Please join me on a wonderful carnvial ride!
Althea, creator of Salvaged Expression, created this gorgeous piece.
"I call it fairground night," said Althea. "On one hand it's a shout out to all those who prefer to ride the big rides at night and look at all the colorful lights as they streak past. On the other hand it's a big excuse to use as much colored glitter as possible in one project. Potato - Potato."
Maureen, a talented artist, created this stunning piece.
"Here's my best effort at fireworks, with my watercolors, wax resist, and blowing through a straw . . somehow the sparkle of fireworks is something I associate with carnivals .. but this didn't come out too sparkly. It's the best I could do on 1 1/2hours of sleep!" said Maureen.
Iris, creator of Iris O'Connor, created these sensational pieces.
"When someone says Carnival to me the first thing I think of is colour," said Iris. "Needless to say I took a photo when I passed those...whatchamightcallthem?....round things with awful sweet stuff inside.
They look good though :D...
and the rabbit shot was just pure luck, which goes to show you never know who you might bump into in 'the Carnival of life'".
Amanda, created this magnificent Untitled mixed media, watercolor and oil pastel.
"The idea of carnival, to me, evokes bright and flashy color and bold lines," said Amanda. "I've been very busy with preparation for the e-course I'm teaching with Natasha (we start next week! See more info in the TST sidebar or at my blog), so it was a joy to spend time just playing with color today. Now I need some cotton candy and funnel cake!"
Do you feel like celebrating all that's within you? Then join in on the fun.
The next theme is.........."The Music Within". Celebrate music!
