Flower Frenzy

I've been drawing quite a bit the past few days. Quite a change from hardly any at all. I had a stack of post cards and atc's waiting to be painted so i spent the day painting. I still have a few to paint.

ATC's




Post cards or 4X6 cards that may or may not end up as post cards.








Thanks for looking.

more art

I don't normally make acrylic backgrounds and  affix the images (glue is not my friend) but I've been making a few lately. The 4"X6" cards are my favorite size to work on.

Here are a couple of 4"X6" cards I did with acrylic paint, stencils, a little bit of washi tape and the dreaded glue.



I also made a couple of ATC's to send to friends.



I think I will be getting out the acrylic paint and stencils more often. These were fun to do. Maybe glue and I can get along.
Thanks for looking.

A Little Bit of New Art

It's been a while since I posted. I have done a few things. Not a lot though. I got out of the habit of making art everyday. Shame on me. I will try to do better.

A birthday card for a friend who has a "thang" for giraffes:


 A mixed media post card using a stamp called Take your Time by Daniel Torrente from Stampotique Originals:


A trio for an ATC, Twinchie, Inchie swap with one of my stamps called 3 Daisies from Stampotique Originals:


And a doodle on an ATC just because it was there:

Another month done gone

Time is passing so fast I'm having a hard time keeping up! The hurrier time goes the behinder I get! I have done a little bit of art but I really need to have a talk with me and get motivated again.

I did this ATC for a black and white swap.


This ATC is for a lottery - collage using a postage stamp. I don't do collage much because glue and I are not friends but it was kind of fun!


This is  a pocket letter I made for my friend Claudine. The tree is one of my stamps from Stampotique Originals


Thanks for looking.

Oh my Gosh! It's August already. Time is just whizzing by.  I thought that I had done quite a bit of art but apparently it was all a dream.  I did have some new rubber stamps released at Stampotique Originals.  It's so cool seeing what the Stampotique design team comes up with.

Here are a few I didn't dream.

ATC Swaps

Last month the theme for the hand-drawn group swap was chickens.  I like birds, (and chickens are sort of birds) so why not.





This theme this month is mushrooms. I figured, how hard can that be? They're all over my yard, anywhere from dime to dinner plate size. They are cool looking.




 Yes, there HAD to be a hookah smoking caterpillar.



And really, who can draw a mushroom without adding this little guy -



And my day isn't complete without a weed or a bird so here's my latest.
