As you may know, I host a weeky challenge with my french speaking friends… I have a thing with inspirational quotes and with zentangle patterns. So each week, I make a card, with a quote on one side and a doodle or a pattern on the other side. I really love spending this time to ponder and to reflect on the words while drawing.
SO, I have this french challenge going on, and I made some cards with english quotes I like too… Which led me to think that I could also offer a weekly challenge, but for my english speaking friends this time (Hey Bev 😉 ).
I use home made cards. These are card box cards I painted with my daughter a while back. We just painted plain white cards with acrylic paint, played with textures and colors. One of them have her hand print on it, and when I saw it, I decided I had to do somthing meaningfull with these cards. You can use home made cards or bought cards, blanck postcards, whatever you want. you can even use a notebook (it would then be « one page a week cahllenge » 😉 ). It’s easy, fast, and when you feel down or just need to reflect on your feeling, you just pick a card you made and let the words speak to your self. It’s efficient and really meaningfull.
So if you are interested, here is the first one. We can also share our cards on the facebook group I created to host pics of my previous challenges, and the current french one.
There we go!
This week, I chose a quote from a song that really helped me dealing with my sorrow when I lost my only daughter because of DIPG last march. So it seems right to start with a deep but positive quote.
So this week, you have to make a card with
- the quote « It’s only love, it’s only pain / It’s only fear that runs through my veins / It’s all the things you can’t explain / That make us human. » Civil Twilight, Human
- the pattern vercut
Let me add a quick note to sum it up:
- Each thursday, I’ll give you a quote and a pattern to play with. You can use both, you can use only one of them, it’s up to you.
- You have till the next wednesday to make your card and share it with us in the facebook group (just ask to be added, and I will open the doors wide open to you )
- The goal of this chalenge it just to offer yourself a time to have fun with pens and cards, to ponder on words, to enjoy a ME time. We tend to forget about ourselves so easily! And sharing is such a beautiful thing to experiment in our life!
Welcome to this new challenge!!!
Here is my card, I can’t wait to see yours!
