I feel like I have been gone forever. While busy preparing our other house to be rented I did manage to get some stuff done. It amazes me how much I can fit into a day when I don't have to stop for silly things like cooking, cleaning and shopping. When I am away by myself I just stay with it. I worked on the house, either packing stuff up, throwing crap away or deal with Real Estate people Ugh!! I did that for 8 hours and that was enough. then I showered and got busy with doing stuff I love.
I wanted to try and make doll faces like Susie Mc Mahon (if you don't know her you should check her out)
I have her pattern and her instructions. I have never worked with paint, always preferred water color pencils and chalk on cloth faces. These faces are made from paper clay. So here are the very first painted faces:
I used one of my Unicorn cameos for one and I water colored another...
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SharingOurMixedMediaArt/) I sent each person who signed up , two Formica sample tags and told them to make something...This is what I made from mine.
While I do have more to share, I really have to get busy. I came home so the kids could visit here and celebrate their Dads BD. They left today. Shot in the eye tomorrow. Old friends for company on Wed. until whenever and then back to long Island I go to set up contractors. It just never stops.
Wishing you all a very happy day...Hope I still have people who check on me once in a while. I know I've been away from here for a while....
