ABC Wednesday - F is for Fence


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

F is for Fence

Fences are a barrier and keep things out  but they also keep us in. Here's the art tag I created for this week:

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.

But it is also shows what pressure can do - it can be destructive but pressure also created diamonds.
The tag I created show how precious metals/gems are created - just as we are often refined by the pressures and stresses of life.

ABC Wednesday - C is for Crayon




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

C is for crayon.

Crayons are a necessary art tool for young artists and still enjoyable for adults.


Yet, the nature of the variety of crayons and colours lends itself to life and the quote I used reflects this.



The following quotes reflect this as well:

Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.       Allen Klein

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.  Robert Fulghum

I consider myself a crayon... I may not be your favorite color but one day you'll need me to complete your picture.  Lauryn Hill


Be sure to check here to see what others around the world chose for C. this week.

ART on Friday


It's been a couple of weeks since I shared - July has been a busy month. It was nice to get away last week but now am back home and back to routines.
Here are a few challenges I have been working on:

Sunday Postcard Art
The theme at Sunday Postcard Art this week was "Cats".


I still miss our Fluffy who was 21 when she died - 6 years ago now. Here's one of my favourite shots of her, that graced our local paper!



Tag Tuesday
The theme at Tag Tuesday is "Nautical/Seaside." i couldn't resist this quote"



Take a Word Challenge
The theme at Take a Word Challenge is "Beauty".
I had already painted this lily - felt it worked well with the quote.



ICAD
The 2 month ICAD challenge is still on - here are the last 4 I created:

ABC Wednesday - and WOYWW


A brand new round of ABC Wednesday starts this week.  Please join the fun! So many possibilities to choose from.

I have decided to once again carve a stamp and create an art tag with a quote for each letter.


A is for angel

I have collected angels for years - both angel ornaments (which now overflow on a tree) and statues. Here are just a few from my collection:



I carved a stamp of angel wings when I found the quote about angels' Wings.



Be sure to check here to see what others around the world did for A and just what theme they are planning for this new round.



WOYWW

Each week Julia Dunnit of Stamping Ground encourages us to share what we are working on and what the state of our work spaces are.

When I had finished the tag above, my dining room table or art table looked like this:



Here is a look inside my new stamping journal as I keep track of the stamps I carve and the tags I create.
