Day 28 of 365

Well, today I'm taking a little break! I still would like to share my art with you. I made this ATC a few months ago. It was one of my exercises of making a background page and within the abstract background to find a realistic shape. She is not a pretty lady but she shows a some kind of pain on her face... maybe mad... maybe sorrows...... not sure.

Day 25 of 365

A little poem , I incorporated with the painting.

Butterfly... little butterfly...

As you were fluttering around me

you made me look up to the sky,

you whispered in my ear,

and showed me

how to spread my wings and fly....

Day 19 of 365

Today I was playing with Polymer Clay... I was inspired to make a small angel.. no pattern, all hand made. One of the beads is also hand made. I think it would make a wonderful Christmas tree ornament.

Day 18 of 365

Melted crayon technique, hand drawn with india ink, gel pen, and mixed media ATC. I like to do free drawings... this image appeared with the swirls created by the melted crayon. The proportions may not be perfect, but I like the freedom of it.

Day 2 of 365 Project

I'm learning a new technique called paper paintings. First I started painting different types of paper with different shades of color.
It's a little difficult to tear small pieces of paper, glue them on a sketch and create a painting. I had to do some touch ups with paints. This my first try, I may get better with practice.
The background is from my technique melted crayon.
