13  Blast from the past.... Hand drawn baby announcements in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by kaleesi on: May 11, 2008 07:11:39 PM
For my mother's day present - my brother scanned the announcement I drew for my daughter's birth -
This was back before I ever had a computer - I would have done it so different now.....

I couldn't really decide where to post it but it is handrawn so I put it here. If it's wrong - let me know.
Thanks for looking Smiley

This is the same picture but I tried to 3Dify it so it really looked like paint - what do you think?

Okay since there is still time I decided to enter another card.
This is one I've thought about for awhile.

It's called - My life in aboriginal dots.

This is based on the aboriginal dot paintings which told a story with the dots but the meaning was usually hidden to everyone else.

I did this digitally so it's more like old world meets new. (I did one with real paint but it smeared - that's why I love digital!)

My story is each spiral represents a person and their pathway through life

The middle spiral is me - the spiral on the bottom is my husband and our spirals connect - we've been married 30 years now

the third top right is my daughter. Our spirals used to intertwine but she has graduated high school and has moved out and started college. She and her father have had a falling out (they are too much alike) and she has moved away from him but still is close to me but not intertwined. The tip top spiral is my daughter's boyfriend who she is thinking of spending her life with - they are starting to intertwine.

The dots around each of us represent some of our paths. My husband's paths are mostly straight. He works alot and does his best to take care of me and the house and his responsibilities. There are some wavy paths because he does have his creative side - he has a wonderful music talent and he also has his fun side. I have more wavy paths than him because I have a lot of creativity and I'm much more of a people person than he is. My daughter's paths are all over the place right now. She is going to school to become a nurse so that path is straight but she is trying to find out who she really is and where her place is in the world and so her most of her paths are being formed.

There is also a place where the dots form a cross because God is all our lives.

I've been wanting to do aboriginal dots since i've seen them. Some use colors - some black and white - I thought the black and white was more challenging to see if you could still see the pictures - and I thought it was ironic since life is NEVER black and white!!!

17  Macro Photo Challenge - The Scream!! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by kaleesi on: April 27, 2008 05:30:39 PM
Okay, mine will have to have points as the freakiest entry anyway.....
Looking at the happy accident - I thought about my pinhead - the sculture thingy where it takes the shape of whatevery you stick behind it. And then I thought about my daughter's favorite thing to do with it - The Scream! Well, she's working so I did the scream face - and then I took a macro picture - so.... Voila!

Freaky, right?

19  Re: ATC Centerfold - Rabbits!!! Internet Centerfold on Ronna's blog!!! Link page 7 in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by kaleesi on: March 08, 2008 07:43:02 AM
We did it!!!! Everyone that posted in here made it to the Internet centerfold - well, except appledainty - but that's because she said she was being published in the magazine as a featured artist!

Here's the link to the editor's blog - the atc quarterly link hasn't been updated yet because of technical difficulties!

And here's a sneak preview screenshot!!!!


Ronna says she is mailing the actual magazine out on Monday!

WOOHOO!!! *kaleesi does the happy dance!!!

Okay, here's my latest ATC - Digi of course
I know it's a little early for Easter - I was working on this one for the Rabbit centerfold but didn't get it done in time.
I saw this saying somewhere and loved it and had to ATC it!

What do you think? Can you tell I 3Dified the crosses?
