This week’s quote was from Julia Cameron, who wrote The artists way. The bonus challenge was to use a heart/s on the page. I suspect my heart was not quite what they were thinking of! I used a StencilGirl stencil, other stencils, Dylusions paint and Golden Fluid acrylics. In the bottom left you can see, under the red border, that I started stamping a different border but didn’t like it. I left it there because the joy is in the process of creation and the final page doesn’t have to be perfect…
This week’s quote was about finding your tribe. The bonus challenge was to carve a stamp, which I decided not to do. I enjoyed this because Seth Godin’s book about tribes really spoke to me some years ago, and I have found two tribes I “love hard” – artists, and librarians on Twitter. Golden Fluid acrylics, Dina Wakley paint, Tim Holtz stencils, Dylusions stamps, Distress Markers, white gel pen.
This week’s quote was about art, and the challenge was to add a bird. This rooster appealed to me, and his red comb stood out well against the background, so I couldn’t resist. Dylusions and Dina Wakley paints, stencils, collage, gel medium.
I’m enjoying the challenges, but doing it my way, so still doing some March pages as well as setting up April.
This week’s quote was from the Buddha, and the challenge was to use drips and splatters. Heck yes! I used Dina Wakley paints, Gelli printed tissue and gel medium.
This week’s quote was about hope, so I have used sunny, hopeful colours – and bees, because bees matter to our world. The extra challenge was to use glitter, which I say I’m not fond of, but it turns out I have quite a lot of it tucked away really!
This week’s quote was by Proust and the challenge was to incorporate eyes. Various paints, Traci Bautista StencilGirl stencils, magazine image for the collage.
Last week’s quote was about spreading your wings to fly, and the challenge was to use wings (or was it a bird? Oops, not sure – to late now…). Various paints, collage paper, StencilGirl owl stencil for the wings.
I was away for 5 days with work, so am late posting for week 11. The quote was about intuition and the challenge was to add an animal to the page. I loved the chance to use my StencilGirl elephant stencil.
This weekend it was time to set up my unplanner for March with a month view calendar, a blank list for recording who knows what, and the first of this month’s PACs. I’ve gone for collaged gelli prints with stencilling over the top as a base for my pages. The theme is about finding value in the small things and I knew straight away what I needed to record. Every few years the migrating swallows find their way to our back yard for a rest on the washing line. It’s always amazing to see them – I have no idea how they end up in Patea, and why only every few years, but I am grateful they are an occasional part of our lives.
