A medley on Saturday

I've been rather bad at posting this month - ack ! So here is a medley of post in one as the chances are I will not get to post again till sometime next week.

A  whimsical little felted birdie  for Whimsical Wednesdays.  
A sweet little snowman for Sweet Saturdays - yup needle felted again.

A whimsical snowman for Sunday Sketches.  
Yup  I was a little obsessed with felting this week. It is enjoyable but sort of strange thing to sit down to do in the day and then say okay I am felting today for work as creating is a touch and go process and rather hard to equate time spent and price of the finish project.
I wonder, how do you price your work?
Well I am off to get another cup of coffee, pick up a pencil and do some real art work (which I should have started yesterday :P).  I hope you all had a great week, Thanks giving, and have a super weekend.

A Sunday sketch :)

 Yesterday when I went to the post office to send off  my first two Etsy sales - big smile - I saw and bought some Xmas cards which were inspirational. So for Sunday Sketches here are my inspired sketches.  Hope you have a great Sunday.

P.S. Here is a interesting article about infringement vs inspiration regarding copyright

p.p.s and yes JSL  ladies these will be in the dropbox soon :)  
ppps - art every day 20

Upon waking

Some time this last week I deleted a whole set of files to a now defunk website of mine and this morning when popping by my blog I discovered " Ack!!- I deleted my background!!" Well I guess it was a time for a change :) Not sure how I will like the new font. A bit difficult to read, it is okay in common letters but rather illegible with capitalized words. Two things that mess up my senses, lack of sleep and pregnancy. No not pregnant (thank the Lord) but I still shudder and smile when I remember what I bought in the throws of hormones :). Off to do some work.
p.s the reason I was up late last night - the little needle felted doll. I decided to just finish her.
p.p.s. I had to change the text in the body back. As much as I like the script in the post headers, it was near impossible to read in the side menues :)
And you know what it is Saturday and I am posting - yeah! - so it is time for Sweet Saturday. So pop by Diana's Sweet Saturday and see what everyone's cooked up  today.
PPPS.  You know it is Sunday and not Saturday .. so my head is really out of it - ahh lack of sleep :)
PPPPS - art every day 19 :)

Day 15 WIP tweet!

I would not blame you if you thought the WIP (work in progress) was cleaning my desk ( the tissue is not used! - it  holds the camera straight, and that is not a code for anything - if your eyes are that good :) - Yup I noticed all this after I took the photo.
Not an overly bad day today. The sheep did not wonder overly much where they should not be (I don't think they have reached our neighbours garden as yet),  I altered a little program and it still computed in the end (yeah) and I started to make this bird. Well that is the upside. On the down side we have to wait 2 days to a week before transport is available to move the hay to our house and I spent the morning trying to sort out some thoughts/sketches into a composit sketch for a client which I am really not happy with as I do not think it was working. I was going not to send it to the client and ex the job, but hubby said send it anyway. I am not sure if I should hope that they like it or that they don't :) Ahh life.

Penguin drags on a Sunday

I needle felted on Saturday, drew blood only 3 times and luckily did not get it on the penguin as the colour is not the best at hiding the red stuff,  and I am only getting around to putting it up on the net today, because 1. the light was not co-operating and 2. more importantly, my camera batteries were hijacked for a more important application - the toy dog that yips and walks.  So today is Day 13 of Art Every Day for a month (honestly I do some art every day, but some can't be posted - work and some I am just too la... ahem I mean the camera won't work :) ) and since it is Sunday it is time for Sophia's Sunday Sketches - yeah!
Hope you had a great day.

AEDM - day 10 - Angelscape 3

Phew I did something today. I was not sure it was getting anywhere and somehow it looks ..well not very happy or peaceful. The gold this time seemed to have turned out better in the photo than the real thing. This ACEO is with watercolours and gold watercolour pencil. Off now to look after the sheep. I would like to do at least two more angelscapes to have a nice set, but I feel the pull of the wool - I obviously have to much blood in me and need to be let out with some jabs of the needle. Hope you are having a great day.

Angelscape 2 on Wednesday

I decided to do a series of these , so I am hoping to do at least one more this week. Doing more than one of something is something of a challenge for me :)
Here is a little ACEO , it is watercolour and acrylic. I guess it is my entery for AEDM day 8 and 9 and for Wicked Wednesday's ATC challenge whose theme is Angel.


And ACEO or ATC (an art card) is any creation that is 2.5x3.5 inches.

No name angel on a Sunday

Ahh yesterday was a day of drudge all art impulses and desires where put on hold to do the other necessary things in life. However before I went to bed I did a little ACEO background and then this morning did this little angel on it.  It looks rather anatomical to me LOL .
Well so here's my day 5 and 6 of Art Every Day for a month and my Sunday Sketches entry.
Hope all are having a great day. The sun is shining here :)
And yup this is an ACEO - watercolour, and acrylic with a touch of gold pen.

Alice in wonderland - mushroom time

Today is day 4 of Art every day for a month and I decided to do this week's  Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge which is Alice in wonder land.   So if you got a moment pop these two wonderful challenges as see what every one else is up to.  The colours came out a bit more muted than I would have likes. I think  that is because I used white acrylic paint and water with the watercolour pencils.
Hope you have an artsy day.

Thursday Art - Robis

Well I signed up for Art every day for a mont i.e November. So here is my Wednesday piece -  a little needle felted dachshund. One thing I learned doing this is, it is terribly difficult to take pics of balk felt lol.
Hope all have an artsy day, and pop by Art Ever Day for a Month.

3 little robins on a winter's day

Morning all, a little last minute with this entry :) Here is my threesome of Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge.   I made a mistake starting out on the wrong type of paper - bristle board I think, and the result is a mixed media painting with pen, watercolour and acrylic and some white gel pen.
