something new again...

i did a show a few months back where i sold my handpainted river stones, they are something that i just love creating and feels magical to create on these stones that come from mother nature so i thought i would share them here and list them in my etsy shop here if anyone would feel interested in purchasing them for a paperweight, on a windowsill with other bits of nature or on an altar if you meditate...

i've caught the midori tn bug....


i bought a midori a year ago and never really used it that much and in the meantime i bought some other tn's in pocket and personal sizes and then recently i saw the new B6 size and just decided to cut my midori down a little bit and i just love this size. so i made my own little journaling insert out of tomoe river paper. here are some of my recent journaling pages...

new painted birdhouses

i've just listed some new birdhouses in my etsy shop  painting birdhouses is one of my first creative things that i did about 18 years ago and it is fun to be back at it, i just love making them look all cottagy and covered in roses.

new sketchbook pages...

this first sketch is a pretty book i found at the library with all kinds of recipes and ideas for a simple cozy life and i did a drawing of the yummy looking cassoulet


i've lately been going through some old magazines and finding things to draw and i came across this article of the inspiration cards i sent to somerset life, which was a fun project and i was so excited to be in the magazine
 
and then one of my favorite books the painted garden and a pretty flower i think it is supposed to be a camellia but it turned out looking more like a rose.

hope to stick with sketching for awhile , i tend to start and stop projects a lot but i wish i could make the sketchbook a regular habit.

hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and maybe doing something creative...

something new...



I've been inspired by Mindy Lacefield lately and wanted to draw and paint girls, i actually first did some girl and fairy drawings years ago before i was really doing any journaling and i just feel this urge to get back to it, but the painting of them is something i've never done before and i thought i would use an antique book that i have had for awhile and do lots of practicing in there, and then i also wanted to keep a little sketchbook just for the drawings. Mindy has a lot of art classes on her website and i may decide to take one for fun.
