Art Journal Cards

Finally got my act together to do Emily Falconbridge's Art Journal Weekly Card Challenge, altering one card a week to a theme specified by Emily on her blog. Having got a bit of confidence from doing the canvases, I decided to use acrylics on a pack of Tesco playing cards. The prompts were:
1 - Something you are proud of (things I make)
2 - What is powerful to you? (music)
3 - I am (a statement for yourself) (an artist)
4 - A symbol you love (a harp)
5 - Some ephemera from your week (receipt from the Green Welly, my weekly stop off for tea/petrol/toilets/sweeties etc)
6 - Love (simple that one!)
These are great fun, just hope I can keep up for the rest of the year.... Other than that I tried to make a good start at healthier living today - some exercise, porridge for breakie, lots of fruit, veg and water, and boy I need my bed now! Still, small steps by a recent flu sufferer so let's I can keep that up too!
