Weekly Art Challenge ~ Words

I love to use words in my mixed media art,
whether it's painting on text from a book page
or using quotes and words as part of the design.

This week we are back to Words as our theme!
 
As the temperature hovers around 0° F, I'm constantly
wondering when we'll have our first taste of Spring.
It's a bit too early in reality, but why not use
Nature and Springtime in our art to cheer things up a bit?



I love the graphic look of all these Spring-y words.
 

Not nature inspired, but I was first drawn to this awesome
coffee cup and then to the creative use of text.


Good advice of course ~


I love the whimsy of these next two pieces.
 

 

A pretty journal page.
 

I'd love to see your art inspired by nature and Springtime
in which you've used WORDS in the design!
Have fun creating, and link up here by Sunday, February 22.

Weekly Challenge February 9 - Show and Tell


It's time for Show and Tell!
This is one page I made recently.  I loved the intense colors of this kit.
 
It's very close to Valentine's Day so I'm going to share a few of my Valentine-y favorites.  I made these for a Valentine's challenge here at Inspiration Avenue.



I made this with a digital scrapbook kit that I fell in love with.  
It's called "Follow Your Heart" by 2 Curly Headed Monsters.  
You can purchase her kits at Mischief Circus here.
This week, why not share a piece that you're currently working on, something you've been dying to share somewhere, or a favorite Valentine you've made.  
Post no later than Sunday, February 15 at noon EST.  
And remember, whatever you share, follow your heart!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Lou Anne aka Misplaced Mermaid
