Come, let's delight in the memory of childhood...let's see what the idea of artful mischief conjures up......
Maureen, a talented artist, created this fabulous piece.
“Maureen's offering this week is a tribute to her big brother. She was overjoyed to have this prompt pull up a memory of the incredible Halloween costumes her brother would make. One year she wore some sort of dress that had a bicycle tire around its hem to help it stand out, and her accessory was a magic wand, wrapped in aluminum foil, that actually lit up. So, in the midst of many Bad Things, her brother gave her the power to light up the night. Thank you, Dan!"
Felicia Kramer, creator of Another Bright, created these two unforgettable pieces, “I see you!” a photo montage and “The Curiosity of a Child”, a digital collage.
“I took the photo of this little guy many years ago at a family party (I think he’s in college now!) and just love it,” said Felicia. “I thought it was about time to use it. Here’s two versions. I suppose my 20-word poem works with either one …”
That fearless, delightful curiosity.
Those innocent eyes bright with wonder and surprise.
Oh, to return to that magical childhood again!
I see you!
The Curiosity of a Child
Amanda, creator of Persistent Green, created this phenomenal Color Outside the Lines, mixed media painting.
"I grew up in a very creatively encouraging environment, where we could always let our imaginations run wild (being homeschooled helped this happen as well)," said Amanda. "In my house, coloring outside the lines wasn't mischievous at all--it was the norm! Thanks for reminding me to be grateful for this blessing."
Teri, creator of Giraffelabel, created this sensational yet-to-be-named beaded fabric cuff bracelet.
"I honestly do not have a good "explanation" for how I came up with this," said Teri. "My thought process was something like this: art...mischief...childhood...dress-up...sewing...mom's
Natasha, creator of DoodleStar, created this journal.
"I was playing with this paper all last week but I just couldn't figure out what I wanted it to be so I stashed it away. Then, as I was journaling about this theme I had a memory of pulling my bureau away from the wall and drawing all sorts of Cinderella things on my pink walls and suddenly I had it. The journal is filled with colorful paper to play on and lots of silly prompts!"
Please note my store will be opening again shortly :)
Trina, creator of Woven Chains Jewelry, created these truly magnificent pieces, a "Carnivale" necklace and two black and red bracelets.
"I'm so excited for Thursday this week. I can't remember when I have been more excited to see what the sweet treat will bring. This theme energized me in the best way!" said Trina. "I could have created and created and created for this theme, but this silly little time thing got in my way. I only managed to get two of the entries in my head finished in time. The others will just have to wait."
"The first is my "Carnivale" neckace. Bursting with color, wonder, and play, this was the first thought I had when I read the word mischief -- just a little on the wild side."
"The second are two black and red bracelets, an homage to my favorite Batman character "Harley Quinn". To me, she has always embodied all that is mischevious in this world -- a little fun, a lot naughty, and never stopping to apoligize for anything."
Bird, creator of CrowTarot and CrowTarot Tours, created this gorgeous piece.
"Just one this week - but there has been progress elsewhere - Facebook fan page now published, icon edited & resubmitted, WordPress theme has been installed and the first steps towards customization have occurred, and I'm much closer to having our CafePress shop up & running," said Bird. "So, a productive week all 'round. Which is good, because our October must-move-by date grows ever closer, and I have realized that it's more accurately a "have the money by June" date instead, which leads to its own freakouts. Anyway. :-D Enjoy the pooch & the poem & may your own weeks be as free & fun! :-D"
