The Challenge is 4 months long, celebrating the 120 colors of Crayola Crayons, one color for each day. For my submissions I drew and colored an image with the crayon of the day and enhanced the drawings with collage. Today’s color is: Melon.
Marion was so fond of Moe, she would follow him through all the ocean.

Time for more crayon collages! This occasional posting is a preview for next year’s Color Your World Challenge! From Jan 1 to April 30, 2018 I’ll be participating in the annual CYW Challenge where participants are challenged to take a specific Crayola Crayon color for the day and post about it – art, photographs, poems – however the Muse strikes you! This will be my third year and I’m determined to not let it make me crazy!! (There’s a 120 colors + 120 days = 120 postings – in a row!!!)
Here’s part of a shoe series I’m doing – colors, Purple Pizzazz and Violet (Purple):
I’ve also gotten on a cat kick so that the last 40 or so collages all have cats in them.
Weekly Weather this weekend and then who knows? I’m packing my craft stuff in an anticipation of a move at the end of August, so I’m not sure how much new stuff I’ll be posting through August and September! But, I’ll find something artsy to post about!!
This is my final catch-up post for Weekly Weather. The topic is ‘Wet’ – I went with water and fish!!
To remind you, I altered an atlas with the weather-themed collages. To see the other entries, please click on the page “Weekly Weather Challenge.” Click on the badge below to find out about how to join the challenge!

I’m late this week getting this posted! Blame it on me! Anyway, this week’s Weekly Weather topic is Flood. Another one that gave me pause to think. I went with waves and a mermaid, plus a few fish.

Flood, right page – do you see the mermaid?
Flood, right page detail.There are extra holes in the mermaid’s face. I couldn’t decide if I wanted her to face forward or profile. I decided on profile.
Go HERE for more of “Flood”!
Sharing a few pieces of my fishy art work!
