It’s time! A new month brings the Artlet review and with it the slideshow featuring February’s creations. You may remember that my self-imposed theme was “red.” Red is my favorite color and I thought incorporating a little red into my 15 minute art activity each morning would be inspiring and easy. The plain truth is: After about a week of exploring “red” I became a little bored. Maybe it wasn’t cold enough this winter or possibly I was distracted by amazing sunrises with plenty of red accents.
But… a promise made is a promise kept in my rule book and I persevered. The focus was on collage with magazine images, scrap booking ephemera, and incorporating my fountain pen. Do I have a favorite? I can think of a few, however I had the biggest surprise when I detected a polar bear in the red color pool on a tag (look for February 11th Artlet in the slideshow). I had a lot of fun every morning despite the little struggles of creating something meaningful. I realized that I am very much drawn to words, as was obvious in January’s line up. But going back to words so soon would be too easy. I continue to stretch myself and have decided to incorporate fabric into the March Artlet challenge. Stay tuned and watch out for the next Artlet installment in early April!
