Being Creative!

Last month I signed up to the Being Creative project on Julia Crossland's beautiful blog.  Every month she posts a new theme for the project and we all go away and create a piece of art that reflects that theme.  It is an opportunity to create art for the sake of creating art, an idea I just adore.

March's theme was Garden.  At first I wasn't sure what to create but eventually an idea came.  I had created a similar page in my art journal based on Andrea Schroder's Creativity 101 ecourse.

Countryside page from my art journal

I love flowers and so they were the inspiration for my Being Creative art work.  I used a variety of techniques to produce it and had such fun playing around.  I started by covering the page in green tissue paper and then used a flower stencil create flower shapes in the background using a white dabber.  Using stamps, I added the flowers in pink and purple and then stamp smaller flowers along the bottom.  I love sparkle and had to add flower sequins, jems and brads to finish it all off.  I thoroughly enjoyed this months project and can't wait to get started on next's months theme of dessert!

  1. Absolutely WONDERFUL Sarah!! I love the colour, the texture and the eye catching jewels, it's a really lovely piece of art! Can't wait to see what you do for next months theme!

    Sending love, Julia x

  2. It looks great. I love all the different things you have used.

  3. Very pretty. Love the contrast between the texture and the "bling".

  4. That's really beautiful! I love the texture the tissue paper gives it :)

  5. Thank you all for your lovely comments! I have really enjoyed looking at the different ways people interpreted the garden theme. Can't wait to get started on next months project! x

  6. Sarah, your garden art work is beautiful lots of lovely colours and textures... and I love the quote on the back...such a great idea.. I'm beginning to start looking at what leads to or from a project in term of other influences.
    Keep up the great work!
