What’s a woman to do, in a world gone mad? The Three Muses Challenge this week is steampunkerie. I love steampunk, but wasn’t sure I’d have images that would work in my pile of magazine and junk mail clippings. I sifted through and found some things that seemed to fit when they were all put together in my collage journal.
If you’re interested in reading some steampunk, you might like Boneshaker by Cherie Priest. I enjoyed the Audible version.
The Three Muses have invited us to visit the Land of Odd with our art this week. I pretty much live there most of the time, anyway! I had fun bringing this gal to life. It took me a while to find just the right words in my pile of magazine clippings, but when I found them I knew there were the ones. This is also my entry for this week’s Whimsical Wednesday.
This week’s Take a Word theme is Architecture. This is collage, paint, pencil and a hand carved stamp in my collage journal. Click the image to enlarge it. Love this theme, so I’m off to see what everyone is making.
When I saw this week’s challenge theme of Fish over at Three Muses, I knew I wanted to make a page in my collage journal. I remembered saving this big fish image from a magazine way back. I glued in a friend to help him out and painted in a few details like the bobber and hook and bubbles. Then I looked through my box of words clipped from magazines to see if anything suited, but without really expecting to find anything. Better Luck Next Time just jumped out at me. Love me some fun fishy art!
The monthly art challenge for March at Willowing & Artist Friends is bunnies, so I drew this little guy. This is watercolor pencil and Pitt pen in my sketchbook. I added the word Friends digitally after scanning. I also plan to enter him for Whimsical Wednesday, which I just found. I can’t resist a challenge with a name like Whimsical Wednesday!
