Ain't No Ninny

Where Creativity and Everyday Life Collide

And the Sun Will Shine on You.


Okay, this isn’t really about the sun…or about you.  It’s about a starburst.  My very own special starburst. Special because I created it.

Remember the Daisy Yellow Index-Card-a-Day challenge?  Yes, well, it ended on July 31st.  I’m sure you had enough of seeing my index card art week after week.  But just as I started to panic wondering what I was going to do with all of my time since there were no index cards to create, Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow Art came up with a new weekly Art Journal Tangents and Tactics series.   What it consists of is viewing a short video of a new technique that Tammy demonstrates and then creating something using the demonstrated technique & materials.  This particular series is only once a week (whew!) for a few weeks but it will give me an outlet for my creativity and it will show me how to create new types of art.  Love it!

This is the *starburst* I created this week in Art Journal Tangents and Tactics.  Easy peasy and lots of fun!  It was a very meditative exercise and one I want to do again.

Happy creating!
