Inspiration Avenue Challenge-Show and Tell

Happy Monday to all of you!  Instead of presenting you with a topical kind of challenge this week, I thought it would be fun to have a good old fashioned Show and Tell session.   Remember how fun it was in school, to choose  your own topic?

Whether you're into making tags or assemblages, paintings or sculptures, shadow boxes or photographs, this is your challenge.  What will you do?
Go ahead.  Spend the whole week looking through your art journals or portfolio and choose a favorite piece or take out a new medium and have fun playing with it.   Post something old or post something brand new.  You can do whatever you feel like doing.  Just remember, the official deadline for your Show and Tell project will be Sunday, March 10, 2013 at noon EST.

At that time, we can all have fun hopping around to each other's blogs, seeing what you brought for Show and Tell this week.    I can't wait to see what everyone does.  By the way, the "Show" part is the art and the "Tell" part is the comment.  Please don't forget to leave one when you link up!

See you Sunday!
Cheers,
Lou Anne

boy does that bring back memories Lou Anne! Is this a book you altered? I chose to link up my latest post playing with tags.

I decided to revisit some old collage work I did a few years ago, from my "freaking creepy" period :D XXX

I'm not sure they even did Show and Tell when I went to school, but I do remember it from when my kids were in school. It was something they loved doing, so now it is my turn. I have all kinds of "stuff" in my files that I could use for this kind of post, but I went for one that I did last year that I have, for whatever reason, always liked. It has the potential to be thought provoking if you go beyond that actual picture. Anyway, this is fun ... Thanks!

I really enjoyed painting this picture. I was taking a challenge to only use black and white and wasn't expecting to like the end result at all. I was tempting to add other colours but I stuck with it and when it was finished I liked it so much I got it framed and it's now hanging in the hallway!

Hi Lou Anne, I just entered a link to a fairy door that I made for Evening (and let's face it, me too). Thanks for hosting such a fun challenge!

Oh my I am new at this and it is the first time I have ever linked up ...I think I may have popped on twice, my apologies. I am so enjoying the blog experience ...it has now been a full month and what fun!

Lou Anne said...

I am so glad that people had fun with this challenge. I think we should consider doing it as a regular event. I can hardly wait to visit everyone's blogs.

I chose this piece for my show and tell because it is one of my favorites.I truly would love to go to Paris for a vacation. I believe this is a good mixture of mixmedia with starting the background with gesso, then watercolors.Continued with collaging, stamping and rubon lettering.

Very interesting challenge - both to work on and to tour what everyone's posted.

I've posted a panorama I made a couple of years ago of New York Harbor. It doesn't fare well on the limited real estate of a computer monitor, so I haven't used it online before, but any time I come across it, it makes me happy and I think it says something about what I most like to do - see more of life because art makes me look at it with fresh eyes.

This is such a great idea - a no holds barred showcase :)

Thanks for hosting!
