ART IS THE PROPER TASK OF LIFE





TRUTH... I 'm  just saying.  I mean what kind of world would we live in without it?  I was thrilled to see that the challenge at Inspiration Avenue this week was "TINY ART". It is what it is, but you probably know it by the more common name of ACEO's or ATC's. Both are tiny works of art, any medium on a 2.5" x 3.5" card. These cards are generally signed by the artist and sold or traded.  I love making these cards and collecting them. Recently I was involved in a Deck Swap. These particular cards were quote cards and were  made from playing cards which are the same measurements for ACEO cards. I am now having fun  making little card books filled with these little works of art.


















The sky is the limit when making ACEO or ATC cards. Check out Inspiration Avenue to see more these little awesome works of ART.  
BEWARE... this is very addictive! :)

ROUND ROBIN ~ TRAVELING ART JOURNALS

This past year I had the privilege of working with 7 fabulous ladies who are such an inspiration to me, blogger/artists and dear friends as our journals traveled to South Carolina, Pennsylvannia, Arkansas, Three stops in the UK, Georgia and back home again. This was a true collaboration of inspiration, challenge, anticipation and sheer JOY! We all have decided to share the pages of our journals with you in hopes that they might inspire you to start  your own group and share your journals with a circle of friends. 



My Definition on my Journal Cover:  "A Round Robin is a Fat Bird, who builds His Nest on a Foundation of Inspiring Artists."

 The back side of my Journal:  "She wasn't where she had been, she wasn't where she was going, but she was flying courageously without wings."


YOU CAN TOO!  SPREAD YOUR WINGS AND FLY ~ LET YOUR CREATIVITY SOAR ~*


Most journals were open to any theme and each artist had the freedom to do whatever inspired them. It is our desire that our journey will inspire you. Please travel to each blog and leave a comment. Tell us what inspires you and what you love about Art Journals! There is a JOURNAL PRIZE AND YUMMY GOODIES to be given away to the person most interested in starting your own Art Journal Group. All the details on Priti Lisa's blog. 


We had such an amazing journey, that we have decided to do it again, and we have added another kindred spirit , #8 ~ Gemma
This time we will each select a combo of colors to be used in our books. I am going bold. I am calling on my "Inner Warrior" inspired by strong women, so I am using RED, PINK, and ORANGE, as dominant colors, infused with turquoise, gold, yellow, teal and other colors that give ReD, PiNk and OraNge their strength!
