Elfsisters' Art Adventure Starting Next Week

I'm here to announce that my Elfsister and I are starting an Art Adventure - and we want you to join in the fun!

Each Wednesday we will be blogging about our adventures, and inviting you to join along by hosting blog link parties! These are a great way to bring more readers to your blog, and I think the adventures that we are going all will be good for all of us artistically, and did I mention fun? Lots of fun to be had!

We're going to be under taking two main adventures - the first is Wreck This Journal:

I've been wanting to do one of these for a long time - and Meri got me the journal! It should be here in the next few days - which is massively exciting! For our Elfsisters' Art Adventure we are going to do one page a week and take turns picking which page we do. One page may not be a lot, but we both have jewelry shops to keep going, and that gives us a chance to fit it in with our busy lives!

Meri's already started the book, but she's only done a few pages and figures that she can always add to them. This one is my favorite - I'm really excited to do it!

The second part of our adventures is going to be a monthly drawing/painting art challenge. Meri is letting me pick the first one - so May is dedicated to Celtic Art! I've always wanted to learn to draw Celtic knot work, but you don't have to do knot work - do whatever you want to that relates to Celtic art!

Doing two adventures, Wreck this Journal and the Monthly challenge - means that anyone can enter! You can do both challenges (we will), or you can choose just one. Either way, the point is that you have fun and that we grow all grow in our artistic lives!

So how can you join in the fun? Follow my blog, Meri's blog (, and come join our new Flickr group! ( If you want to do Wreck This Journal you can get it on sale at Amazon (only $7.77!) And you can always start your Celtic Art Adventure now :)

That's so cool! I never heard of that book, what is it exactly? I do love the page in your photo!

I'm so excited about this!

Mandy- you can see the pages that I did here:

Basically each page has different instructions- collect fruit stickers, toss the book from a high distance, catch the page on fire... all sorts of different things, but all of them fun! The point is to make the book yours and to not be afraid to make a mess out of it in the name of creativity. :)

Oh how fun!

I can't draw at all but I just purchased a book on celtic knotting for jewelry.
