Doesn’t get old! 😁 As they say, my get up & go got up & went. πŸ˜† Long day! But, the culmination of a week of daily joy in coloring and connecting with so many lovely You’s! 😊 #thankyou #thankful #coloringforfun

Colored Pencil Courage

Hi! It’s been many years since I’ve attempted to draw something. Not sure why, but it took courage! Recently, I started a #kitandclowder colored pencil class, Fairy Pencils. After watching Alyce’s first few lessons, I drew a branch! I’m stoked to improve my colored pencil skills, my medium of choice. But, especially excited to get comfortable again with drawing. Also, I worked a fun sky using Alyce’s techniques. Not so burnished & polished, but I like the texture, too. The scribbly bird, stamped from a Ranger Dina Wakley Little Birdies set, will be colored soon. For now, stretching, or branching out, feels good! Happy Day to You!

Warm holiday wishes

Sending warm wishes your way.

It’s been a while since my last post. The last quarter of a year has been a rough journey. I watched one very close to me fight so hard during those months to overcome illness. She is now at peace.

It was not uncommon through these months for me to be sat in her hospital room, coloring images I’d pre-stamped. There were nights, ink blending at my desk, I’d look up and realize it was 2am. While not Art Journaling, it was such an outlet for my grief. Lately, I come across pieces I don’t much recall making. I was surprised by the large stack of these emboss-resist one-layer cards. First, thanks for stopping by. β™₯️ Lastly, here are a few of the many cards made in a flurry of masking, stamping, heat embossing, ink blending, flicking (images & sentiments #heroarts):
