Give Love Project’s Fourth Year

2nd yr. winner Jennifer Bradshaw with her family beach heart “Nature Love”.

Though I am still going to be away from the blog for a bit, I didn’t want to miss posting about “The Give Love Project.” Plus the annual Give Love Project is on it’s fourth year! I couldn’t miss that 😉 .

 

Starting now until the 29th of this July, make a small or large art project expressing some form of love. Take a picture of your creation and leave it where others may find it. You can use chalk, sticks, stones, leaves, flowers, mud, pine cones, or anything else that will not harm or damage the environment. You are welcome to share your pictures to the links near the bottom of this post.

 

Project Details

  • When: From June 23rd until July 23rd.

  • What: For an entire month I challenge everyone to create love for others with a small or large art project expressing some form of love. Remember to snap a pic and write in of your experience. You may send in as many photos as you wish. There are more examples in Heart Art Series. I found another good one on Pinterest.

  • Where: Create your piece anywhere as long as it doesn’t interfere with laws or is harmful for the environment.

*Because of recent events there won’t be any prizes this year, but I hope that doesn’t stop you from creating your nature heart. ❤ *

 

Nature Walks: 1-30-17

A few weeks ago, the snow returned once again, the tease of Spring was just a quick peek.

But, a fresh coat of white always brings the contrast of other colors forth.

At the end of my walk I reflected my gratitude towards the snow and left with a full heart ~ <3.

 

A Change of Plans

Sometimes plans don’t always go the way you want them to. Our Winter Nights Drive to look at Christmas lights got canceled due to last minute changes, so I decided to tap into my creativity to pass the time. One night of play turned into a week of different art projects~ ❤

 

The heart picture above was carved out of a fallen pine branch over 3yrs ago. It needed a touch up so I shaved it down to give it a better shape.

I happened to look down at my desk and captured this picture with my camera. I find natural layering fascinating. I have pictures of my trip to Asheville, North Carolina under the glass to my desk. I needed better lighting while carving so I brought my lamp closer to the table. You can still see shavings from my carved heart.

I played around with watercolors on a new type of paper made out of rocks instead of trees (Mineral Paper). This is not a good paper for watercolor, but I wanted to test it out for myself lol.

Here I had put a piece of glass over my original drawing and colored with a different color to give it an underwater feel.

With this past week being Christmas I did a few personalized gifts. This one was for my boyfriend’s brother, I drew him as a Pokemon trainer with his favorite Pokemon, Squirtle.

This one was for his dad, I made a portrait of his fur-boy Johnny.

 

Hopefully I will keep up my artwork on into this week and those to follow, it was fun to feel like myself again ^_^.

Leaves that Fall

Leaves that fall,

 Begin to call,

For something more,

Upon the floor.

A heart you say?

Okay lets play.

I’m helping inspire, for our “Give Love” desire. 😉

 

Morning Hearts

The bright greens and yellows of Nature’s hearts give off an intensity of wakefulness. And although my heart art have little color, the lighter tones in the others give me a sense of calm. All in all the morning was filled with dynamism and stillness, the perfect morning blend. ^_^
