September Square-A-Day Project

Hello Friends,

I hope you are enjoying my daily art squares as much as I’m having fun creating them!

I tried to tell a story in each art square with watercolor or Copic markers and a touch of collage. Sometimes I added a little Micron black pen too.

My stories for September’s square-a-day project are simple, something I did or saw or felt for that day.

I was inspired by the artwork in this book by Roxanne Evans Stout:

I hope you share favorite squares that may inspire you in your own stories…

Cheers! πŸ™‚

P.S. In case you are wondering, square #17, the words say, “Ferris Wheel.” It was the name of a paint sample. I thought it looked like a child’s name. Our local fair occurs in September. πŸ˜‰

    • Hi Laura Kate, I am teaching myself mindfulness to help β€œfree” my mind from chronic pain and learn to focus on my breath. The butterfly symbolizes letting go and freedom for me. β€οΈπŸ¦‹πŸŽ¨

    • Hi Beverly, I look forward to seeing what you create for October! Sometimes it helps me to have a theme or limit my art supplies. So glad I can inspire you! 😍 I also write the date on the back of each card and a few notes. πŸŽ¨πŸ’•πŸŒ»
