A new project

The Sketchbook Project: 2011 A new endeavor. This is a project that I am doing in collaboration with many other artists. The Brooklyn Library is hosting and looks pretty cool. The sketchbooks are going to hit different cities on tour so check out if they'll be near you at http://arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject

I am hoping to make the tour stop in Chicago. How exciting!

Project 52


Here are weeks 12, 13, 14, &15.

Prompts:
A little giggle is good for the soul.
Fishtailing out of control.
Live in the direction of your rays.
Spin.

I feel Spin needs a bit more umf! Needs to have some pop or shine, glitz, and some journaling. My apologies for some blurry images. My camera is going a bit wonky....some are crystal clear others are blurred. I took them all at the same time, same exposure, and same place. So not quite sure why the fickleness? Perhaps I have different objects on the page that appear smaller or larger, closer or farther ....and it's having an issue focusing them. That's my best guess.



More from Project 52

More prompts:
Ribbons
Did you have a lifeline?
What makes you bloom?
Move along.
Summer fun!

Most of these prompts were done with tape, markers, sharpie paint pens, Gel pens, stamps and ephemera. All paper is water color with an initial water base of multi color to start. I am enjoying watching this project come together. The book is getting rather bulky but that is the wonder of watching the project develop. I never quite know what inspiration will come out of each prompt or image. I have a number of word prompts written down to give me the ease of plugging along at this project.
Thanks so very much for stopping in and continuing with me on this journey. Much appreciation for your patience if you have been following this project from the get go.

The following two posts are also new so check them out and let me know what you think of my altered items.
Enjoy!

new work

Gosh it's been a while.
Finding the time in the summer is super difficult to sit inside and work on the computer. When I took on project 52 as a way to make me blog....I had no idea how much life would get in the way. I am still working - just finding it hard to take pics(because the camera was lost for so long) as well as blog. In the process of catch up. I am about 4 entries behind in Project 52. Not to hard to blast that out considering the pages are all different dimensions and are inspiring.

My prompts were:
Hanging by a Thread
What color is hard to work with your magic?
Home
What color is you Aura?
Bingo!
