I was checking out some of my old artwork that I haven't looked at for years! I had purchased a book by Lee Hammond titled "How to Draw Lifelike Portraits from Photographs". She is a really great teacher and made drawing not so intimidating! I thought it would be fun to share some of these with you. If you get a chance, check out the book too.
Rafael from My Tiny Studio has created some very cute Shaker Dolls! He has one listed on Ebay and the rest on Etsy. Check them out! Sorry Rafael, I was having trouble uploading your video onto my site so I will just have to link back to your site.
Anne from Gaal Creative is celebrating her "Blogoversary" and she's awarded me along with many others with her Circle of Friends Award. Thank you so much Anne! I will nominate 5 others with the same award ASAP. Check out the link to her blog, and feast your eyes upon her beautiful creations!
Okay, so I finished my first table leg doll! It was a lot of fun and I didn't have to sew ANYTHING. Can't wait to get started on my second one. Although, we don't have a Lowe's store nearby. So, in order to get my supplies, I hauled the kids through a thunderstorm (it started after we left) 45 minutes away to the nearest store :) Oh well, it was worth it. Maybe I'll use technology this time and purchase what I need over the internet. Click here if you'd like to see her on Ebay.
I haven't painted a picture of Mary for quite a while so, I finally finished one! This one has got lots of texture! Thanks to the classes I took with Gritty Jane and Maureen White, I was able to learn lots of new techniques so a big thanks to those two! It has been listed on EBay and if you'd like to check it out, click here. Hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July Weekend. I'm planning on posting a few pics from our night soon. Take care all!
Guess what guys....she's done it again! Gritty Jane has a new doll tutorial. I just wanted to share the link with everyone. Just click on the badge below and it will link you to her tutorial's home page. I can't wait to get started!
These are 2 adorable clay frogs that my kids created in their art class at school.
Cloth and Clay Santa
Another Work in Progress
Cloth and Clay Doll
This is the very first doll I created using cloth and paper clay. Check out Gritty Jane's Workshops !
The Cotton Candy Tree
I just wanted to do something a little different than my other paintings. A conversation between my son and daughter about cotton candy inspired this painting. I think the colors are fun and the trunk is mesmerizing.
This is my Christmas angel who was sold to someone in Hawaii. 70 degree weather sounds lovely right now !
Mermaid Blowing Bubbles
Each of her little scales were decoupaged on individually.
