This week at ABC Wednesday, C is the letter of the week.
C is for Cards
Playing cards are just the right size for creating APCs - art playing cards (a typical ATC).They provide a strong backing for collage.
Christmas cards can be cut up and used to createChristmas ornaments.
C is also for cardboard Cardboard pieces can be used in a number of ways. One of my favourites is to strip off the outer layer, to reveal the ridges in the centre and then use this for printmaking on the gelli plate.
Be sure to check here to see what others found for C.
ABC Wednesday is starting Round 16 this week! Congratulations - over seven years of this interesting challenge. Join in the fun - check here for the rules, and how others have interpreted the challenge of A..
I wanted to do another creative project for this round, so decided that since one of my goals this year is to use up many of my art and craft supplies, I would choose a supply and then create something from it.
A is for Ads.
Each week we are bombarded by ads. I gathered a few.
Then I cut and pasted in my journal, and created an ad collage.
Time again to share some of the art I have worked on in the past week.
I plan to take part this challenge throughout the year. This past week's theme was "Just be"
As my word of the year (OLW), I created this journal page as well as adding some quotes.
I have started to work through Kathleen Murray's interesting book "Let's Tangle". There are step-by-step instructions for creating over 100 zentangles. I aim to do a few a week.
Here are a couple I had fun with:
I have also started sketching on random pages in "Sketch This" and it is fun and relaxing to do. Here are the latest ones I've done.
I've taken some photos of skies lately - some of the cloud formations are lovely.
