Art Collaboration – Part four

20141129_190522 (2)This week I am adding words to my piece. Since we have already done texture, color and subject, a big part of this step is finding somewhere to put words. I thought my most serious obstacle to overcome would be choosing the best words, but with all of the activity involved with Thanksgiving, my biggest challenge has been sitting still long enough to get things done.

My faves from Instagram

sjonesdapkingsI can not imagine that anybody does not know who Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are, but if you don’t, I know you have heard Amy Winehouse’s album Back to Black. They played the music on that album. I think the first time I heard them was 2006 or so and I loved it. Sharon Jones is fierce soul awesomeness. Her voice is like the best of hot toddies, sweet and strong. They appear in Cole Haan’s (@colehaan) latest campaign and are set to release new music for the holidays. Can’t wait.

christmascardsI am about to be knee deep in Christmas cards, but I wish I had some of this pantone to play with while I made them (@sugarpaperla). Sad puppy face.

I expect to ship out the last of my aforementioned Christmas cards on Monday, so I am really artjournallooking forward to doing holiday things with the kids and making art journal pages, though I am pretty sure they will not turn out as neat as Sandy Allnock’s (@sandyallnock).


Getting ready for December

Can you believe that Nablopomo is coming to an end? I have had such a great learning experience that I have decided to continue with the posts, though I will most likely take one or both weekend days off. I feel like the challenge of creating content on a daily basis has really helped me in my writing.
