This is the final day of Art Every Day Month and I have really enjoyed taking part.  If you haven't yet visited some of the other creatives I encourage you to.  Here are my efforts for the last few days...

Day 25

This week I've been making a lot of backgrounds, and made me some tagsfrom some of them, which will be used in some of the mini journals that I have been making
Day 26

This is a lined mini A6 journal, did some stitching on the cover will be adding some additional sparkly things to it.

Day 27
This journal cover is made from a mince pie box and cereal box, covered in recycled painted paper, paper beads, the contents is made from old cards stock. I did some stitching and have some more decoration to add, will do a post about it at some point.

Day 28
Been collecting quotes, this is a hot chocolate container covered in pinted recycled paper, fabric quotes lable sewn onto paper and houses some of my favourite ones that I will use in projects.
Day 29
Really taken with reusing materials, these are cds that I've covered with recycled painted paper and will be making some mini books out of these as well

Day 30
Back to pen and ink been working on this fellow for a few days, this is what I do to unwind, very therapeutic!

Looking forward to seeing the other creatives that took part in Art Every Day Month

Art Every Day Month (AEDM) Day 12 - 16

Day 12 to 16 of Art Every Day Month  and there is still such a flow of creativity coming from so many talented people, here are my efforts for the last few days, I am hoping to be able to post a bit more regularly and get round to seeing the work more artists.

Day  16
This is a small piece I did and it is made from recycled paper that I would normally shred, painted and layered then this image came out from the paint in the 'Gut art' style.. The words she is holding says....'To someone else in this world you are a miracle'.

Day 15
Hope was the result for day 15, going to be adding some really bright colours to this piece.

Day 14
Another quick sketch makes me feel good especially when I have to focus on other things that are not quite creative, finished it the following day.

Day 13
I then added the detail as a way of relaxing and getting myself in the creative frame of mind.  She has the words 'Peace' on her neck.  Not sure where this one will lead - she looks almost snake-like, she may be asking for some colour, but will most definitely be used somehow in another piece of art.

Day 12
My pen and ink pieces I initially did a quick rough drawing which I was going to add some shading to.

Art Every Day Month (AEDM) Day 6 - 11

I fell a bit behind with the posting for Art Every Day Month, but have decided the main thing is doing some art every day.  I can say that I have, so I am pleased with that.  I have started with most recent first and worked my way back.  Been playing with paints along side the pen and ink work....

Day 11
Here is my efforts for today, started out with a quick sketch then filled it out. 
I find it quite relaxing doing these pen and ink pieces

Day 10
Because your gorgeous.....we all have a gift and talent that is waiting to be
expressed into the world, we have to take a step every day into the uncomfortable

Day 9
As I do the challenges I go through mixed emotions.  We are continuosly
questioning ourselves, our decisions and where we are at any given time. 
Often where we are is where we are meant to be for that season. 
We try and find our place in the bigger scheme of things but when we understand
what we are meant to learn at each place and appreciate the gifts that will come.

Day 8
Day 8 painting reminded that even though we go though the hard times
our hearts will one day heal, It's my best friend Barbara's birthday this month,
it's been 8 months since she passed, I know we don't forget those trying times,
as much as while we are in the midst we will get though to the other end.

Day 7
This is mini journal I made out of recycled paper, started to do some mini paintings in, the images are not prepared before, I did the background then waited for the image to come out.  Letting go, moving on for me is about growth, we have to grow otherwise we stand still.

Day 6
This was day 6 sketch using pen and ink, I like the effect that you get with the pens. Been using the Faber Castell Pitt Pens, after this one decided to take a break for a few days and do some painting.

AEDM Day 4 and 5

Day 4
Still keeping with the pen and in theme this young lady came out to play. 
The bird is whispering the words for her to remember,
think I might add colour later.

Day 5
These women with wings are still my favourite at the moment, reminding ourselves that we are 'fearfully and wonderfully made' in the image of God. 
There are some inspiring work coming from other participants of the
Art Every Day Month challenge, take a look....

Art Every Day Month

Took a stroll over to Leah Piken Kolidas's blog and she is doing a challenge for November - Art Every Day Month, if your interested in joining in don't worry that the month has already started, there is no time like the present to be creative!

Here is my offering for today.  I am still keen on the pen and ink drawings, I find them quite soothing.  This is one that I have finished, and I am sure that I might use the image in some of my paintings and other smaller pieces of work.  I'm looking forward to doing some painting tomorrow... I've been creating backgrounds using whatever mediums come to mind as part of my 'Try something new for 30 days'.  There are so many great challenges to try and get inspired....what are you waiting for!  Stay blessed!
