So, let's not go there. Let's go here http://4x4friday.wordpress.com/ and here http://www.inspiremethursday.com/ and here http://fftwistedtuesdays.blogspot.com/. There are so many excellent sites on the internet for artists and writers who need a jump-start or a kick-start (whatever your preference). Between blogs and websites and photo-sharing communities, there are literally thousands of prompts and challenges.
I've been watching the three mentioned here for awhile and decided to take the 4 x4 challenge of "Faces" last Friday. The idea is to created a relevant piece of art within the requirements, blog about it and link your blog on the site. So this is my first effort. Only regular rubber stampers and collage artists may get it, but that's okay.
One of my other faves, because it is a bit off the wall, is fellow ZNE member Suzan Buckner's site Fluffy Fatbottom's Twisted Tuesdays at http://fftwistedtuesdays.blogspot.com/. Suzan and her partner in crime for this challenge, Heather Robinson of http://creativesolace.blogspot.com/ come up with the greatest themes. There's lots of great art to see. I love looking at Suzan's art wherever I run into it. She's active in a challenge group for every day of the week and more. You can learn about them all at her blog http://thriftycollageartist.blogspot.com/.
So much to see and do! Barely time to post this Lamb Chop photo. Gotta love Lamb Chop.
Also, Happy Birthday this week and soon thereafter to the dear and published! Lisa Kettell (she of a million blogs and sites and groups) but mostly fearless leader of The Faerie Zine http://thefaeriezine.blogspot.com/; my sister-in-law Judi and her husband Doug, my boss Michelle, the glamorous Caroline (of the beaded necklace post), and my neice Suzanne, well on the hill at 45.
