Since May now is half over I thought it time to share my calendar spread for the month. Again, this was inspired by a prompt from my online class with Joanne Sharpe-DYAY. (See sidebar link). I need to link this to Kathryn Crane's calendar challenge-of which I am in it for my third year now).
This is the spread once I figured out the layout and went over it all with a Pitt pen:
And this is May painted in with Peerless water colors:
Freshly Made Sketches has a new sketch challenge for this week:
Simon Wed. blog challenge - "die crazy" to come up with this card:
And lastly , a mixed media piece I did in my watercolor journal which I am linking to Art Journal Every Day, Creative Every Day, Mix It Monthly (theme is "coffee"), Paint Party Friday, and the Simon Monday Challenge "M" ( my entry is mixed media).
Besides being inspired by the coffee theme it also came about thru an exercise on scraping and incising in Serena Barton's book Wabi Sabi Art Workshop. LOVE this book which has taught me so much and continues to move me "outside" my box yet "into" the heart and spirit I wish to convey in my work!
Thank you for your visits and comments. I so appreciate it. Wishing you a wonderful weekend whatever you'll be doing (which I hope includes some art time:) !
