Inspiration Avenue Art Challenge-Seeds


Hi everyone.  I'm Kim P., the newest member of Inspiration Avenue.  
This week I am hosting a challenge called SEEDS.This is my first host position for Inspiration Ave. 
 Lou Anne is guiding me through the steps.

Spring is almost here.  I chose the theme Seeds because spring has many themes of life and rebirth. Everything changes.  Our bleak winter melts away and we become inspired with life and what we see and feel around us. We hear birds singing in the morning, buds blossom, and baby animals are born. Gardeners are happy to plant their seeds for the summer.

I was thinking of making a flower mosaic out of seeds that I have in my kitchen cupboard,  using popcorn seeds and pinto beans, then adding other mixed media.  Or perhaps I might make a painting or a drawing of vines and flowers.  Seeds can be done in any medium and any idea around the theme.  The field is open.   It can be digital or arts and crafts.  Anything that inspires you to spring into the seed theme is perfectly acceptable.

By participating in the challenge and linking up with IA, others may take a look at your creativity and network with you. The idea is to provide everyone an opportunity to share their work, visit other blogs,  and comment on the work of others.   

Anything that inspires you with life that emerges from a seed is the idea.

I hope you have many visions and much fun creating, whatever comes through you.

Here are a few pictures I found on the Internet to tickle your imagination concerning the Seed Challenge.

I am looking forward to seeing your work.  
Good luck and happy seeding!

Thank you Abby, though I was quite ill with pneumonia, Lou Anne was my guide and mentor for the technological aspect of the challenge.

Thank you Jan, I hope your imagination soars. Happy Seeding. Today is a perfect day to plant, it is Spring and double bonus, it is sunny.

Congratulations on your new post as design team member at IA! I took some liberties with my interpretation of the theme. Blessings!

I did not mean to make my name come out so big! LOL. It must be because I use a Mac. I love the samples.
