#365DaysOfArtPBQChallenge Week 3, Exercises 15-21

I decided to join in on Sherry’s 365 Days of Art Challenge at Powered by Quilting.  You can read more about the challenge here.  I still am catching up but did get last weeks done.  I am no artist, but I am enjoying the challenge. I hope that it sparks some creativity – and some chuckles as we go along.

Some are easy, some just take a long time, but they are rather fulfilling in their own way.  I don’t really have paints yet, and may continue just with colored pencils and flairs.  I feel a little better showing this as a collage rather than each one.  It makes it seem less intimidating.

Here’s to some fun scribbling next week!

    Wow, love this collage! It is so true that it gets better and easier with practice, designing, that is. Seems to start to flow more and hit you during the day at (not always good) moments. I need to hang a little sketch pad around my neck lol

      That would be attractive! I need to just play a little more so getting into this for that reason is fun and causing me to think a little more.

      You are getting what you asked for this week! It is fun to play along and just get thinking about patterns, design and what I find hard or easy.

    Abbie, you are hysterical! It is fun doing this and some are there as starters so it is a good lead in. Mostly, I am enjoying that it is getting me to think about patterns and sketching, something I don’t do very much of. Collage a few or show the favorite – I am surprised and enchanted by people’s comments.
