M.I.A. but still being creative....

Between getting sick (a lot better now) and a lot of overtime at work... I have still been able to be creative and do AEDM (almost everyday)...

finished painting....

ATC for December trade....

As I mentioned above, I have been able to squeeze in some creativity time... I have finished painting my "fabric" and now to to cut it up, embellish it and make something out of it. I have some ideas but not sure what direction it will go. I worked on and finished my ATC cards for my group I am in... Flygirls. The theme is winter and I made snowflakes and what fun it was... 

Well it is time to go back into my room to work on some Christmas things... thanks for stopping by and looking!

AEDM day 12 and 13, where did 8,9,10 and 11 go?

Last week was a bust for me as far as making art... I was sick and of course there is my goofy daughter who broke her foot and I say goofy cuz she is 25 and was at a friends got up off the couch to go to the restroom and rolled her foot and broke it... ummm  she said that's all that happened... so on Saturday and Sunday I was able to work on a few things:

I added some color to the design.

I have been adding more details.

I belong to a group, Flygirls ATC Group and these are the lovely cards that I received...

made by Shari Ozaki

made by Deborah Velasquez

made by Teresa Cash
So as I mentioned last week was a little rough trying to work on anything. Both my girls work in elementary education one works in a special needs class (she has graduated) and the other is student teaching (graduates in December) and it is almost like when they started school...  they bring everything home and you get sick. Enough about being sick... I purchased some liquid dye this past weekend and am now using it to outline my drawing that I am painting in on fabric. I may have to purchase more but I do like the acrylic paints I am using right now. I am very excited about my ATC cards, I have never made them before but am enjoying this very much. The group of gals I am in with are very talented.

Well, time to go, getting late...  Thanks for stopping by!

AEDM Day 6

Started off this morning working on my journal, was laying out my page and received a call from my daughter that she thought she broke her foot. I met her at the urgent care and sure enough it was broken. It was rather silly how she did it but she did it. After getting her home and set up at her place I came home and got it together and put my page together. My daughter had shown me a web site where you use paint and write letters on waxed paper, when dry you peel off a letter and glue down with Modge Podge. Have many more ideas to try with that method.

Well thanks for stopping by!

AEDM 4 AND 5...

This is a comb post of day 4 and 5 of AEDM... progress on the stamp on Friday:

Started finishing the outside of the paisley.

By the time the night was over I almost had the middle done.
This morning and after a bit of housework it did this:

The stamp is finished!

The stamp has been used...

Two different mediums used...

Also took a picture....

Today I pretty much was in my room with the exception of the time it took me to vacuum my kitchen floors. I was able to finish the stamp and see what it looked liked. The first time I tried the stamp out I used acrylic paint (the red one) and the second time was with a stamp pad. I outlined one of each in black and then the other two without. I like how both turned out, each has a different look. I do enjoy carving stamps, I have a few that I have done now. I think the next time I am going to use linoleum. I have a small block have just not tried it yet. When I was cleaning the stamp off I saw a hawk taking a bath on our swimming pool cover. We actually got a mix of rain and snow last night. That water had t be freezing but he didn't care.

Well thanks for looking and stopping by!

AEDM - Day 4

Here is what I worked on last night carving a stamp....

I am thinking of entering another reader challenge that is in Cloth Paper Scissors so, I drew a design, reversed the image, transferred the design using graphite paper and now I am carving it into a stamp. I am hoping to finish this weekend and do a test stamp. I have a few other stamps that I have carved, I do enjoy the process. We will see how far I get tonight.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

November - Creative Everyday...

The beginning of November is the start of Art Everyday Month. You ask what is this? Well, Leah Piken Kolidas has a great blog and started Creative Everyday and Art Everyday Month - November (check out the site: Art Every Day Month). The goal is to be creative every single day for a month. So I started this journey a couple of years ago... so yesterday I started this piece:

I am really getting into drawing and painting on fabric... To start the creative month I fed my creative mind by checking out my fellow flyer's blogs at the hop (which I will continue today) Last night after work I started the piece above. I am going to make smaller designs on fabric along with the other piece I have been working on. Tonight after work I will work on the above.... hopefully. Now that Project Runway is over I shouldn't be to tied to the TV... oh wait there is now that new show Project Accessory. Oh well, I have a TV in my room.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
