Artist's Play Room #3

Last week's challenge was doodle/embellish/decorate your initial/name/favorite word. I was inspired by Stephanie Corfee's new book called Creative Doodling & Beyond, which can be purchased at Amazon, if you want to, you can click through from my site (see lower sidebar. The challenge was wonderfully successful. Let me show you all the submissions of the fantastic work this week! But first, I'm so late to my own party I haven't even written a blog post about my own submission, sheesh.

I adding jewelry to my line on Etsy. This is my first completed piece that will go up for sale. No, correction, this piece is going to a new blog friend who's doing a feature on me and giving away this piece and one of my original bookmarks too. I'll post about the giveaway soon so you all can go enter! The glass lockets are original pieces of art behind glass. They're double-sided, glass on either side and the artwork is therefore (obviously) double-sided. Here's my doodle submission this week, I took some creative license with the word "doodle", lol.

If you haven't read the rules & guidelines please go here. If you've landed here after this challenge has been completed but would like to participate in a current or future Artist's Play Room Challenge, just either click on the APR button in the sidebar or click here and you'll be taken to the latest APR challenge!

Are you having trouble using the Mr. Linky to add your submissions to APR? Well here's some help! Just click on HELP and you'll be taken to my Linky Help Page. Cool, huh? I've got your back!

This week I was threatened inspired by my mom who has been bugging begging me to draw her the little bridge outside the apartment building in which she lives. It's an adorable little curved bridge made up of stacked stone. It spans over a little stream that's dry at the moment because it's winter but will be gurgling soon, I'm sure. Here's the picture she took that I'm supposed to draw for her.
So, this week's challenge is "create art from the inspiration around you". I have several examples to help you think outside of the box.

Remember, you can make your art any way you want, any medium (drawing, painting, jewelry, collage, stamping, card making, crochet, photography, digital manipulation/art, oils, pastel etc.) My main rule is "you don't have to be great, just create!" It's good for the soul. The Linky closes EARLY next Saturday so get your art back here and link up before that!

See you all later.

  1. There certainly is a lot of talent out there. Some exceptional pieces.

  2. fun coming here...that is a sweet bridge...thanks for a new challenge! Will be looking around to see what grabs me this week.

  3. I haven't been able to participate last week, but I'll try to this one!! :))

  4. Sounds like a fun challenge! The locket is gorgeous--hope you have many sales!

  5. Can't wait....I already have my idea brewing in my mind...I wonder if it will have a rose or two on it.....LOl, maybe a tulip.....Thanks for all the encouragement.....


    p.s. Your locket rocks....very clever!!!

  6. You know, I didn't think I had time to enter this week but then I realized what I was working on WAS inspired by things around me. Woot! Hope it wasn't too much of a stretch. Some of the things (like other artists) aren't really near me but the real catalyst, a junebug, was ON me. Is that near enough? ;)

  7. I'm here....ready for the next challenge....LOL

  8. So around me are 5 little boys all under the age of 8. I live, breath, eat and are assaulted by, I mean inspired by movement, sword fights, conquerors, energy, chaos, galumphing, calloohs, callays and frabjous days! I did this sketch for The Twenty Minute Challenge a few weeks (months? centuries?) ago, but decided to add watercolor and use it for this APR topic, for my tribe are indeed colorful beings:-)!

  9. just made it!!!! bit of a close call but glad I got there...xx


Please leave me a comment, I've sure missed hearing from you!
