Every day can feel like a birthday when you celebrate what's within you by simply creating. That's what these artists did - they celebrated their heart, their inner beauty, their vibrance and love of life. These works will make you want to create and embrace all that is within - today and everyday.
Come on...let's celebrate!
Kelsey, creator of Caffeinated Frenzy, shared "The Birthday Girl," Work in progress wool scarf.
"I've come to realize that at my best, I tend to be, well, conceited," said Kelsey. "Things are usually about me in my mind. So naturally, this scarf reflects myself :)"
Althea, creator of Salvaged Expression, created this awesome piece.
"For this week's challenge I decided to go hunting through my wax stash," said Althea. "What's more birthday-ish than candles after all? I found some wax that while it looks like really tasty cupcake icing isn't really birthday-ish at all. I call it Secret Birthday."
Amanda,creator of Persistent Green, created this breathtaking Untitled mixed media in progress.
"Okay, so my abstract piece might not look much like a birthday celebration . . . but maybe our party is at the beach, and we're playing in sunshine and ocean," said Amanda. "Or perhaps our celebration is an outdoor barbecue, with brilliant blue sky and piercing sun. Or . . . mabe I just wanted to play with color!"
Maureen, a talented artist, created this gorgeous work.
"I've been intrigued by the effects Amanda has been getting with watercolor over oil pastels, so decided to give it a try," said Maureen. "Celebrations for me always mean joy, so that what I was trying capture in this 9x9 picture."
Bird, creator of Crow Tarot Tours, created this beautiful piece.
"Every day, if you think about it, is another birthday. We are constantly reborn to ourselves... and to those around us," said Bird. "This quote came from the blog 'The World's Strongest Librarian', and its creator, Josh Hanagarne. It caught me hardcore & wouldn't let me be until I'd found a place for it.Here's the post from which it came: http://worldsstrongestlibrarian.com/5985/how-to-have-tourettes-part-22-every-second-is-a-choice Amazing stuff."
"Apologies for the text quality. It was a bit delicate for the resize to take well. I fiddled with it a bit, but it's a work in progress."

Natasha, creator of Doodlestar, created these pieces.
This flower was born after a Play-doh session with my little one. I just fell in love with the colors and it made me think about how we are all so unique. We are all so filled with color and light!
The frame was an accident. I started painting it and just love what happened when I stopped thinking about how it had to be and let it just be. It needs gloss but the colors make me so happy.
Are you excited to create?? Well, good then dive on into the next theme: Surfing the High Seas of Life - what does it mean to surf though art, life, crafts? Share the colors, the excitement, the ride as you see or feel it. You don't ever have to have surfed to bring this one to life - all you have to do is imagine and dream! Oh and you have to include a swirl of color somewhere within your work!
