Creativity Boot Camp Day 6 "Fluid"



"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home" (Twyla Tharp)
This was the opening phrase of boot camp yesterday and what a lovely one it was!

The day's prompt was "Fluid". This threw me for a while because I was thinking very literally - looking at taps in a different way! When I put my more creative head on the ideas started to "flow" (ha ha).

Paint
Ink
Brush stroke
Long Hair
Handwriting
Movement
Dance

I made two ATC's featuring dancers (and I plan to make a few more).

Definition - "Fluid - a body whose particles move easily among themselves".




The second assignment tday was to break the rules! Hey, why not?
But, what are my rules? I'm not even sure I have any when it comes to things I make?
I love to try out new ideas and techniques.

I suppose I quite like symmetry and organisation - does this show in my work? Does my work have its own characteristics yet? Probably not.

I quite fancy having a go at altering books, collages and artistic journalling - so perhaps that's next for me - a small step from scrapbooking and ATC's.
I DID draw the ballerina on one of my ATC's this time though - so that's a slight change!

  2. These are really pretty. I don't know much about scrap-booking or scrap-ology (I had to google "ATC"!) Also, thanks for visiting my blog.
