Well, hello lovelies! Happy end of the week. Next week will most likely be busy for many of us as we celebrate Thanksgiving Day here in the US...and then oh boy, Black Friday shopping frenzies (tho I WON'T be part of that mess!) So before things get so busy with all the cooking and cleaning I'll be doing, I took more time this week to play along with a handful of challenges. I do hope you'll check them out as there is nothing like a good challenge to fuel the creative fire, n'est-ce pas?
First up is a card for Freshly Made Sketches and I actually have it done to link up in time-unlike last week...(you can still see that sketch and my card in my last post)
My next card is for Moo Mania (theme is "stripes"), the Simon Monday Challenge (theme is "thanks/Thanksgiving"), and Try It On Tuesday (theme is "trees are green ...or any other color"):
and I have another card for Moo Mania and Try it On Tuesday:
For the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Christmas Critters is the theme) I have these gift tags:
Finally, for Art Journal Journey (theme is "collage with a twist-no faces, no wings, no leaves") I have this journal page:
Pretty much everyone knows of my love for the ocean/beach. I created this simply with a large brush and washes of three blue acrylic paints then added the torn pieces of deli paper Gelli Plate prints. I felt this was all that was needed (except to pencil in the word bliss). You can see another collage in this post.
And just for fun I doodled a sea themed page in my smaller doodle journal:
I am also joining in at Paint Party Friday hosted by Eva and Kristin. It's a great place to meet up with artists using many different styles and mediums! Will be around to visit as many as I can over the next few days. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment here. XO
