WEEKEND JOURNAL PAGE
IF YOU PLAY, BUILD, TRANSFORM, THEY WILL COME
For the months of Nov. and Dec. I gave you some possibilities, posted here so you don’t have to look them up
The weekend Journal page began when I realized I neglected my art in blogging, while that had been the first intent to blog . My next thought was
maybe you would like to join me in posting your art (not crafts!) project -on-the-way
(All Seasons on Sunday goes on as usual. Don’t want to miss out on that fun!)
Scroll down to the bottom for the limits (rules) and possibilities
Weekend Journal Page (Nov. 10)
this small oil painting was posted with the title,
“If you play, they will come.”

My impromptu potholder
to show you it’s just for fun, and to keep yourself accountable, not having to impress anyone else but yourself, a quick project . You can show Unfinished projects:)
My potholders started showing holes. The store had only flimsy, or dorky designs, I started knitting a granny square with thick wool. On the photo you see the back of the granny square. Guess I need to knit a second one, eh?
Is this art too? Art is not only decorative, but can be functional too:) I don’t use a pattern, or instructions, so this is “raw materials ” …
Nov. 24 . Follow the progress of another artist

WEEKEND JOURNAL PAGE – A Grand Idea
December 1, 2017
I need something to keep my neck and shoulders warm in winter, since low cut neck lines were so popular. I love cowls, but I want something that wraps around, like a “scarf” that is square or oblong. I have some dark ones, but I need one in neutral or light color (s),
My GRAND IDEA (which is the beginning of a creativity) was to make it myself. Am missing the creative off the beaten path things I saw in Los Angeles, so … the idea was, why don’t I make it myself?
There are the woven ones, but for freezing temperatures, I need something that is a little thicker – knitted or crocheted. Here is the beginning …. starting with one stitch, next row 3 stitches, 3rd row 5 st., you get the drift ….
may be not a huge project, but done without a pattern.
Some random additions: landscaping , or wood, metal, anything – sculpting without a given pattern/instructions or copying an existing sculpture is also working with raw materials!
About commenting at a wordpress blog,
links in comments do not give me any problems! So, Blogspot people, go ahead:)
– anything “made” by you, or
– follow the progress of an art work of an artist you know (ask their permission!)
– does not need to be finished. Post the progress of your art piece in the next post.
– no copy of something made by someone else
-to owners of a meme/challenge, please do not use a photo of your own challenge
post for the Weekend Journal. It’s a form of advertising!!
– Creative includes
any visual (that also means a shape/sculpting in any material, etc.),
auditory, fiber, culinary, literary or any other artistic endeavor or idea.
– Needs to be”raw” materials. Scrap-booking is nice, but it’s not art.
– It does not need to be new. Re-creating an old T-shirt and using it as the lining of a purse, or make it into a hat, is fine,
– With knitting and crocheting, origami, making a miniature boat, etc. no instructions allowed for the piece you show for Weekend Journal Page.
ENJOY YOUR ART ENDEAVOR – NO DUE DATE TO FINISH IT
