Stacks of Inspiration

A fun online collaboration hosted by Seth Apter went on today over at The Altered Page.  I wanted to participate, but everyday life took over and I was unable to.  Hop on over here to see the beautiful stacks of inspiration.  Who knew that inspiration could be found in paper stacks?

Forgot to add that Annie over at Bohemannie Art  linked me to this fun challenge!

Junk Journal

This is a page inside of one of my junk journals/sketchbooks.  I keep little inspirations in them like pictures, sketches that I've drawn, dada mail, color swatches, etc.

I hope to do a video soon.  I just wanted to post a quick share.

Thanks in advance for looking and leaving a comment.

Enjoy your weekend !

Gilbert, 2 1/2 x 3 inch, watercolor

This is Gilbert.  He came about because zentangles sounds good in theory, but when you have toddlers running around it's not so good.  I ditched that idea and instead found inspiration from a painting in the children's wing of our local museum. While my children were engaged I hurriedly sketched this guy and colored him when I made it home.  I've seen a couple of art bloggers suggest doing this as a way to get your mojo flowing.

He's so imperfect and it was difficult for me to share, but I think part of the art process of UNFURLING is to share your work too.  So here he is...Gilbert.

Happy Labor Day!

The last days of summer of here.  I'm looking forward to fall and cool weather.

This month's theme over at the sketchbook challenge blog is Unfurl.  So I'm tempted to try zentangles as a way of unfurling my artistic techniques.

Found this cool tutorial here over at Looking forward to our 3 day weekend so I can give this a try.

In the meantime.  Be blessed!
