4 Days of Adventures With Daily Paper Prompts

Once again, Tammy at Daisy Yellow has enticed my participation in making art with a simple daily prompt. And, while I've done the first 4 days ON PAPER, once scanned they sign away all rights to staying the way they WERE when I scanned them!!


Day #1 was Paint A Rainbow. I had painted some thing or other and cut it all up so I had only to paste the pieces of my somewhat linear rainbow and here's what that netted me:


Day #2 was Windows. Since I have about a gazillion Leftovers from shapes I've cut out, I really looked forward to this one. I still have a bunch of my fishies and sea critters left, too, so this seemed a grand excuse to pair them up. And the result of THAT?!


Of course, by the time I got these scanned and started digital fiddling with them... 



Which I found pretty cool, a combined Rainbow[s] in Window[s]. FUN!!!

Onto Day #3 and Drips... Oh my. I couldn't really get things to play well so my dripping mostly was a mess and I ended up spraying water and making even more mess. Again, Picasa saved the day BEcause I ended up making a sort of lemonade out of my lemon-drip attempts...




It never ceases to amaze me what happens when I make "a mess" that is transformed into something completely else once the digital fiddle takes the stage!!!


And finally, Day #4, Flowers... I admit, I am mostly NOT one to draw, but Tammy offered up such a simple tutorial that I thought, Hey, what's to lose?! And so I give you my flowers, digitally fiddled with, but of course ;~D



And wouldn't you know... today while I was just BEing, I picked up my paintbrush and watercolours and created this:

Lovely work with Tammy's prompts! I did not end up getting started with the Daily Paper Prompts, so I love seeing what you are doing with them. And I never mess around digitally, so it is interesting for me to see the fun you have with it. Enjoy!

I love your digital playing...I want to explore that, I will add it on to the list of things I want to explore...I certainly should never be able to say I am bored! :)

I love your cut up linear rainbow, and your sea life...stunning!
