“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”

Week 2 of AEDM (Art Every Day Month) over at Creative Every Day. It somehow felt as if I did a lot less than last week. However, when I look at the turnout below I got to say – sometimes a feeling can be deceiving.
Starting with last Sunday it was all about collaboration with my husband. He writes fiction in his spare time and is up to part eleven of his Miltonville Mine Mystery. If you haven’t seen the latest, and dare I say 2nd to last episode-cliffhanger-kind-of-thing, you can check it out here. As usual pictures were provided by yours truly.
Like this one – a thick forest on fire and fog, lots of it! This is a Photoshop composite entirely.
During the week, of course, it usually is the time to zendoodle. This is my doodled ‘eye’.
With all the zendoodling I have been doing lately, I felt like I had to draw a face again. So, I did. I tried ‘whimsical’ – not sure if I’ll try again. For this one I used my Caran d’Ache water-soluble color pencils (Amazon affiliate link), yet, as you can see, I did not add any water, but left it dry.
Oh, and then there’s the handlettering course I am following. It is a challenge, the prompts are posted here if you care to join. They are alternating daily between lettering and doodling – quite fitting for me right now, don’t you think? So, on Tuesday the prompt was ‘XO’. This is my interpretation…
Wednesday’s prompt was ‘neon’ and it was supposed to be doodling. I guess I mixed it all up, but I really,really like how this one turned out, including the little mishaps.
My last two are both lettering, first ‘you are enough’. I practiced basic handlettering with my newish Tombow dual brush pencils (Amazon affiliate link). I also used them in the ‘neon’ picture above, where you can see that you can blend them. Isn’t that neat? Got to practice that some more, but I am definitely intrigued.
And the quote – well, it says it all, doesn’t it? Be positive! I used my calligraphy pen and nibs plus india ink for this one.
And that’s a wrap for today. This is my sARTurday post and I would love for you to link up your creative projects below so I can check them out. Have a wonderful and creative weekend all.
Whoops, I almost forgot, one night I also re-worked my ‘about‘ page. There is still something missing and I will be changing a couple of things, but check it out and let me know what you think, will you? Thank you so much.
