I think this 30 day create challenge is very cool! If you are interested head over to Whimsey and Zen and join us. The really nice thing about this challenge is that any type of creativity counts - knitting, painting, you name it! So that means when I pull out my Cricut and scrapbook or make cards that counts! Nice!
Today I worked on the inchie for Every Inchie Monday. The word was "khaki". I pulled out any paper I had that resembled that color and went to town collaging. It is not spectacular, but it suffices. Actually the colors are among my favorites.
Then I worked on the challenge for Diva. Hard to believe it is challenge #170. Be had to do a Use My Tangle piece using the tangle "bugles". While I had put this tangle in my notebook, I have to say I have never used it - or been tempted to. It is a pretty tangle, I just don't seem to have made it work for me. All that said, when I finished the whole tile, I was rather pleased with it. I probably won't run to this tangle but then again I won't avoid it either. These two things are all I got finished for today's challenge - the rest was done last week.
For Christmas I got the book The Beauty of Zentangle. It has tons of inspiring pieces in it and my plans this summer are to "borrow" some those inspirations and play with them. I will try to remember to post the original artist's name when I share those pieces. One of the pages by Angie Vangalis made me want to pull out my watercolors and see what I could do. I decided to stay within one color family for mine. I can't decide whether to tangle over the colored areas or not. Any suggestions?
Journal 52 catch up time! I am sooooo far behind. My summer goal is to get caught up with the current week. Of course I realize the moment school starts, I will be soooo far behind yet again! Hey, I can dream, right?
Week 17 was the "refresh" prompt. What refreshes you? I had lots of thoughts - summertime is my refreshing time. However the last few days of school I had some really bad leg pains and so I decided to go with what was making me feel refreshed at the moment - a long hot soak.
For week 18, we were to explore the idea of creative hands. I traced my hand and then added some things I enjoy with my hands. I also put one of my absolute favorite quotes on this page. It sort of sums up how I feel about creating.
I skipped a few weeks and went over to week 21. I will go back and do the others I am just waiting for some grand idea to hit me. Since I enjoy doing zendalas, this page, "making mandalas", was right up my creative alley!
Whew! Long winded post. Thanks for bearing with me. Please leave me a comment if you can.
