Drawing with my eyes closed...

Melissa has a great post on her blog about drawing blindly. I do it from time to time and forgot about how much fun it is to create like this. Here is what she said.

Drawing with my eyes closed, then painting with watercolor. Hey, I draw better with my eyes closed, than open!

and yet another Moleskine page....

I have been working in my Moleskine for about a year now. I have 7 full pages to go, and then it will be complete. Here's my latest.

Rug Hooking Goodness

When I am not painting, journaling, or making ceramics, I am rug hooking. These are little stuffed pillows. Some of the houses have pieces of my original art in the little windows. I will be selling these.

Rat City Rummage Sale

I will be liquidating all of my assemblage supplies at this sale. Great stuff for shrines, mixed media, 3-d work. I have about 5 large tups of supplies that I want to sell. So stop by and say Hi, I'll give you a deal if you mention my blog. Hope to see you there!

All they need is stuffing

For some reason I just hate doing the finishing part after I have rug hooked a piece. I love the hooking part just not the finishing part.

This one with the little face in the window, is made by painting the image with acrylics on artist canvas. Then I hook around the opening. This one will be stuffed like a little pillow, with a little button added for the door knob.

This house measures about 9 inches by 4 inches wide. It has a hand made fabric button for the door knob. Well, I better quit procrastinating, off I go to stuff my rug hooked houses!

Simple stickers

I created these simple stickers on brown packaging tape. The kind you lick to stick. I used my own rubber stamped image. Cut them out for individual stickers. You can use whatever rubber stamped image you like to make these.

"Time" Illustration Friday

I never have enough time to do all the things I want. The days end, I am tired, I try to get all the things done in a day that I want/need to. But then there is always another day..... right?
