The prompt this week at The Artist’s Play Room is Mugs inspired by Tracey Fletcher Kings love of tea and attempt to do 61 mugs for this year’s ICAD (Index Card A Day).
I couldn’t help myself; I have a mug I got in Australia in the 90’s when visiting my Mum in NSW. Whenever I visited I would be dragged around all the local craft workshops and stores and galleries. My Mum brought it for me hoping perhaps that I would be inspired to go and live there! But nah, I am Kiwi through and through. Note, despite her extolling the virtues of Aussie, she has kept her NZ citizenship despite living there for over 30 years!
Sorry Trace, it is revolting to drink out of as the outside is rough clay and it feels horrible on your lips. However, it makes an excellent pencil holder for my inktense pencils. Also it reminds me of Mum in her better days and the interest we shared in art and crafts.
You will note that I have got some text about the Summer of Colour Blog Event that Kirsten of Twinkle Twinkle like a Star (http://twinkletwinklelikeastar.blogspot.com) is convening. I am taking part in that and our job this week is to advertise it and if we do we have a change in winning a prize, hehehe!
This week we vote for the colour we will use next week when we start to party for 6 weeks. There are some delicious combinations, I voted for Lime and Purple. However, I noticed that Citron Green and Turquoise is leading the stakes. Whatever, all the choices are delicious. I am not sure whether to have a theme or not, I’ll let the muse take over! If you like colour and would like to celebrate the summer or like Trace and I, you want to brighten our winter, come and join us. Oh and it is for any art medium or craft.
Have a great week everybody.
