I've signed up for the Art Every Day Month challenge at Creative Everyday.
Although the "rules" are pretty much whatever I want them to be, the point is to be creative everyday and post the results on the blog. I know I have some projects for November that will count towards this challenge. I really just needed more motivation to turn off the television, get off Facebook and get upstairs. This ought to do it.
One thing I'm going to do is a set of Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) for another little exchange I am doing with my arty friends from Flying Lessons. ATCs are tiny little 2.5 x 3.5 canvas cards that you can use just like a regular sized canvas. I'd seen them hanging on the rack at Hobby Lobby but didn't know what they were or why anyone would want to do them. These things are so fun! Our first swap theme was "Flying". This is my little set..I wish I'd gotten a better photo:
The next theme is "Winter". I already have a couple of ideas percolating. I might have to work on them in the bleachers at basketball games, but I'm good with that. There may also be a few other surprises up my sleeves, so STAY TUNED!
November 1st is the launch date for AEDM. Additionally, some of my Flying Lessons classmates and I (more info on Flying Lessons in this post) are going to be doing a HUGE blog hop on November 1st.
We are all creating art inspired by the class, blogging about it and posting it to our blogs that day. Make sure to come back and check out the amazing talent. Seriously. The talent these women possess is so inspiring. There are lots of painters, jewelry crafters, and photographers, artists working in ceramics, metal clay, fabric, assemblages from recycled materials and so much more. There are 43 people signed up to participate. I'm so stoked to see what they have created!
November's a big month. Thanks for joining in the fun! Wishing you a week overflowing with blessings that leave no doubts how much you are loved.
