ART on Friday


Time for my weekly art share.

The Collage Workbook
I made a decision that this year I would pull some of my art books off the shelf and actually work through them. The first book  is "The Collage Workdbook" by Randel Plowman and so far I am enjoying the projects. The subtitle really describes the book - "how to get started and stay inspired".
My first project was to do 5 cards (I used 3x5 index cards), spending 5 minutes on each. A fun, quick project:


I also need to get rid of the many magazines I have - a vice I have! - so I used these to pull images and words and colours.

The next project was to create cards of one colour, in different tints and shades. I did 6:


Colour Me Positive
This week at LuLu Art, the theme is discipline.
I did a very random, inked background and then stamped some very regular borders, before adding the quote for the week.



Full Moon Dreamboard
Yesterday, was the full wolf moon and I have decided to take part once again, in the monthly creation of a dreamboard.
The question I focused on as I created it was "What am I hungry for?"



Art Quote Cards
A new round of ABC Wednesday began this week and I decided to create "Speak Out" cards as I feel we all must do our part in speaking out against racism, bigotry, homophobia, prejudice of any kind.
Here are the first two:




There's still time to join in with this fun weekly challenge - so many ways to take part - art, photography, stories, etc. Check here for more info.


365 Sketches
Here are the latest daily sketches for my 365 project - I decided to focus on flowers.
