Well 2008 is here. This year I have decided to take on the A-Z challenge at Its A Creative World. I think this challenge will be manageable as 26 letters means two weeks to do each challenge. My A-Z will be art techniques or materials. I am hoping that by the end of 2008 I will have learned lots of new techniques, experimented with lots of different media, gotten my hands painty and inky and sticky, and generally had fun. I've been thinking about prompts for each letter and this what I have come up with so far:
