I feel like a bad wifey. I hate being sick and not doing anything (Alex’s orders) and then having to ask Alex (who’s been working late and it’s sooo not fun) to clean for me because it starts to stress me out. I can’t paint either, due to coughing and neck-aches, heck, I haven’t even… Continue reading sigh
I finished my second fairy house today. Added all the decorations, admittedly, mostly glitter. I also found a few other odds and ends to put inside – my compact mirror and some tiny animals from boxes of Red Rose tea (or whatever it’s called). I used my bottle cap to top the thread-spool-crochet-topped mushroom table… Continue reading I think I used too much glitter…
Today, I’m doing a little better. Still averse to coughing and sneezing all over my paints – not to mention making my neck-ache worse (hate colds or whatever this is). So I think, I’m going to build another fairy house with one of the tiny cardboard boxes we recently got instead. This may or may… Continue reading Playing with Cardboard Again
Yesterday, I made a fairy house with my sister-in-law. Today, though, I have a cold 🙁 So I’m sitting on the couch listening to harry potter too tired to paint. I’m trying to decide now how to mix whimsical hollow with sleek modern style for my office….And whether or not I should put a canopy… Continue reading Fairy Houses
Yesterday, I finally got some brushes – a spotter and two rounds of varying sizes. I LOVE THEM. Ran out of watercolor paper and the bookstore didn’t have what I needed in stock, so I made three ACEO’s while listening to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I made a FACE without… Continue reading Brushes and Art Cards
Over halfway through Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire, I painted on my last piece of watercolor paper. I guess I’ll need to stop by the art store sooner than I thought – in the mean time, I suppose I’ll be using the last few canvases. I am disappointed with my brushes though. They’ve… Continue reading Falling Fruit
Working on an idea from a friend today while listening to The Goblet of Fire, thought I’d share a preview. Then I stared at it and decided I hated the thumb, so I’ve since changed it and feel much better.
Taking a break from painting to Harry Potter (for now) today…because my thoughts on a topic have finally sort of slowed down enough for me to attempt coherent ness.
because…. I HAVE BLUE HAIR. I feel like I can legitimately say “I’m an artist” now. I finally stopped telling myself “no” (giving myself permission to be creative with my hair, not just canvas)- and then Alex surprised me by setting up an appointment for me. I feel free and beautiful. I haven’t… Continue reading I may be just a tad excited
Today we started Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – and I remembered an idea I had at one point, which was to make a white tree with a blue background. Which I did, and then decided color would be interesting, so I added that as the Weasely’s were finding the Port Key.
