Mixing it up

I don’t know what titles to give my posts anymore. It’s actually becoming a problem for me. Does anyone have ideas, tips? Do they actually need titles? Should I just leave it blank? Argh! Help! Anyway, on to the post. I’m starting by showing you what we worked on in my fine motor skills activity today: graphic practice. We traced lines and shapes as well as numbers. Everyone did very well and was so concentrated that we barely had time to use the manipulation objects so no photo of that. Yesterday, I had no idea what I wanted to do … Continue reading Mixing it up

A bit of everything

I mentioned this month that I’m participating in a 30 day journal challenge. I think it’s the third time I’m doing it and I find it’s a good habit to develop. This time, I’ve been working in a small art journal in which I had already prepared a myriad of pages in the previous months. So I can focus on answering the prompts for the challenge. I haven’t shared any of the pages until now. This page seemed appropriate to share on my blog so this was my daily art for yesterday. Today, I made a set of ATCs (Artist … Continue reading A bit of everything

Weekend update

The past couple of days, I’ve been debating whether to keep blogging or not because I don’t get a lot of visits and certainly not a lot of comments. But then, I asked myself, why exactly do I keep a blog? While it is nice to receive likes, comments and various feedback, that isn’t the main reason for my blogging. I blog to share my passions, my creations and a little bit about my life. Arts and crafts are my main passion in life but I do have others. Music, movies, my cats, and, actually, my job are all things … Continue reading Weekend update

Arts and crafts

A very short post tonight because it’s late and I’m tired. Yesterday, I drew a mandala on a previously painted page in one of my art journals. This journal is almost full so I’m just trying to fill it up before the end of the year. There’s probably less than 10 pages to go. And today, well tonight actually, I went back to an old craft of mine: a mini wreath ornament made from a wooden curtain ring. I picked seasonal colors seeing how it is officially fall now, which is my favorite season. That’s it for today. I’ll be … Continue reading Arts and crafts

Drawings

I’ve thought about it and starting this weekend, I’ll be changing by blogging schedule as follows: Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. For the rest of the month, I’m continuing to do mostly drawings. And I’ve already decided that for October, I’ll be doing some more 3D cards as well as ATCs and postcards. It will be a “mail art” month. And I will definitely mail some out randomly. Now, today I’m showing you two very different drawings. One was done in the Complete This Drawing book. The other is a very simple and very quick continuous line drawing in my mini … Continue reading Drawings

Weekend update

My personal schedule is changing this week with some dance classes on Mondays and Fridays so I might have to rethink my blogging schedule accordingly. I’ll let you know if I do. In the meantime, here are my weekend’s creations. On Saturday, I made a greeting card for a friend of the family who just became a first-time dad. Mom had already assembled the 3D image of the dog and baby so I simply had to match papers, cut and assemble everything. On Sunday, I wasn’t feeling too well so I took it easy, watched a lot of old TV … Continue reading Weekend update

More drawings

Hey look! I’m posting early for once! I finished work much earlier today and still had energy to create way before going to bed! Also, I found my inspiration on Pinterest and just had to do my art right away, so as not to forget or lose interest. But first, here is yesterday’s mandala, drawn on a 12 x 12 cardstock but it only measures approximately 7″ in diameter. It was fun to work a little bigger but I want to try even bigger and bolder! Now, today’s creation is a little doodle from postage stamps. You can find the … Continue reading More drawings
