Wow!! It’s seems like a long time ago since I hosted a challenge at Inspiration Avenue. So when Shel asked me if I would like to do one … I said yes immediately!
This week I have chosen two words which remain my constant inspiration when making art … Aged Beauty. Aged Beauty can come in any form … patina of time, ravages of time, treasured memories, people from the past, or even tales of old. Create something … anything, in this theme, in your chosen medium. You can choose something old to start with, or you can choose to make something look old. Dream it and create it!
As always, deadline is 12noon EST on Sunday 27th Nov 2011. Please direct us straight to the post of your creation and we will take over from there. One entry per person and links should be left on this post. Further guidelines on our weekly challenges can be found on the sidebar.
Here are some images that I find inspiring … perhaps they might inspire you in some way too …
I will leave you with a little quote I found :
Age is not all decay; it is the ripening, the swelling, of the fresh life within, that withers and bursts the husk.
