Yes, I’ll do that

I’ve signed up for 3 shared activities / classes this week, although they start later in the year and not all at the same time.

30 days of lists in March seemed interesting and immensely doable.  Each day participants are sent an email with a topic to prompt us to write a list, such as  today’s playlist, recipes to try or guilty pleasures.  Participants use different mediums to record their lists, such as a minibook or smashbook or art journal. 

I thought about doing 4 x 6 cards for the Project Life protectors but then decided to do something totally different for me.  I’m going to incorporate the tangle / doodles that I’ve been playing with again to cover a 12 x 12 sheet.  I’ll include several lists on the one sheet and when it is finished start another.  Here is the start of my first page – the border goes all round the page.  The border tangle is hibred  and the one behind the title is diva dance

30 lists title

Then starting in April I’ll be participating in Cathy Zielske’s Clean and Simple, 3 month class at Big Picture.  She is my favourite scrapbook designer with her clean graphic style. I started scrapbooking after stumbling on her books in my local library. I’ve enjoyed every one of her classes hat I have taken. 

And then I signed up for Liberate Your Art 2013 after Rinda posted the link.  Each participant contributes 5 postcards of their art which Kat generously swaps around and sends out.  Now I have to decide which piece of pixel magic to use, and whether to make all the postcards the same or have several designs printed.

I know Miriam is signed up for the lists and Rinda is liberating her art. Will I be seeing anyone else there?

I think your plan for presenting your lists is genius! I wish I could doodle, because I love the look you are achieving already. I thought about joining in the lists, but I'm sort of thinking about developing a list based challenge of my own. Tentatively.

You are being very ambitious with three new programs to start. I already have enough to do so I'm passing on these. Although, the Cathy Zielske class is tempting.

Ooooh I love your plan for the 30 days of list documenting! I clicked over from your link and am really interested in those prompts, but Carrie and I are traveling to England the last 10 days of March so I'm thinking I'd better not commit to that one!

I did sign up for Liberate Your Art - followed the link from Rinda's blog too. :o)

I've decided that life is busy enough without taking on anything all sounds right up your street though, Helena!

I'm in for Liberate Your Art, too! I was wondering if any of us will end up with cards from blog friends :)
