1  Adventure Journal in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by andralynn on: July 01, 2015 03:33:35 PM
 I made this "Adventure Journal" to chronicle all the daily adventures, doodles and musings that may come up. And who better to guard these adventures than an adventurous dragon? Wink I used heavy cardboard for the front and back covers and painted and drew the artwork on heavy paper, cut it out and created a mini collage.

3  Coloring Book in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by andralynn on: April 07, 2015 03:50:11 PM
I just put together a mini coloring book (per my daughter's request Smiley ). I doodle ALL the time and she likes to color them in for me, so it makes perfects sense! Cheesy

4  The BIGGEST canvas I have ever painted! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by andralynn on: February 21, 2015 07:43:11 PM
I recently had a solo art show at a local art gallery -- which was the perfect excuse to get a giant canvas to paint on! It measures 4 feet x 4 feet, and was so big it wouldn't fit in my car (I had to call my husband to help me haul it home with his truck!). It was so much fun to paint in a large scale.

5  Magical Whales in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by andralynn on: December 11, 2014 03:26:10 PM
I don't know about you, but I am pretty sure whales are magic creatures and should rank right up there with dragons and unicorns. Smiley Here are a couple of my "whimsical surreal" whale paintings showing what I think whales are up to when we're not looking.

6  Fox Mask (piggy bank picture added) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by andralynn on: December 01, 2014 04:43:46 PM
For Christmas every year, everyone in my family draws a name from a hat and has to make that family member a homemade gift. This year, I got my dad's name, who just so happens to be a collector of piggy banks (he has over 500 of them) and I decided to  make one for him (eek!).

This is not a piggy bank -- it's a fox mask Smiley. It's is my first attempt at paper mache (I needed to practice before making the piggy bank), and I had a lot of fun making it. I used a balloon and cardboard as the form and painted it with acrylics. It's currently hanging above my art table and I plan to make a whole assembly of woodland masks to go along with it.

I already wrapped the piggy bank and it's sitting under the tree (I forgot to take photos!).



Here is the only halfway decent photo I could get of the piggy bank. Once my dad opened it, he wouldn't put it down. Smiley

7  Bird Drawings in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by andralynn on: October 31, 2014 01:54:16 PM
Sometimes, I draw birds. Wink These are a few that I have drawn recently. They're a little different than my usual style, which makes them fun and challenging. Smiley

8  Cardboard Bunnies :D in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by andralynn on: October 08, 2014 04:32:18 PM
I have so much cardboard, matboard, patterned paper and whosits and whatsits laying around just begging to be made into art -- how could I resist? These two mixed media pieces are what I've come up with so far. I have a very large painted cardboard fish that I just made too that I'm trying to figure out what to do with next. Cheesy

9  Painting on Wood in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by andralynn on: September 21, 2014 07:09:17 PM
Sometimes when I run out of canvas I find other things to paint on (because I just can't stop painting!! Cheesy ). This particular painting is on a nice heavy piece of wood. I attached a saw tooth hanger on the back so it can be hung on the wall.
