Sunday Weekly Wrap-up and Color This Quote

This past week I was able to complete a few challenges as well as some ATCs.

Color This Quote

Artists in Blogland hosts a fun monthly challenge, based on a quote.
This month the new quote was from Pablo Picasso:
"Every act of creation is first an act of destruction." 

As I thought about the quote, I realized that whenever I do a collage I first must tear or cut up paper and images before I begin. So I used some gelli papers and tore them into pieces. then I created a sky/ground.

The image I then used was of a butterfly. Its metamorphosis is an act of destruction to create this beautiful creature.


Collages - I created 2 collages for 2 favourite challenges this week. Check them out here.

I created several ATCs this week for different swaps:




A new swap  of a  hand - this was my zen henna hand

Joy Cards
I created 3 joy cards this week - 2 very simple ones, one with a message I need to take to heart.

With the lovely weather the past few days, I was able to get out and get some flower photos. Here are a few.

Hope you have a wonderfully creative week!
