Welcome to Week 36 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!! I've been busy with a series of artsy projects. What are the chances that came with a side of sewing?
Read on to find out...
SUNDAY - I enjoy beginning my week with a Zoom call with Knittingsuek...
MONDAY - The Labor Day holiday was spent at home. Art-ing a good bit of that time, I happened upon the ABC Printing Challenge from Gelli Arts. I was so excited to have a reason to use my gelli plate that I got caught up on the first 5 days of the challenge before dinner:
TUESDAY - I spent the day amazed by this glorious view of the neighborhood...
... Because when I stepped off the porch and looked the other way, my barometric headache was clearly explained:
I did some color play with the FABRIC prompt for the ABC Printing Challenge and even added a bit from the scrap bin. Hey! There's Light BLUE in it so it counts for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, right? Not a conventional use, but there you have it:
No fabric included, but this journal card for the #artjournalinseptember challenge is all about the Light BLUE (sky) for my take on the BUTTERFLY prompt:
Today was the start of the Inchie Challenge. I cut up an early painting of mine to create a series of small "canvases" that measure 2 x 2 " square. These will be the jumping off point for additional layers. I used a me-made LEAF stamp and did some doodling for today's prompt:
WEDNESDAY - It was a slow day in Joyful QuilterLand. I did some mindful drawing on a sparse bit of that old painting I'm using for the Inchie Challenge. For my attempt at the TWIST prompt, I mimicked Amy's example from the email she sent:
This afternoon, I enjoyed spending time with LeeAnna during our weekly Zoom call:
Notice that we are both sporting the RSC Color of the Month! :o))
I couldn't resist including this incredible sky photo, taken just prior to our evening walk:
THURSDAY - Work... After a bit of art:
You can't tell by the art shared, but I was having a day. So much so that I actually LOST at Wordle today:
After work, I ...
... And was inspired to get even further ahead on my #artjournalinseptember project, with what may be my most favorite journal card yet. The BOLD prompt had me reaching for a "clean the plate" gelli print, a bit of "use it up" watercolor paper, and my me-made foam stamp. I also grabbed the brightest Posca pens in the pen cup to spread the color around the card with some outlining and doodling:
FRIDAY - Knit Group was meeting, but without me. I had just enough time to add (rain) SPRINKLES to another "ocean" collaged bit for the Inchie Challenge before leaving for work:
You KNOW what that means, don't you???
Next up, Wordle...
Along with Quordle:
This afternoon, I did some Light BLUE art shopping. That spiral bound watercolor pad was marked 50% off at Michaels and the double stick tape was on sale at Hobby Lobby... The ONLY store that had anything measuring less than a half-inch wide! I'm hoping it's stronger than the tape I used on my Washi Tape journal:
SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge! While I'm not making blocks this year, I am ready for a rummage through this Light BLUE basket to see if I can come up with components for my September 2022 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge project which will combine my PUMPKIN(S) prompt with the RSC Color of the Month:
I hope you will join me in visiting Angela @ So Scrappy to see what the RSC Quilters have been up to this week. I'm hoping to have something quilty to share soon.
Until next time...
