Letters | Art Journal

As a welcome distraction from the Valentine's madness of hearts and candies, Jennifer from the Art Elements team came up with the theme of Letters - which can be interpreted in many different ways, romantic or otherwise. It's inspiring how a tiny letter is the building block for a word, a paragraph, an epic. How… Continue reading Letters | Art Journal

Leafy Ring Dishes | Art Elements

I almost don't remember when I last played in the monthly challenges hosted by the Art Elements team. Challenge host for this month, Caroline, chose the theme Foliage, and I was sure I wouldn't find much time for creativity this month either. Then somehow, in the eleventh hour, I did find an opportunity to play… Continue reading Leafy Ring Dishes | Art Elements

A Shadowbox Begins

Wow, did this month fly by or what! It feels like only yesterday that I thought the Art Elements theme of the month, Repurposing, was perfect for a project that I'd been thinking of, and it's already reveal time. Many thanks to Lesley Watt for hosting this theme, since it turned out to be the… Continue reading A Shadowbox Begins

Art Journal: Birds of Prey | AE Challenge

I'll admit, when Cathy came up with Birds of Prey as the theme for this month's Art Elements Challenge, all I could think of was making owl polymer clay beads and use them as earrings. Not that there's anything wrong with owls, but I've already made owl drawings, owl doodles and owls in macramé, and… Continue reading Art Journal: Birds of Prey | AE Challenge

Sweet Dreams Earrings

Another month ends, and brings another Art Elements reveal with it. Lindsay Starr hosts this month's theme - Moon. At first, I thought this was perfect to try out gel prints with a recently accidentally bought gelli plate (we found we'd ordered a round one instead of a square one.) But I still have hit-or-miss… Continue reading Sweet Dreams Earrings

Elegant White Earrings

It's time for yet another reveal at Art Elements, and this month, Claire Fabian has thought of 'White' as the theme. I ran through my ever-growing to-do list of projects, wondering if white could be the star in any of them. In the end, as it happens more often than not, I made a brand… Continue reading Elegant White Earrings

Image Transfer: Coasters

I've not participated in challenges lately due to my creativity having become sluggish, but this month's theme at Art Elements - Stars by Laney Mead, brought forth some tiny sparks in my right brain. 🙂 By the time I thought of joining, I'd already created some Diwali gel prints using the only stencil in our… Continue reading Image Transfer: Coasters

Swirly Pendant | Art Elements Challenge

I'd thought I would have loads of inspired ideas for the Art Elements 'Swirl' theme, but I found myself continually revolving around only one concept - swirled polymer clay lentil beads. However, I couldn't really think of anything much different from a couple of lentil bead buttons I'd made a long time ago, so it… Continue reading Swirly Pendant | Art Elements Challenge

Helical Key Fob

This month's Art Elements challenge has the theme of Seed Pods, and is hosted by Jen Cameron. When I signed up for the challenge, I didn't really have any idea of what I would make, but soon after, I was reminded of seed pods from my school days. On our way to school and back,… Continue reading Helical Key Fob

Stitch Marker Case | Art Elements Challenge

The team at Art Elements hosts themed monthly challenges, which involve a reveal and blog hop at the end of the month. The theme for June is Sunflowers, picked by Sue. I read the theme announcement, and recalled this small, cubic container that I've appropriated for storing my stitch markers. I've always wanted to decorate… Continue reading Stitch Marker Case | Art Elements Challenge
