Sunday Weekly Wrap-up/ Month's End


October is coming to a close and as I look back I can see that I am creating more regularly and trying new challenges. Life has a way of getting in the way of having big blocks of time to create, but I try to slip in smaller moments.


Here is a look at some of the projects/challenges I have been working on:


GPP#45 Challenge Back to Back


I have been enjoying these challenges and this month we were to create with the scraped pages we created last month. I used one sheet to create Hallowe'en ATCs.



I hope to do more with this challenge in the coming month.

This has been the most regular challenge. I love photographing skies, flowers, trees and have been doing a lot of this in October. Here are a few of my favourite shots:









I have recently signed up for this free e-course and am enjoying the lessons and the art. Tam gives so much and I love her approach. I am no where near finishing the first week's lessons but here is a glimpse of my unfinished portrait. I am looking forward to working through all the projects.






November 1st begins Art Every Day Month at Creative Every Day. I did the challenge last year and am looking forward to taking part this year.

My goal for this month is to create every day, a minimum of 30 minutes a day.
I love the idea of using a small journal and drawing something every day.

I also hope to work on some of the projects I have begun and not finished.

I will continue to work on my photography, on the TNC - The Happy Book and the many other photo challenges I take part in. I have a number of ATC swaps to complete as well.

ATCs
This month I have done a number of photo swaps, as well as a couple of 1 to 1 swaps which were fun. Here is a swap for :

Bev - thanks for playing along in the crusade. That background used for an atc looks like the perfect choice. Bravo!

Sounds like you have a lot of great and creative ideas to keep you busy this month. I like the idea of creating 30 minutes for 30 days.
This is my first time participating.
(thanks for the kudos on my Mandala/Altar, much appreciated)
