Missing Halloween a bit right now. The heat of summer has got me wanting to craft for the fall and winter. So I painted up these little 5x8 inch paintings to celebrate Halloween.

3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Teddy Cuddlestuff and the Golden Apple on: August 04, 2018 04:47:17 PM
This acrylic painting depicts my character Sir Teddy Cuddlestuff receiving a golden apple from his friend the Golden Hind. She is giving it to him to help him on his quest to save the Forest of Lost Souls from the Witch of the Woods.  I have a whole story that goes with these paintings I'm making. Hopefully they will turn into a storybook once I'm through with them all.....someday.  Grin

7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Sir Teddy Cuddlestuff: A Series on: April 23, 2017 05:13:39 PM
I have this series that I'm working on that is about a Teddy Bear named Teddy Cuddlestuff.  One day he went to sleep and the next he woke in a whole different world. Unable to return from where he came he embarks on a journey in his new home.  He makes new and magical and powerful friends. Eventually he is sent on a quest to rescue the Lost Souls in the Forest of Lost Souls.

His journey and quest represent all of us.  Everyday we wake in a world that didn't exist the day before and we are forced to adapt to the new reality that is everyday life. I want Teddy's adventures to highlight how we should approach each day with wonder, and that if a quest should arise to accept the challenge with excitement!

This first picture is a study for when Teddy Cuddlestuff first wakes in his new world. It was fun experimenting with stencils to add a new dimension to works.

One of the creatures that Teddy meets is The Golden Hind. She cares for the Golden Apple trees and offers one to Teddy when he goes on his quest into The Forest of Lost Souls
This is a character study for her. Watercolor only.

A study for the golden apple trees. (someone told me they look like lemons...I am okay with this)

Another creature that Teddy encounters is the Merelephant

To show him the way to the Forest of Lost Souls, Teddy befriends The Forest Guardian. This is a portrait of the Forest Guardian.

I'll add to this post as I have more of this series to share
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Sewing with paper? on: August 22, 2016 08:58:25 PM
I have some Pogs.

Okay. So Pogs. Those fun round pieces of cardboard that was all the rage for fame play in the '90s. I want to make a scrapbook page with them by sewing them into little vellum or plastic pockets. But I'm not sure the best way to go about this on a sewing machine.

I would welcome any advise or tips for how to sew with paper on a sewing machine. Or any ideas for making see through panels to display my Pogs on the page.

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Arkansas Razorback Baby Hats on: April 03, 2016 07:27:26 PM
My partner's cousin is having her first baby, a boy, in May.  She is a huge Arkansas Razorback Football fan and I knew she would love to dress her little boy as a little razorback hog during the coming football season.  So I made her two hats.  One for him when he's newborn (0-3month sized) and one for football season (6-9 month sized)

I found a pattern that I liked here and then just altered as I needed to.  I also added a little tail to each hat.

bonus--some little booties
