I was invited to participate in a cool blog hop sponsored by artist, Karen Friedland (creator of the new Art Sparks card deck) and I'm thrilled to have a chance to share my process with you.
The Art Sparks card deck is a project driven deck that has 31 cards with a combination of inspirational journeys and projects to spark your artistic playtime. Karen asked me and 8 other artists to pull one card from the deck then complete the project using our own style and imagination.
I picked card number 11 (pictured above) and here's how it went:
I love how simple the page was, how quickly I was able to complete it, and the result of a two page spread that says a lot to me (each symbol holds a personal meaning for me in my life) and the quote is one I use as an affirmation from time to time when I'm feeling stuck. Easy peasy!!!
I'm curious, what sparks your art?
Do two things to be entered:4th Quarter of The Journey Within where we are making handmade art journals and filling them with wonderful ideas and images. In fact, you'll get a triple treat because my blog hop partner, Tori Weyers, is teaching in TJW in December!! WIN WIN WIN!!!
