Sunday Weekly Wrap-up

The first week of January has passed and I have been able to create daily. I'm enjoying my heart project so far - in some ways the cards are turning into a bit of record of certain days.

Jan.3 - heart of jewels/stamped card
Jan. 4 Collage/Tissue paper

Jan. 5 Watercolour/collage A Garden of Hearts

Jan. 6 Collage, using my Gr. 3 pix ("Heaven smiles softly/and hears every wish")
Jan. 7 A Birthday card - for me!

Jan. 8 A celebration card
Jan. 9 A collage with painted paper hearts
I have completed 2 ATC swaps this past week - one a new one, of inchies (yes, one inch square cards!):

the other - ATCs with Text:

I am continuing with A Photo a day - usually, that has been of sky. Here are a couple of my favourites from the past week:
Of an icicle

Drawing and journalling haven't fared as well! I am slowly working on a drawing course but hopefully will have some to show next week. I haven't started Millande's journal course at all.
I got a gift card from Chapters from a student at Christmas and finally went last weekend to spend $25. Well, I did plus another $55! But I did buy 4 new art books which I am already enjoying:
"A Daily Creativity Journal" by Noah Scalin (he even has a great blog)
"Inner Excavation" by Liz Lamoreux
"The Fundamentals of Drawing" by Barrington Barber
"The Artist's Muse" by Betsy Dillard Stroud
Have a great week!

Wow, you've been busy, good for you! Looks like fun! I love that icicle photo! I also love that we both chose the word "balance" and I too hope that we both achieve it this year.
