ART on Friday

The first Friday of September - has the summer ever gone by quickly.
Here are a few things I have been working on this week:

Colour Me Positive
This week at LuLuArt, the theme is travel.
Hans Christian Anderson had it right: "To travel is to live."
Travel also broadens the mind, allowing us to walk in others' shoes and see how they live their lives.

Tag a Day and New Challenge
Tara Leaver posted a new 7 day mini art project earlier this week and I started it yesterday.
We are to create a small series of artwork over 7 days.

I decided to create 7 small pieces (6x5 1/2"). Each day I plan to add a different layer until I have at least 7 layers.
I decided also, to do this with my art tags for this month - doing a different set of 7 each week.

First layer:spray inks

Second layer: stamping
Third layer: printing with bubble wrap
Fourth layer: stencilling (using a stencil with small circles) - this is a view of the tags

Tomorrow I will add torn and unique papers.Then I plan on adding used stamps, and printing with my own handcarved stamps. 
(I have also been inspired by Jane Davies with her series of collages.)

I also did a tag for ABC Wednesday this week - for H.

 Show Your Face
I decided that for September I would also sketch a face a day. I've missed that over the summer. .Kim Dellow has a great challenge each week at her blog.

Zen a Day
Although I got a bit behind, I did finish my zen a day page for August.

I had to take some more flower photos today:

Love the sketches of your faces. You do portrait drawing well. Your flowers would also make lovely drawings. Hope you will consider drawing them.
