ART on Friday

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.

Collage Obsession
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.

Always love stopping by to see what's on your desk. Love the Bloom journal page. Great reminder of your word. So happy to see you are doing the ICAD challenge too. This is my first year. I stopped by the Collage Obsession site. Many thanks as I have been looking for a link party to replace Glue It Tuesday.
