Pink Happy Birthday Cards

Here are a couple more cards I made for Operation Write Home.  Yes, they are in the pink family again (you can’t say I didn’t warn ya! ;) )  For me it was really interesting to play a bit with the color.  I like the way the mint green color makes the Happy Birthday pop!  And the different effects that resulted from using a dot or stitching design for embellishment (you may have to enlarge to see the detail.)

Graphite Chickadee

Here is a chickadee I sketched a while back.  I am not usually a bird person, but I am still kinda proud how this one turned out…2014-03-14 13.21.14A

Brightly Colored Cards for OWH

This was the beginning of my bright color/red family/pink-ish phase.  You have been warned. ;)

Here are a couple of cards I made for Operation Write Home and I believe the sketches were OWH as well.

Hello September!

So, yes, I am back.  I ended up taking August off to work on some stuff around here.  Re-learning how to drive, moving into/organizing my new studio, health, ect.  Plus DH was busy at work too, so that always changes the balance around here…

But I have got a little fun, ‘arty’ stuff done in between (Many of them are cards, nice little projects ;) ), and can’t wait to share some of it with you!  (and catch up on the back log of some of the photos I have been saving…)

So, welcome September, slightly cooler weather, and many adventures and art-filled hours…

To start off the month, a pretty in pink (if blurry, man I need practice!) Thank you card…

Green Midori

So, I made my first leather Midori.  I love the thick, textured leather.  But I made it passport size, not Field Note size.  I already have one this size I love made of denim, so I am thinking of selling this one…
