Painted a teeny tiny world. Easy step back into some creative work. (Wish I could make everything well in our world as easily.) #acreativepractice #whpmini #watercolour #artistsonig #capturingcolour #heitermoments #astillmoment #smallmomentsofcalm #ourcreativeselves #creativityfound #makersgonnamake
Busy making new things for my etsy shop today! The angel images are from photos I took at Lincoln and Worcester cathedrals.
--Postcards-- #augustbreak2017 .  These are the best of the second half of the #icad2017 challenge I participated in through June and July. Art is a recovery and rediscovery of yourself. And I realized I need it even more now. .  Today on the blog, why recovery is easier when you know it's impact on the ones you love. You may not run a marathon for you but you'd do it for a good cause. Children are my greatest cause.

Peacock feather in paint and coloured pencil, on a stamped background
Today's icad started with a square cut out from an old cyanotype I did. I was inspired to carry on with the blues!
Making up for missing the first days of #icad - leaf monoprint on book page
Background of random acrylic marks, and hearts - a paper one and a fabric one. Today is officially the last day of #icad (although I missed the first few days so I'm probably going to make a few more!) It's been wonderful and inspiring to see all the creativity and talent out there. On some days the project has felt challenging and I've not always liked what I've produced. But overall, I've loved the routine of creating something every day and being reminded that even on days when you're staring at a blank piece of paper with no inspiration, if you can just start then often the art takes care of itself ☺
I started my Monday with black coffee and brownie, which meant I didn't realise the milk was off. Quick dash to the co-op before guitar, and I've a feeling that may have set the pattern for the day, with rather too much to fit in.  So, look at the sky, take a breath. And again.  #smallmomentsofcalm #heitermoments #astillmoment #cornersofmyworld #embracingtheseasons #shotonmobile #fieldsofgold #tostandandstare #inspiredbynature_ #acreativepractice #thisismykingdom #countrysidecalm #calm_collected #calmversation #the_gentle_manifesto #fb
Leaf monoprint, collage, paint and wood stain - I've never thought to try wood stain on paper before but it worked OK (though it was a good job I was working on newspaper, the stain sank right through the card!)
Pink hydrangea collage - I haven't actually stuck these pieces down yet, still playing around with the composition!
Another little collage - the icad project is proving to be a great way of using all those little scraps of paper and fabric that I couldn't bear to throw away!
{ghost} #icad .  This was a way better look for Granny. She was a "rode hard and put away wet", "One foot already in the grave " kinda granny. .  #icad2017  #creativityfound #createeveryday #collage #taleswithfriends #paper #mixedmedia #ourcreativeselves #acreativepractice #creativelifehappylife #collageartist #collageart #cutandpaste #analoguecollage #papercraft
This is kind of a pair with yesterday's index card - I made the tags at the same time (is that cheating?!) I don't like this one as much - in retrospect I think it's a little too brown! - but it's always good to try things and learn what does/doesn't work!
#icad with luggage tag. Various papers and a little strip of film negative at the bottom of the tag, just because I like the way it looks!
{sepia} #icad .  My sister gifted me some turn of century pictures from New England. I love the earnestness of this gal's eyes. So I dressed her up in a flower garden. Live to smell the flowers. .  #icad2017 #creativityfound #createeveryday #collage #taleswithfriends #paper #mixedmedia #ourcreativeselves #acreativepractice #creativelifehappylife #collageartist #collageart #cutandpaste  #analoguecollage #papercraft @drumsinger
{Greetings from} #icad .  Greetings from my clean work bench where all the pieces were used up and put away today. The icad challenge is about to slow to a stop but I have soooo appreciated the opportunity to stretch. I'll be doing a retrospective soon on themes and techniques that emerged. Did I mention I'm putting together a Creativity workshop here on the Eastern Shore. People think I know something so I suppose I'll see if I do. .  #icad2017  #creativityfound #createeveryday #collage #taleswithfriends #paper #mixedmedia #ourcreativeselves #acreativepractice #creativelifehappylife #collageartist #collageart #cutandpaste #analoguecollage #papercraft
Leafy tree card in acrylic and coloured pencil
Just stood in the garden watching a blackbird do the classic early bird worm thing. Except it's after 9. Guess that worm could have done with another coffee too.  Macro daisy. And why not.  #smallmomentsofcalm #heitermoments #astillmoment #cornersofmygarden #macromagic #littlestoriesofmylife #todaysgoodthing #acreativepractice #aprettyishkindof_wilderness #mystoryoflight #throughadifferenteye #seenotherwise #colourmygreyday #outdoorsandhappy
{mirror} #icad .  My four year old daughter asked me yesterday, what's a doppleganger? Wtf? I explained as best I could. So mirrors have many meanings. This is a weasel doppelganger icad card. .  #icad2017 #creativityfound #createeveryday #collage #taleswithfriends #paper #mixedmedia #ourcreativeselves #acreativepractice #creativelifehappylife #collageartist #collageart #cutandpaste  #analoguecollage #blackandwhite
Acrylic paint monoprint on a canvas heart. I've reused one of my butterflies from yesterday's icad, just because I liked it so much!
