ART on Friday


That time of the week to share a bit of what I have been working on this week.

Miniature May
I have been enjoying creating these 5x5 miniature collages for the Miniature May challenge.
Here are the last 3 I created:





CHALLENGES
I only took part in a couple of challenges this week, and was able to use up some of the many used stamps. I have.

ART on Friday/Saturday


Once again, my art sharing is a day late - but at least it's happening!

I took part in several challenges this week:

Sunday Postcard Art
The theme this week at Sunday Postcard Art was "Crown and Wings." I had fun makeing the collage - then discovered the quote. They fit well together.



Baby Love/ Nostalgia
The tag I created fits two challenges:

Take a Word Challenge - "Nostalgia" - as it was nostalgic looking through a box of photos for photos of my children as babies

Tag Tuesday - "Baby Love" - I couldn't settle on just one photo of each of my children - so I used 2 - it also fit well with the watercolour background that I repurposed from an old painting.



Miniature May
Here are three more collages I created for the Miniature May challenge. I am enjoying just playing with papers and using up materials I've had for a long while.







Photography
We went shopping yesterday and when I saw the planters for sale at Canadian Tire, I had to buy some. Usually I put together my own, but this time I couldn't resist buying three.
Here are some of the flowers.




And more blooms from our garden.





Couldn't resist the textures and design I saw:

ART on Friday - on Sat.


The first Friday in May brings a return to sharing of some of my artwork this week - although I am posting a bit late.

I am taking part in several challenges this month - two daily ones and several weekly ones.

 Miniature May
This daily challenge asks us to create small pieces of art -smaller than  5x5. I chose to create 5x5 mini collages.
Here are a few of my favourites from the first week:




Sunday Postcard Art
The theme this week at Sunday Postcard Art is "Mail Art". I have lots of used stamps, so this was fun to do.



Try it on Tuesday
The theme this week at TIOT is "Stencils/Die Cuts or both.
I created this as my daily collage today for Miniature May.



Photography
Flowers are blooming in our gardens - as are dandelions - so I thought I'd get a few photos and then share.






I saw a dove in our backyard but before I could zoom in, it flew off.

WOYWW



I've been absent from WOYWW for a while but with May and new challenges, I knew I needed to return

WOYWW is the weekly meme hosted by Julia Dunnit at "Stamping Ground" - where we are all encouraged to share what we are working on and the state of our work spaces.

I have started the Miniature May challenge - creating small pieces of art  (less than 5x5). I am creating 5x5 mini collages.

Yesterday I created this one:


Here's today's collage:



Once I finished the collage, here's what my dining room table looked like:
