I was able to do some creating and do some writing. I also read and connected with some friends. I am currently taking two writing courses and an art course. I have worked on all three through the week.
This art course involves journalling about our connections with God. As it says on their site: "exploring what it means to be a person who makes things who believes she or he was, in turn, made by God." We are creating an altered book and I have been preparing pages.
We had to choose images that had meaning for us, glue down and gesso the pages. I will be working on the images this week. 52 Card - Altered Playing Card Challenge This is a new challenge that started last week at Claudine's blog. The cards you see above were the first task - gesso the backs of a set of cards. It will be interesting to see in the weeks ahead what we will do with the cards. ATCs I've been working on a number of sets of cards for swaps and trades at Atcs For All ( a fun place to share and create ATCs) Using postage stamps:
Day of the Dead
Cats and Bugs
Photography And of course, I took some photos of flowers in our garden - they won't be around much longer.
