It's time again for Creative Tuesday's hosted by Mmm at Hot Toast and Jam!!
This rounds theme was "Wind/Windy." My first thoughts... ummm... wind isn't something you can see, so will a blank page suffice? I promise the wind is there. Honest, just look a wee bit closer. Can you feel, uh, I mean, see it?
A blank page wasn't going to cut it. I convinced myself. So, I began thinking of windy things. Chicago? Windmills? Flying things? Pinwheels. Ugg. My pad was bound to sit blank.
A few days ago I tried again. My brain leapt to three masted ships on the high windy seas. Flags and banners wavering in the wind from the tall masts. But, the drawing just wouldn't come out.
So, last night in a last ditch procrastinating manner I picked up my pad once more and I can't believe how easily this came out. When it's right, it's right.
I give you "Windy Hair," or is it "Hair a Blowin'," or maybe "There She Blows."
(Ok, I didn't torture the dog with this, but I did make a mess! And I would certainly say that making a mess this way is loads of happy!!)
A little closer look. Can you feel the breeze?
But look. I signed it. Yup. Swished that W right into a circle. Maybe my swagger is coming back?
Honestly, this is turing into one of my favorite things to be a part of. I enjoy seeing the creative results from the other participants. I enjoy being a part of something so much bigger than me. But most of all I like how it's stretching me and giving me a reason to pick up my pad and fill in a page or two.
(So, if you have a pad that itching for you to give it attention... pick it up already and join in!)
