Posted by Dindrane on November 28, 2007 in art, challenge, links |

No, maybe these aren’t all “art,” but they’re fun: “Weird” mailboxes What would your ideal mailbox look like? Design one that says something about you, your artwork, and your aesthetic! (though of course in my area, I have to worry about rednecks with baseball bats either ruining my work or breaking their arm on my […]

challenge: three versions of one photo

Posted by Dindrane on November 13, 2007 in art, challenge, links |

The Distraction Lab blog has an interesting entry today about painting three different versions of a chosen photo. This is an excellent idea/challenge; you could do as they did, using matching, complementary, and then triad colors, or you could just try different styles of painting, such as abstract, pointillist, etc., or using different media even. […]

great ideas for 2008?

Posted by Dindrane on November 4, 2007 in alerts, challenge, links |

Idea the First: I really like this idea: 50 Crafty Projects in 2007. The blogger basically did just that–made 50 crafty things over the course of the year and posted her results. I’d like to try that for next year; it would basically be just about 4 items per month. Art or craft would apply, […]

This is kind of an interesting project: it’s the year in a life of Geek +Nerd’s closet. Every day, she posts a picture of what she actually wore that day. Trystan? You up for this? The idly curious, the bored, the servants of the Man, the fashion-challenged–all would be fascinated. Everyone needs their own personal […]

Another good site found by Nancy Ward over at Paper Friendly: Zentangle Zentagles, explained at length on the site, are basically a way to divide a paper (or any surface, really) into segments, and then work on each segment at a time. The examples are mostly pen & ink, but I don’t see why you […]

I have just joined a very interesting and creative group called Tiny Traders, which makes and sends to each other fabric postcards.
