My art cards for week 31 are based on two words I chose to represent the past couple weeks I’ve had.
For Side 1, I chose the word Enrich, which means to make rich or make richer. I used a stencil for the lettering and painted a lively background with warm colors.
For Side 2, I chose the word Experience, which means observation, participation, to find out, to discover. I used the same stencil for the lettering to tie the two sides together and painted another lively background using cool colors on this side.
I wanted to use these words for my prompts, but I couldn’t visualize images to represent what these mean to me, so I chose to work with colors and little details to complement the words and frame the cards. It was one of those experiments where I knew the feeling I want to convey versus an image I may want to illustrate, so I just went with the flow, feeling out what to try next.

Sometimes it’s near impossible to come up with an illustration for such words – but I think making the word a focus can be equally as powerful and meaningful. I really like your colour choices and doodles – sounds like you are having a fun time with these two positive words! 🙂
Are you making cards EVERY week? It’s probably fun to make something small that you can finish quickly. I started making 8 x 10 journal quiltlets . . . I’m still on my first one after more than a year! Ugh!
These are both great cards, with great words.
Terri – I am so enjoying the pictures of your cards! They are not only beautiful, but inspiring!!
Two lovely chosen words for your cards. Glad to see how you get inspired with these words. Love the blue/green toned card.
I like how you used color to express yourself. I like these a lot. I think they are some of my favorites!
you did great! i think you chose great colors and designs to go with your words. what a fun project to work on on a weekly basis!
