Sunday Photo Share


It was a lovely day yesterday and we toured the International Festival in Cambridge yesterday. One unique visitor was the little guy above. Love his shadow as well!

Shadow Shot Sunday
I was able to get a few other shadows as well - there is just something special about the hunt for shadows - join in the fun here.







Flowers 
There were more flowers in the park at the festival - so I captured quite a few.

ART on Friday


Fall has arrived and already the temperature has dropped a bit. Will need to wear pants soon!
I have created a fall intentions board for a number of years and I created one for this year as well. It gives me a visual of what I want to accomplish in the months ahead. A bit of accountability.


I hope to be much more focused on my writing this season.


Colour Me Positive
The theme at LuLu Art this week is "home" and the quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes is dead on.





Art Tags
I used the colours of fall from my scraps of gelli papers to create these tags. L hope to stencil them but not sure yet what.

Sunday Photo Share

Most dramatic photo from the past week had to be this of a fire viewed from the track restaurant at Woodbine Racetrack.. No casualties thankfully. We had a lovely lunch and had a fun afternoon at Woodbine.


Shadow Shot Sunday
This morning I played peek-a-boo with the sun - but that makes for more interesting sky shots. Here are a few from this week - including a couple from Woodbine:







Join in the fun searching for shadows and check here to see shadows from around the world.



Sky Watch Friday
Skies have been so interesting this week - with lots of clouds, both white and gray. Visit here to see wonderful skies from around the world.







Flowers
It is sad to see the end of summer as it means the end of so many flowers in our gardens. Here are a few from the past week:

ART on Friday

Mid September already - and soon to be fall. It is also the Full Harvest Moon today. Change is in the air!
Here are a few things I have been working on this past week:

Colour Me Positive
Ae are already on Week 38 of this challenge  at LuLu Art. 
This week the theme is on sleep. I looked for some other quotes for the journal spread - to stresss the importance of sleep in our lives. We really do need at least 7-8 hours a night.



Art Tags
I created 7 collaged tags and then added a couple of quotes. I will need to find other quotes as welll for the other tags.




I also created another tag for the ABC Wednesday weekly challenge -Chief Joseph for  J.(This quote is so appropriate for our world today.)



Show Your Face
Kim Dellow hosts a fun weekly challenge "Show Your Face". Here is a quick face I sketched this morning.



ATCs
I created another set of ATCs for a swap focused on inspirational quotes:

ABC Wednesday - J and WOYWW


For this week at ABC Wednesday, J is the letter to focus on.

J is for Chief Joseph - a Nez Perce chief.




Check here to see what others around the world do for J.




WOYWW

Each week, Julia Dunnit at "Stamping Ground" encourages us all to share our projects and our work spaces for WOYWW.

I created the art tag above at my dining room table - easy enough when I create collages.

ART on Friday - on Saturday




Yesterday got away from me - from appointment to shopping to reading - just did not finish my art. But today I made time for art - a much needed change.

Colour Me Positive
hard to believe we are in week 37 of this challenge from uLu Art. Each week offers a new theme and quote to use in our art. This week it is on change. "Changes will bring new opportunities for happiness and fullfilment."



Art Tags

Here's the last few layers I have added to the tags that I started last week for Tara Leaver's fun 7 day challenge.
Her I have added the torn papers.



And here arethe finished ones - with stamping and used stamps of birds.


I also completed another card in the ABC Wednesday challenge -I for India.



Art Trading Cards (ATC)
I created one APC this week for a swap. I was asked to create a card with a male musician using a used stamp.




Art Cards
The challenge posed by Tara inspired me to create some art cards. I finished them today.
I had a number of used stamps highlighting First Peoples of Canada and also some quotes I felt drawn to. With the Truth and Reconciliation report exposing the horrendous treatment of native people in Canada through the residential schools.
One quote by Henry David Thoreau really touched on what the Truth and Reconciliation tribunal tried to do - to get at the truth and make Candians really hear what was said.



Here are some more of the cards:
