New Year, New Art, New Rules

It's been a while since our little collective was active, so it's time to start anew. Over the holidays, a couple of the artists got together and mapped out a new plan. Even this is a bit late getting started, but every day is a new chance to jump in, right?

Instead of taking turns posting a challenge, and waiting until all artists have contributed before the next challenge is created, we'll have monthly challenges. If we have the time and the energy and the creativity to do a project, we'll post. If not, no harm, no foul ... no waiting.

Here are the year's challenges:
  • January: Journal covers
  • February: birch bark
  • March: clothes pins
  • April: artist trading cards
  • May: vase/candle holder
  • June: shrink plastic 
  • July: origami/paper art
  • August: paint chip art
  • September: buttons
  • October: beading
  • November: dough art (salt, play dough, polymer clay, pastry, bread)
  • December: wreaths 

I've created some boards on my Pinterest account that are filled with ideas for each art medium. Scroll down to the bottom of that page to find the boards marked "AuralArtists." Ideas from Pinterest can be used if you wish, but mostly the boards are jumping off points for inspiration.

For January, I plan to make a cover for a new Gratitude Journal. How 'bout you?
