Art on Friday

I've been able to play more with paint and paper this week. I've joined an art group to share my art  based on a theme and have started a new challenge for September.

Paper, Paint, Pencils and Pens! welcomes artists to take part in the themes.From Sept. 1 -15 the theme is "All Kinds of Trees". Drop by - take part.
Here was my entry:

Journal Page
I used the tree background above to create this journal page:

(The quote is by Abraham Lincoln.)

I have always enjoyed creating collages and I started a new challenge for myself this month on art cards 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" I also have a huge stash of papers and want to make a dent in them. I have again tried to use stamps. I hope to do more stamp carving this month as well.

After a break of a few months I have returned to created ATCs with ATCsForAll. The swaps are a fun way to create art and then get new cards from other artists. Here's my latest set - creating a playing card set by the end, using used stamps.

Wow! So many beautiful projects. I like your take on the APC's, the birds especially. Creating the collages is a great way to use up your stash while staying creative. I look forward to seeing more of these, hoping they will inspire me to stay creative during the school year.
