Using/Left of center bling and lots of Copic inks.
Often when coloring it is easy to lose sight of exactly how much coloring has been implemented. My favorite part is mixing colors that don't usually fit within the monochromatic chart, here on her skin I used W2Copic and again Chalk or Charcoal pencil, both are a lot of shadowing help. Thank you for visiting today and I hope you come joins us in the challenge fun!
As usual if you click on the pics it will zoom them in closer for your inspection")
I made this purse using the paper purse pattern that's literally everywhere on the net..The animal skin clay pocket was in fact the funnest (is that a word?) You never know these days how the dictionary seems to change with the more slang that gets spoken. Makins clay was used for 98% of the purses construction as the bottom feet are in fact some metal purse feet found at Joanns.
I wanted to share with you what I have been doing while I have been sick. Like most of us right now huh??? Crazy winter so far and dangerous for some! "Sending Prayers and Blessing for all of you.
Now as you know I am seriously dead sick if I am not making something. Laying on the couch makes me feel frustrated and like I have wasted good crafting time.
Early this winter Joann's had a 70% OFF of their flannel fabric line. Can you believe the pricing? Well anywho, as a girl that can not pass up a sale. I bought a TON!!! Enough to make 1 LG. child mermaid tail Blankie/Cozy and count em with me people, 4 Queen sized rag quilts!!! That is A LOT of cutting sewing and above all clipping!
Now I made 3 and all those along with the mermaid tail went out as gifts for christmas...So finally, and because if I didn't do it now, it would set wishing I would pay attention to it in some corner some where...I made mine and my hubbies. It turned out great!
We love it and here is the best part.While I set/ lay on the couch clipping ,sneezing,snuffling and all around whining about my fever, hubby set at the other end of the couch and clipped with me ")
The man is a saint!
So not all is lost and the blankie is wonderfully warm!
Today I am so excited to share with you my creation made with
and a full assortment of bobbles, gadgets and assorted bows")
I had so much fun with this! It measures around 13" high and 10 " wide.
When I was a young girl my Grandmother dressed bisque and porcelain dolls from all over the world. I might have mentioned this before. The one time I saw her make a miniature pannier (cage skirt) I was hooked! I loved the meticulous work that it took to gather all the little pieces together into a coherent wearable garment. I tried to gather this memory in my piece today.
I hope you enjoy!
I wish you luck in your art world. and do hope you enjoy the inspiration.
Cancer is a nasty bugger that truly has affected so very many and often closer than many of us think. My sister has been our most recent family survivor and I can honestly say watching her go through what she has was to say the least inspiring.
I hope you are finding your month to be Joyous and Wonderful!
Today I will feature my final and last Gecko Galz post. I have decided to remain a supporter but have committed to other obligations that will no longer allow me the time to do everything I want. So it is with a sad good bye that I must leave this amazing design team and move forward.
Thank you Lee Anne Seed for the amazing and generous opportunity and a loving farewell to my fellow design team members . I love and admire you all.
I am so excited! today I get to share my little wee dollies.
Now when they were born in the summer I was not sure what they were...
Gnome...Elf...Gelfling??? Then Hubby came in and called them Fraggles") What ever species they derive they are created with love.
They measure 2 -1/2" and 2" if you don't include that crazy fun hair ")
I truly just molded and shaped little arms,legs bodies and ears ..no rules. I used makins clay in peach and every type of torn muslin and lace to create clothing. The little wee one has on a glove finger sack.
