Let us bask in the dreams created when we gaze upon a blue sky...
Amanda, creator of Persistent Green, created this magnificent untitled art journal collage.
"Wow, this week went by fast!" said Amanda. "I'm not too thrilled with my submission--can't expect much more, since I gave myself so little time to play. Oh well, it was still nice to take a few minutes (after a wonderful walk in the sunshine) and be grateful for blue blue sky."
Felicia, creator of Another Bright Idea, created this phenomenal piece titled, “Celebrate children”.
"While working on an assignment for Natasha’s writing course, I spent some time at a new children’s park in the city today," said Felicia. "I loved the park, but one thing that struck me was that on the list of donors plaque some families had included quotes or short phrases. So I pulled the phrases out and turned them into an imaginary signpost for the park, set against a blue sky, of course! (I wrote about the park in more detail on my blog: http://feliciakramer.blogspot.com/2010/03/wednesday-in-park.html)"
Maureen, a talented artist, created this wonderful piece.
"This week, my 'peaceful, bluesky, relaxed' piece started out because I was either really really mad or really really sad--can't remember which!! Wise daughter, aka Amanda/Persistent Green, told me to PAINT!" said Maureen. "I had only 5 minutes before I had to head out the door, so I scribbled with the wax resist crayon and literally slapped on paint. Later that night and the next day, I layered more paint. As soon as I scribbled the wax resist, I KNEW the final design would be pleasing. Something in my gut was saying that the mad/sad was NOT in charge, but my native love and joy WAS. Then, the last touch was adding the words. I wish these colors copied better, because the original has luscious islandly turquoises . . oh well."
Trina, creator of Woven Chains Jewelry, created this unforgettable piece.
"Natasha, here's to your Spring!" said Trina. "I hope it comes soon, too. My contribution to the wish is a sterling silver flower that I hand formed from wire. I added blue and white dangles for color."
Natasha, creator of Doodlestar, created a new journal.
This journal is all about playing and daydreaming. It is not finished. I'm laying down the fabric later today but the inside is done and I wanted you to see the cover. Blue sky dreams :)
Has viewing all these blue sky wonders made you want to challenge yourself to create something new??
Well, the next theme is.........."Happiness is a ...". The only requirement within this theme is that you need to use an assortment of colors...think rainbows and happiness :)
