Link Love August Mission #2: Five Topics I Find Interesting

9x12" watercolor paper, gouache

An altered mission for the month of August. A set of themes!

The goal is to get a LOT more creative bloggers involved in the link-loving campaign. If this feels very retro and fun to you, please help Diane and I spread the word about the mission. SHARE the BLOG LINK LOVE by posting links to posts at 5 blogs every Friday. For August, a different theme each week.

"We must remember that a photograph 
can hold just as much as we put into it,
and no one has ever approached 
the full possibilities of the medium." 
Ansel Adams

August 9: Share links to 5 of the topics you most love to read or write about.

 To develop this list, I went into the stuff I've saved on delicious to find some favorite topics!

  1. Insights. Artists writing about art. Like this post from Teesha Moore and this post from Lost Coast Post.
  2. Creativity. Liz of Creative Liberty is a gem at finding all sorts of neat articles about creativity.
  3. Learning. Lori writes about life + kids + learning at Project Based Homeschooling. Today's post is How to Mentor a Kid with Big {Possibly Unrealistic} Dreams. I find Lori's perspective on everything insightful and intriguing. And I don't homeschool. 
  4. Fabric. I love patterns and designs and find the idea of fabric fascinating. One of my fav posts from In Color Order is The Art of Choosing.
  5. Graphic design. What makes various designs work so well. I love The Lost Principles of Design.
