ART on Friday - a return!

A new month, a new resolve to do more, a return to art and ART on Friday. It has been a while since I posted but I'm back with focus and resolve to do better.

Steal Like an Artist Journal Challenge
I have started a daily entry in Austin Kleon's "Steal Like an Artist Journal". I even emailed him to be sure it was okay to post pages from his journal and he gave me the go-ahead. He is one of my heroes. I have read several of his books several times. They really do help one's creativity. Be sure to check his website here (and don't forget to sign up to his newsletter - filled with awesomeness!)

Here are my entries for:
May 2nd

Create a spine poem from books you have on hand.

May 3rd

Create a poem from headlines cut out from the newspaper. These are some of the headlines just from the pst few days. Really show just how destructive the PC (Con) government is in Ontario.

I created another card for my OLW (Focus)

Blooming Marvellous May
At KickintheCreatives, there's a new art challenge - create a piece of flower art every day.
I love the artwork of Alisa Burke - especially her flowers. I have signed up for her "Inky Blooms" course and hope to share some this month,
Here are my first three blooms inspired by Alisa:

I haven't been taking part in any weekly challenges for a while, but am jumping back in.

Sunday Postcard Art

The theme at Sunday Postcard Art was "No focal point"
I used a piece from when I needed to clear paint from a roller and then added the quote.


I used the following card for both: Take a Word Challenge (theme: pairs) and Try it on Tuesday (theme: things with wings)

Tag Tuesday

The theme at Tag Tuesday was "Faces"
