... exploring in my creativity further in 2017

15 February 2010

Thank Goodness for the Eraser! Or - Will I ever Learn to Draw a Straight Line?

The HOME theme continues, so I decided to sketch mine, from a variety of perspectives. I don't think I can draw a straight line even if my life depended on it! But try I did. They are not terribly exciting and appear a bit faint due to my "tentative" sketching technique but they are a bit clearer if clicked on. It was an interesting experiment and I'm still on track with CED2010. How about you? My Creative Every Day this week's efforts were:

Monday: Front and East.

Tuesday: North Side.

Wednesday: South Side.

Thursday: Back and West.

Friday: Overhead.

Saturday: Overhead including more of the lot.

Sunday: And now for something completely different! The sketching was interesting but much of the other experiments I have done have been much more fun. I like the fun ones. So for Valentines Day, this is my fun one: HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS. A message many of you have displayed in other creative ways. I hope you had a great Valentine's Day! 

In addition this week, I also did a couple of other little experiments. I went to the art store. (LOVE going to the art store even if I don't know what half of the conttents are for.) I came away with black pastel paper, so here is my first effort. One of my orchids looks almost like a toad lily with variegated purple and mauve smudges and splots. (Deliberate misspelling unless that is really a word.)

At the office supply store I found blank cards, so I made Valentine's cards for my family - first time since I was a litle kid! One of them opened upside down though - oops! Oh well, it was still appreciated!

I also managed to continue with my "creating a fit body" theme and exercised 5x this week again. And I finshed a great new interview for a series I am working on, so I have been very happy about that.

How was your week?

I am looking forward to seeing all the great new creations as you post to Leah's Mister Linky!!!! Now what a great creation THAT was!
