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.




ICAD
Daisy Yellow has an ongoing ICAD challenge for June and July. Here are some of the cards from this week. This week we were to use collage.

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.

ART on Friday


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.



Mixed Media Monthly Challenge
This will be the last challenge for Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. The theme this month is "Wrap It Up"

Time once again to share some of the art I have been creating this past week. It has been a busy "life" week, so art didn't happen much. But I did create for 3 challenges this week:


Sunday Postcard Art
This week the theme at Sunday Postcard Art was "Clowns":



Take a Word Challenge
The theme at Take a Word Challenge this week was "Balloons.


Tag Tuesday
For Tag Tuesday this week, the theme was "Locks and Keys". I was able to use one of the stamps I have carved.

I have only completed one small collage this week, but at least I did one.

ART on Friday/Saturday


Once again, my art sharing is a day late - but at least it's happening!

I took part in several challenges this week:

Sunday Postcard Art
The theme this week at Sunday Postcard Art was "Crown and Wings." I had fun makeing the collage - then discovered the quote. They fit well together.



Baby Love/ Nostalgia
The tag I created fits two challenges:

Take a Word Challenge - "Nostalgia" - as it was nostalgic looking through a box of photos for photos of my children as babies

Tag Tuesday - "Baby Love" - I couldn't settle on just one photo of each of my children - so I used 2 - it also fit well with the watercolour background that I repurposed from an old painting.



Miniature May
Here are three more collages I created for the Miniature May challenge. I am enjoying just playing with papers and using up materials I've had for a long while.







Photography
We went shopping yesterday and when I saw the planters for sale at Canadian Tire, I had to buy some. Usually I put together my own, but this time I couldn't resist buying three.
Here are some of the flowers.




And more blooms from our garden.





Couldn't resist the textures and design I saw:
