"March Goes Out Like a Lion" Mini-Monthly

Mini-Monthly: a place where gorgeous works of art that were created for various themes but did not make it in by the deadline due to different circumstances are showcased. These works were simply too incredible not to share. They will make you roar with delight!



Janet, creator of Janet Davies, created this simply stunning piece for the Vibrant Chaotic Rainbows theme.

Twisted Thicket created this absolutely gorgeous piece for the Artistic Safari theme.

"I've always been fascinated by the art & messages left thousands of years ago for us to find," said Twisted. "So, my safari took place in ancient Africa and Brazil where I hunted for spectacular petroglyphs and cave paintings that were created as far back as 5,000 years. :) I recorded some of my "catch" in acrylics on stretched canvas to share with you.The colors of the pyramid shape are actually the colors of the Brazilian flag. The canvas is small, only 5" x 7". "

Ashley Markus, creator of OffTheHooks, created this truly beautiful "rainstorm handspun art yarn" for the "Let Beauty Rain Down Upon..." theme.

"This was a great project to do as spring has been taking forever to arrive in Canada," said Ashley. "Lately, I find myself making things that incorporate the feelings, colors, and textures of spring, in hopes that it will eventually be coming!"

I originally created this for the "Flicker of Imagination" theme. It was a felt wall hang with beaded strap. That's the first time I've ever created something like that so I'm still working out the kinks. For now, I created a bookmark. To be honest, it makes me truly happy.

Now I ask you, did you not love these creations? Tell a friend, tell your boss, tell your Mom but most importantly, tell these artists. Leave them a little love!

See you next month :)

I'm so glad we get to see these!! I could not possibly choose a favorite as they are all so varied and amazing (Kim's photo is like an abstract painting, so atmospheric!). I love the quote on your bookmark, Natasha - a truly beautiful sentiment.

What a fun bracelet - imagine wearing that while dancing around in a rainbow!
Really like the colors and what's going on in the safari painting.
oooooooo that yarn, besides being my favorite color combination, looks so soft.
Bones of the earth photo - makes me want to climb into it and figure out what those objects are...................
such a sweet scrapbook page,
and
Natasha - your words - so cool that you can take a line from your poem - they stand on their own, and are so inspiring. And the best part - it makes you truly happy!
Thanks everyone for sharing, and thank you Natasha, for creating this wonderful place.

Natasha, not only do you give us a place to share each week, but you also give us an additional place to "catch up" if we "missed the bus" for any reason. You are really the dearest person.
