Art Every Day Month--Day 1

When I made a commitment to do Art Every Day Month in November, I guess I kind of didn't think about it really being EVERY, every day. :) 

After work today, I spend a few hours hopping around our Flying Lessons blog hop (see blog post below). By the time I was done with that, I figured I'd spent about 12 hours on my backside. Therefore, please don't judge today's submission too harshly.

Last month, I discovered Artists Trading Cards.  I love these little things. They are fast and cute and make me feel accomplished in record time.  Since I can also use tiny scraps of paper and bits of leftover paint, they also make me feel all responsible and stuff.

I learned recently that all of Leigh Standley's (of Curly Girl Design) original artwork fits in a cigar box. Yet, she sells 20 x 20 canvas prints! That's awesome. I'm dreaming small!

Although I have other arty stuff I know I'll need to do this month, most of my AEDM art will likely be ATCs. Here's the first one that happened in literally 10 minutes (including dry time) (remember, don't be too harsh):

This is evidence that I'm serious about doing something creative every day. Happy Day 1!

Be Blessed.  <3 Lori


  1. OK, this is the second Art Everyday post I've seen today, so I guess I'm really out of the loop right now since I don't know what it is. Surely they don't have to be completed projects, right? Well, best of luck to you!
