One more project while stuck inside. We bought cheap canvas shoes at Walmart awhile ago, when you could still shop, with this project in mind. We used some ideas from a Zentangle book and some from our heads. I have always doodled in the margins of notebooks so this was natural progression. We had such a good time doing them and are trying to come up with another way to use them, maybe canvas tote bags.

 The first pair is mine, showing the sides and backs. I tried not  to repeat a pattern.

The next two are Claire's and Ruthie's'  You can see that we each had our own style.

 I feel sorry for people who are not creative. There is only so much reading and watching TV that you can do without going bonkers. So what are you doing to beat the boredom?

I will be linking up with Off the Wall Friday.

After watching yesterday's so called press conference I was more than upset. It was full of misinformation, exaggerations, downright lies, and attacks on the press for asking very legitimate questions.

My fiber group is making a collage a month with a different prompt for each month. The word for March is BLOOM. I took advantage of the opportunity to make another piece of political art. It was cathartic to get some of my ire down on paper. 

The small words were printed from my computer using the Jokerman font, very appropriate with its prickly letters. I used flowers cut from a catalog for my "garden".

I am linking up with Off the Wall Friday. Go see what other artists are doing to make this dreadful time less trying.
