Jaye of artquiltmaker fame has a creative challenge type thing to get you to be creative, think out of the box and practice your sketching / drawing skills. Apparently she has been doing this for quite a few years now (and where have I been?) anyway I finally found out about it and want to try........... and play :-)
She gives you a word and you make a work of art in any way shape or form you wish, taking that word and showing it in your art. I just got paper 53 which is a sketchbook app for my i pad and spent a very enjoyable rainy afternoon playing and sketching with it. My drawing abilities are not very good, especially with the i pad, but that is the point of this whole exercise isn't it? To do and improve by doing ;-)
So here is my thought process with arrangement - could be flower, personal, musical or even funeral. I think music and thought about making a small art quilt with the word JAZZ as below, (having two Z's)
unfortunately my saxaphone looks like a pipe and my clarinets look like a cross between a flute and a bugle. I even went so far as to cut them out of fabric thinking that would make them better - NOT!
So I bagged that idea and just went with the sketching - more fun on a rainy afternoon anyway :-)
This is sort of a jazzy zentangle type of thing - there's that pipe sax again!
And for some reason when I think of musical arrangement I think of Henri Mancini
and the pink panther theme :-)
This was fun - thank you Jaye!
