A to Z Theme Reveal

Monday was the A to Z theme reveal for the April challenge. Over a thousand people take part in this yearly, daily challenge.
 have participated in the challenge several times now, with both writing and art themes. I had almost decided not to participate this year , but then today I got reminded at just how much I love carving stamps and thought it was time to return to it.

So-----   drumroll please:
 this round in April, I will be carving stamps and creating tags with them. I may include inspiring words - it will depend on the stamp. I just want to have fun with the creating and not feel too much pressure.

The A to Z Challenge takes place in April and is a daily challenge (except for Sundays), requiring one to create a post a day for each letter, moving through the alphabet.

The challenge begins Sunday April 1. (there's still time to sign up).
Looking forward to a fun month of creating and meeting new bloggers.

ART on Friday

Well, March has begun and soon it will be spring. The weather this week has been a roller coaster - 3 days ago it was 15 C (about 60 F) and then, a day later it was minus weather with 2 inches of snow!

Here are some of the challenges I worked on this week:

Sunday Postcard Art
The theme this week at Sunday Postcard Art was "Altered Mona Lisa"
As I have been thinking spring, I thought this appropriate:

Tag Tuesday
At Tag Tuesday, the theme is "Spring Flowers"

Art Journal Journey
The theme at Art Journal Journey this month is "Spring".  This quote by Bernard Williams made me wish for hope for the world.

Mini Collage Book
Here's a quick collage using painted scraps.
