August Challenge: Eyeglasses/Spectacles

We do a lot with our eyes. We see, observe, perceive, notice, spot, glimpse, view, look, stare, glance, ogle, peek, peer, examine, study, inspect, recognize, identify.  I thought it would be fun to create art with the theme of "eyeglasses" or "spectacles," which many of us rely on to do all of the above. Serious or whimsical art, your choice.  And the color scheme is your choice, too, this month. Can't wait to "see" what you create!
Below are two Wikimedia Commons images, and some inspiration from our design team. Have fun!

July Feathers! Bright Saturated Colours

Hi folks!
Are you having a good summer?
I hope so.
Or a good winter, if you are in that part of the world.
Did you know in Canada, we spell some words differently than they do in the USA?
Like
COLOUR
We put a "U" in it.
I just can't write it without the "U".
Colour evokes all sorts of things for me,
happy, vibrant, joyous musings
It makes me think of music.
And music makes me think of birds.
And birds (this time) made me think of
FEATHERS.
So that our theme for July
Feathers.

Here is some inspiration for you,
from Pinterest and our talented Soartful Design Team

FRIENDLY MONSTERS

Monsters are always bad and scary, aren't they?

All together now

"OH NO THEY'RE  NOT!!!!!!!".

Monsters can be friendly, good fun and just adorable.

Remember the films "Shrek"? and "Monsters Inc."?

And what about the Loch Ness Monster?




I made a Loch Ness Monster quiltlet.




This friendly Grokiza eats only red flowers





and the Paper-eating monster eats only paper.






Here's what the design team made.


















Any form of art and craft is acceptable and if you don't have a blog you can leave another link to your art, for example to flickr.

You have until Friday 6th June to show your artwork and you can enter more than once.

Just leave a link to your friendly monster(s) in the comments below.

We're all looking forward to seeing and admiring your friendly monsters!
