Merry Christmas

I've been working on a few things. I made four ATC's and did a few loose pages for a journal.

I have been trying to improve my faces. Here are the latest ones. I may add more to them but . . .

I hope everyone has a very Blessed  and Happy Christmas. Stay safe and warm.

Christmas Doodads

Just a quick post to show you some of the things I made for Christmas.

Recovered composition notebook for a journal
purple satin owl

I think this stuff is called ducking

owl bookmarks
I made a 2013 calendar from some of my last years art work. I used colored pencil on card-stock.  Here are just a few pages.

Thanks for looking.

Just messin around

I haven't been doing much art lately. I got on a movie kick and watched every single Hayao Miyazaki  - Studio Ghibli movie I own, (nine of them, although there are a few more I want). But, I finally got through all of them and started being arty again.

I made two ATC's for the monthly lottery on ATCFUN. I used glitter. I never use glitter. But they were pretty dull and needed some bling don't you think?

I also did two watercolors on gessoed cardboard (an old frozen pizza box actually)! I almost always listen to music when I'm sitting at my desk being creative or not being creative as the case may be! I'm not really as scrambled as I seem with these two pictures. I just tend to put my music on shuffle all and just let it play.

Thanks for looking.

Christmas Birds

Here are a couple of pictures I did for a Raven lover. The inspiration came from some clip art.

This chickadee was made  for another bird lover. Seems like everyone I know loves birds of some sort.

Thanks for looking

Sleepless Night & Muses

 It's been a while since I've made ATC's but I couldn't sleep the other night so I spent the time making some quick ones.

I made up an Owl goodie bag for a fellow Owl Lover. I made her an 8 page Christmas booklet with Christmas tags inside. I will have to make more of them. I really like them but I need them to be BIGGER! This was a swap on the Yahoo group, ATC FUN    I didn't join the swap but I did watch the video and make the booklet. Go here for the video mini book


Muses to keep her creativity flowing. The nine daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, the Muses: Calliope, Clio, Euterpe, Thalia, Melpomene,Terpsichore,  Erato, Polyhymnia,and Urania in Owl form of course!

And of course a really grumpy owl. All my owls come out grumpy. Don't know why.  

Thanks for looking!
