase "Dream Big" kept playing in my mind. It made it to the dreamboard. I aim to write and create daily.
I need to embrace healthy habits and dance more. But I must embrace or seize the day - carpe diem!
It's time once again to share our workspaces, the meme hosted by Julia at "Stamping Ground."
Stop by there - for a wonderful glimpse of art spaces from around the world.
Here is my work space on my dining room table. I created the backgrounds for these cards (gelli prints) last week and put several together tonight.
In the photo, I have finished two (at the top) and am working on several more.
I have a lot of used stamps - many of which are of famous people. I am taking part in the "A to Z Challenge" and my theme is art cards with quotes by famous people.. (Check here for my theme reveal - I will be sharing at my other blog)
