More than Words dt member April challenge.

Good morning everyone,

and welcome to my first blog post for the month April.

The new month started with an amazing weather, lots of sunny days.
My garden begins to bloom in the gentle green colors of spring.
I love getting up early to feel the morning dew on my skin.
What could be more beautiful on earth than listening to the birds, the insects humming, with the morning coffee in hand.

For the month of April this is exactly the theme for our April challenge from More than Words.

Here is the link:

The word: EVERYDAY
The creative challenge: BUGS and BIRDS.

Something I do "EVERYDAY" is my Tai-Chi exercises. The slow stretching of the muscles and tendons, the conscious breathing... For me, it is part of a healthy life. For the creative challenge "BUGS and BIRDS" I have decided to stamp lots of bugs on my background.
I created on yupo paper with watercolor an abstract background.
After that I stamped with StazOn Ink lots of BUGS and words on my page.
Black Indian Ink with white strips for my highlight.
A photo of my EVERYDAY activity "TaiChi" as my focale point.
A little bit writing with my Sailor Japan pen and my layout was done.

Helpful tips for the challenge...

We do many things in our EVERYDAY lives that we barely think about. It’s time to get those memories recorded in your art! What is something you do in your everyday life that you would love to look back on and remember later? Or is there something special you do every day that you’ve never thought to create about. Here is your chance! We need to see in your project how our word inspired you. If it isn’t obvious in your work, then please explain it in your post.

The creative challenge is easy – just add some BUGS and/or BIRDS to your project. You can add just one or as many as you like.
