Featuring Fabulous Creative Every Day Participants

April 16th, 2010

Every so often I feature the work of some of the amazing Creative Every Day Challenge participants. There's so much great work happening out there and we may not have time to get around to see it all, so I hope to share with you some work you might not have seen. I love the way you're all being inspired by the senses theme and I hope this work will inspire you to play with it even more this month!

Eva, of the blog, To be determined, created this super cool zentangle featuring the 5 senses:

Kim Mailhot from Queen of Arts, created this hilarious and creative "Spring Walkabout" post, which I encourage you to read. Here's just one of the beautiful photos from her post.

Julie Engelhardt, who blogs at She Dreams of the Sea, posted a picture of luscious berries along with this delicious poem. Yum.

Painting "Rocks and Mussels," Terrill Welch of Creativepotager's blog, found herself remembering the "smell of seaweed, the salt air, and the roar of the surf." I feel like I can taste the salty ocean air when I look at it too!

On her blog, Bobbi's Art, Bobbi Lewin has created gorgeous pelican images that are delighting her sense of sight (and mine too!)

Susan Loughrin, from the blog Organicsyes, has been doing a project she calls, "A Melody a Day" and recording these melodies on video. Here's her most recent one, called River Song. Beautiful!

So much beauty! Thank you all for sharing your creations with the world. You inspire me and so many others!

I’m honored to have my work featured with such a group of fabulous artists! Thank you Leah:)

I have so enjoyed looking at what all the participant’s create!

Thanks so much for giving us a brief sample! So many people participate that it’s hard to go look at it all. I love the snapshot you provided. :)

Beautiful work, all!

Leah thank you so much for honouring my work and painting “rocks and mussels.” I owe the reminder to engage all five senses while creating to you:) Your Creative Everyday monthly themes and your blog are a necessary anchor as I sail the seas of my creativity.

Let’s celebrate! Please come by and have a chocolate covered strawberry from today’s post.

Thanks Leah for featuring my 5 Senses Zen Doodle. Without you and CED2010, I’d never have known such a thing as a zen doodle existed. I’m quite enjoying creating them! A very zen feeling to work on them – aptly named!

I am always SO impressed with the amazing creativity in this group!

Thanks again!

This is a REALLY cool post! I love the work that you’ve featured here — Eva, Kim, Julie, Terrill, Bobbi, and Susan.

Thank you.

Leah, thank you so very much for this lovely gift:) Your commitment to supporting us through our creative journeys continues to bring joy and creative flow to my days.

Thank you for what you do…your giving, your imagination, and your deep love for the creative spirits in each of us.

Thanks for including me Leah, and thanks for bringing together so many amazing creative souls!

I have to tell a story. I love the name of the blog to be determined. When my granddaughter Sophie was younger – perhaps three, she asked what was for dinner. My daughter said that’s yet to be determined. Sophie loudly wailed, as only Sophie can, “But I don’t like to be determined!”

Wonderful post featuring great work by our group members! I get behind in looking at all the different blogs so it is nice to get a heads up in one post with such variety of expression. Leah, thanks for all that you do for us… getting us to gather here and there is just so much inspiration. Yummy!

Thank you Leah for including me in this great post. There is so much talent, beauty and heart in the Creative Everyday Participant’s contributions ! It is so very inspiring!!!
A true feast for the senses…;)
Happy Monday !

Great topic this month, so many ways we can interpret our senses in our art! Wonderful features of our members.

This week, I’m getting ready for an art show on Saturday. I did post a little tutorial which used some art papers I had for some artsy crafty items I’m making for the festival:

Using What I Have

Have a great week! jodi

What a wonderful ecclectic mix of talent & beauty.
