The past few weeks I have been sharing some of my weekly art on Fridays, taking part in several fun challenges/memes. For a long time I had shared my art on Sundays, but I always found myself rushing late to post. Today I decided that I would begin a more formal sharing on Friday, under the heading "ART on Friday".
While searching for quotes this week for another project, I found these and knew it was meant to be. With the rainbow I saw on Wednesday, it seemed the perfect inspiration for this journal spread.
(Joy quote by Robert Wagner)
Bloom is my One Little Word this year and I felt that I needed the reminder that I really do need to bloom - it is that time of the year when flowers blossom and share their best. I have to as well.
Faces for "Show Your Face"
I have been enjoying the weekly challenge at Kim Dellow's blog to share faces on Friday.It has forced me to work on faces - whether sketching or painting. Here are 2 I sketched.
It has been a while since I participated in the challenges at Collage Obsession. Their theme this week was "Stamps". ICAD (hosted by Daisy Yellow) returns on Monday for 60 days and to warm up I created these 3 small collages - using similar materials, as well as a used stamp and stamps I carved.
Time to share skies.. This morning the cloud cover was grey - hopefully we will get some much needed rain today.
Yesterday though, the clouds were lovely and I was even able to capture part of a rainbow (after 10 minutes of rain!)

Earlier we had frost warning (0C) but now the sun is out and the temperature has jumped to 13C - a tad warmer. I put our small plants back out - maybe we will finally be able to get our flowers and plant them today!
Here are a few shadows:

This week at ABC Wednesday, the letter is S. S is for stamps and stencils.
For this journal page, I gessoed pages in an old music book, used the large writing stamp on the left in four spots and then used a stencil to add the word "Create" and then some flowers with modeling paste. Stencils and stamps can be used in so many ways - and they are fun to use.
Time for the weekly sharing of our workspaces at Julia's "Stamping Ground" for WOYWW.
By the time I was finished the journal page, I had letter stamps and stencils, inkpads and daubers scattered around it.
While I let the first layers dry, I looked for a quote about creating and discovered this one by Dejan Stojanovic - it seemed appropriate.
One thing I did learn was to wait for the modeling paste to dry!
