1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Abstract Zodiac w/Watercolors (Picture Heavy!) on: March 29, 2014 07:33:11 PM
I've been working on this series pretty steadily for just at a year now.  I am taking a break for a bit to let myself get reinspired.  Hopefully sharing the ones I have finished will help.  

I have designed all 12 of the zodiac with zentangle designs and am halfway through painting them with watercolors.  So far I have finished 6.  Three are 6x6 and three are 9x12.  (When they are all finished I will have four 9x12, four 6x6, and four 8x8.)

So in order Aquarius, Pisces, Virgo (all 9x12) and Aries, Cancer, Gemini (all 6x6)





2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Alas! Poor Yorick!!! on: March 04, 2014 05:24:50 PM
I really do love the Apple People that I have been working on for awhile now.  I did this watercolor for a Shakespeare Festival's benefit.  This is my DapperApple boy playing Hamlet.  He is holding Yorick's poor decaying apple head. Sad  Grin

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Black Rose in the Devil's Garden on: February 26, 2014 11:35:37 AM
One of my favorite things to do is go to a dollar jewelry store and harvest the awesome chunks off of sub-standard necklaces to make new and reimagined things.  This last trip I found a plain necklace with a metal rose on it and another necklace with rose beads.  Taking elements from those two and adding my own beads from my stash I made two new and amazing necklaces.  The one with the black rose made me think of one of my favorite songs called Rose in the Devil's Garden by Tiger Army.



4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Elephant Woman (adults only warning!!!) on: February 26, 2014 11:28:34 AM
Eastern God inspired and based on a dream I had where I became this. She is my first work up.  I think that she may show up again...
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Who Stole All The Cookies!!! on: February 16, 2014 12:13:52 PM
Squirt Did!!!!

I am working on some of my own characters and this is Squirt.  He is a mischievous little critter that is somewhat cat like but much more intelligent (like cats can't take over the world if they really wanted  Roll Eyes Grin) and with opposable thumbs.  Here he is getting into the cookie jar while his owner, Talonpaw (to be featured in the future), isn't keeping tabs on his little friend!

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Noah and the Technicolor Paintbrush now with BABY GIRAFFE on: February 08, 2014 08:56:10 PM
 Grin So...I've been practicing my watercolor painting skills by painting various animals in different colors to give to family and friends.  It's become an ongoing project so I probably will be adding more post with these in the future but so far I have done a snowy owl, a blue wolf, a pink elephant, a green lion, and a pink bunny.






Newest addition!!! Pink and Black Baby Giraffe
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Happy Valentine's Day Hand Warmers on: February 08, 2014 08:50:33 PM
I made these with blue/chocolate variegated, and pink yarn. I kept thinking about chocolates and valentines today and this is what it lead too....that and the arctic cold outside!  I really feel that the final product reminds me of a ribbon tied box of chocolates from my sweetheart...hope I get one from her this year!  Wink
8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Jello Painting. Cancer Art. on: August 21, 2013 07:19:04 PM
So while stuck in the hospital after having my cancer removed and in pain I started to go stir crazy for not having any art to do. I was not planning on staying when I went to the ER so I had not brought ANYTHING to do. So I made do with whatever came my way, which wasn't much. I ended up painting with my grape juice (I don't like it.) and my Jello. So with some juice and jello I painted my breakfast menu and a scrounged ballpoint pen doodled whatever I "saw".  I really like the doodles I came up with.....so this is my cancer awareness art....I plan on making more....but hopefully not with whatever lacking materials I can find in the hospital....

9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Thank You Cards on: August 21, 2013 07:11:54 PM
I was very suddenly diagnosed with colorectal cancer at the end of last month, which turned into a whirlwind of surgeries, tests and coming to terms with chemo and radiation therapies very very quickly. I haven't been able to craft much over the last few weeks since my colon resection surgery (they removed a 12inch long tumor and 16in of my colon and rectum *total*) but as I am three weeks from my surgery I am starting to feel like crafting again. One of the first things that I found myself able to do as I reclined in bed was make Thank You cards for all of the various staff of the ER, Clinics, and hospital units that I was in for several days at the beginning of the month. I gave my surgeon one today for him and his amazing staff after he implanted my chemo IV port into my upper right chest. The other cards are for the hospital unit nurses that cared for me before and after my surgery, another for the ER staff that finally found my cancer and admitted me to the hospital, one for the GI specialist who gave me my colonoscopy and gently relayed the news to my GF, and so on...I think I may need to make another set now that I think about it.

These are made with scrap paper, cardstock, and origami paper with gold ink, glitter ink, and green dot details. I really enjoyed getting my hands moving after such a shock.... Hope you like them!

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Celestial Starfall beaded necklace on: July 14, 2013 02:34:20 PM
its a terrible picture but I am so happy with how it turned out that I had to share.
I used a blue mix of seed beads and added pearly and yellow beads to give it a celestial feel. And then the stars are white resin stars that I have had so long that I don't remember how long I've had them. I beaded the necklace base and then centered and wove in each star drop. It is a 16inch necklace with a lobster clasp.
