Can't Get Enough and Other Stuff.
How does that song go? "Don't stop til you get enough." I guess I've become an avid member of Aimee's Glue it Lounge. I think it's because of this that I am still going strong on using up the scraps. Remember the Faces I started in the van? They were just my very beginnings of trying to draw faces at 7am or so while sitting in my van waiting to go in to my work place. I found a new place for them a long with using up my scraps. Here are a few more. While these are not finished pages, I believe they are all beginnings for backgrounds for art journaling pages. And here is the way my little houses are at this point. My houses are growing a village. lol! So much fun pasting! They look better standing up but I can't seem to find a clear enough space in my studio to lean them up and I was too lazy to carry them to another place to do it. Can you tell I've been busy? One final thought. I am getting ready to once again participate in Daisy Yellow's Icad challenge. (That's index card a day, in case you didn't know.) I did it last year and was pleased that while I did not always follow the prompts, I did manage to complete 61 days of art everyday on an index card. I can tell you how doing this led me to other things on larger canvases-if only on to larger index cards. So I started out with this and moved into this size because all of a sudden I needed to spread out. The point I am trying to make here is it's a great way to show up and create every day. I never expected myself to produce what I did on an index card. So, I am going to do it again because I know this experience has helped me grow as an artist and there was no pressure on my self to do this or that. The prompts are there only for suggestions or ideas; they're not written in stone. And doing art on an index card can mean anything. For me, working on an index card works for me sitting in my car in the morning before work with my coffee. Being part of this experience also allowed me to connect with other artists and be part of a community and make some friends. You can check out all the info on Tammy's ICAD challenge Now, if I could just get myself to put what I put on an index card on very large canvases, I'd be in trouble. lol Thanks for spending a few minutes here and I hope you will want to come again..I hope you might check out the ICAD challenge just for fun................Jo. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I am linking to Balzer Designs Art Journal Every Day here and Artsyville here
