ABC Wednesday - M is for Mask


This week at ABC Wednesday, M is our focus.

M is for Mask -which has several meanings. With Hallowe'en soon here, masks will be in abundance, from simple ones to cover the eyes, or ones to hide a face

To mask  means to conceal or disguise.

In art, a mask is used as a screen.

For health reasons, we wear a mask to protect and for sleep, we use a C-PAP to help keep our airways open.

I could not choose just one quote - so I created 4. art tags with my mask carved stamp:

ABC Wednesday - L is Lighthouse



This week at ABC Wednesday, L is the star.

L is for Lighthouse. There is something special about a lighthouse - that its light pierces the night and fog and protects those on the water. Throughout the Maritimes there are numerous lighthouses still operating and more that are being protected.

Here's my carved stamp and art card for L.

ABC Wednesday -I is for Igloo



This week at ABC Wednesday, I is the letter of focus.

I is for igloo - the winter structure built from snow blocks by the Inuit.

It is an amazing feat of ingenuity - to create a warm abode from snow and ice, and usually in a relatively short time. Inuit  still use igloos when hunting.

Here's a fascinating video showing how an igloo is built.

ABC Wednesday - D



This week at ABC Wednesday, D is the letter of the week.

D is for Diamond - usually considered a girl's best friend.
