Arts and cats

Today, I didn’t have time to take photos during my fine motor activity but we did a few basic models of origami. The kids did really well and I hope we have time to do more before our session ends in November. I guess you’ll have to settle for my art instead! (wink wink) Anyway, yesterday being a holiday, I had time to play a little more and did just that in my art journal. Some paint, collage, more paint… and I ended up with a lollipop flower of sorts. And today, a small mandala. Drawing is really my go-to when I don’t know what to create. It’s so simple and I don’t have to think about it much.

Since I don’t have work stuff to share, I thought I’d share a couple of photos of my babies, Pearl and Diesel. Pearl is the smallest of the two, a little over 4 years old, and really cuddly. Diesel is 12 -1/2 years old and very independent most of the time. Except when I eat a muffin, then she meows until I give her a piece or four.

I love them both, they bring me so much joy.

Doodling postcards

Another hot day. And I spent part of it at IKEA to get storage for my studio. I was able to get a turquoise Raskog, the rolling rack. They are discontinuing the color and I really wanted a second one. The first one is already full with paints, pens and other supplies. This one will be for collages elements and book making stuff.

Anyway, after a few tasks, I was too hot to take the paints out. And it’s so humid in my apartment today that they would’ve taken a while to dry. So, inspired by Alisa Burke and Hanna Andersson, I grabbed watercolor paper and my Slick Writer marker and doodled some postcards! Since the marker dries waterproof and permanent, they can easily be painted with watercolors now. Now the question is, do I paint them or do I mail them to people who can then paint them? What do you think? Here they are: City Cats, Flowers, Garden and Mandalas.

If you click on the images, you can see them a bit bigger. And, if you so choose, you can save them by right-clicking on each of them and print them for your own personal use only.

Thanks for visiting and I’ll be back on monday. Have a nice weekend!
