More Tag-a-Day Stencil Challenge

Here is the next bunch of tags from this months challenge. I've discovered that doing the backgrounds are the easy part and then trying to figure out how to finish them can be a little more difficult. I think this week in Creative Studio we will be discussing ideas for focal points and finishing our tags.
Day 14- Fly

Day 15- Fearless

Day 16- Believe

Day 17- My Story

Day 18- New Day

Day 19- New Growth

Day 20- Explore

Tag a Day Stencil Challenge goes on.

Although it's been a bit of a catch up game with my Tag a Day Stencil challenge this month I have persevered and I am enjoying it.
Day 6- Explore

Day 7- Adventure

Day 8- Soar

Day 9- Dreams

Day 10- Sweet

Day 11- Dragonfly Dreams

Day 12- Live Everyday

Day 13- Life
There have been some new people join the facebook challenge group but not many posting yet. It's not too late to make a few tags with stencils and share. Or maybe a stencil project not on a tag. It is getting near the end where I could use some motivation and inspiration to keep going. Don't worry about doing one every day just do what you can, when you can. It's all just for fun after all.

Zentangle ATC's

I must admit that this months ATC theme was probably one of my favourite. As you probably already know I love to doodle or Zentangle, however you like to call it. Lately it's what I do most often when watching TV. I have a book just for this purpose. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you have most likely seen some of my pages from it. It was so fun to see how the others in the group did their Zentangle ATC.





Are you a doodler!? Have you got into the Zentangle craze?

Imagination is Boundless Workshop

I had a great time this past Saturday with these wonderfully creative ladies doing the 'Imagination is Boundless' workshop. As always, great fun and inspiration to see what they create with just a little guidance. 



Next workshop coming up is 'Life in Layers' Aug. 28. Still a few spots left.

New Challenge for August.

July's collage challenge taught me a few things, both about collage and about myself. I learned that is was great to concentrate on one thing for a whole month. It was a great way to learn more about collage art, something I hadn't done much of before. I learned that I have a hard time sticking to one thing for that long but that it is probably a very good thing for me to do more often. I also learned that it was great to share it on social media. It was a great way to get feedback and support to keep going. It was also inspiring to see the art of others that joined me in the challenge.

Day 1- BE
So for all those reasons and more I'm going to try it again this month. I think I'm going to make it a little bit easier this time though. Collage was something pretty new to me which made it more of a challenge. So I've chosen something that I've worked with quite a bit more and something I love to use in my creations. And that is STENCILS. 
Day 2- True/False

Stencils are such a big thing right now and I can't seem to get enough of them. Often I'm asked what can you do with stencils and I think the possibilities are endless. Once the idea came into my mind I couldn't stop thinking of different ways to try them.

Day 3- Life

I've decided to do the challenge on tags. The ones I'm using are a #8  6 1/4" x 3 1/8". This is a nice size to work with but I may go to a larger size once in a while if this becomes too restricting. My idea with these is to make them into a small sample library of stenciling ideas. I will make them into finished pieces but not too complicated for the most part. 
Day 4- YOU CAN

Day 5- Reality in Imagination
If you'd like to join me I'll be calling it the August Tag a Day Stencil challenge. You can post your creations on the face book group Dragonfly Dreamers Monthly Challenges. Please don't feel like you have to do the same as me to join in. If you want to use something other than tags go ahead, feel free. If you just want to do one once in a while, not every day that's fine too. It's just fun to join in how ever it works best for you.

Happy Creating!

July Collage a Day end.

I did it, I made it to the end of my July collage a day challenge. The Tinman and I were away the last few days so I collaged on the go. With a small kit of a glue stick, scissors and a few pens I managed to make the last 3 pages. We were in Prince Edward County for a few days where there was lots of great pamphlets to pick up and use in collaging. 
Day 29 County Colours
Day 30 Nests
Day 31 County Arts
Although it was maybe more of a challenge than I anticipated and sometimes I had to do some catch up days I really enjoyed it and have decided to try another challenge for the month of August. I've started it already and will be sharing with you in the next few days.

Thank you to those that joined me in this challenge and maybe more of you will join me for the next one. 

Happy Creating!
