1  Portable Family Portrait in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by alteredmommy on: April 01, 2019 01:39:17 PM
With my new mark making discovery I thought I would make a little family portrait for my caveman to take on his long hunting/gathering journeys.  Good to remember the fire at home and warm bodies around it am I right?

Even included the furry animals that share their warmth in the cave

signed the back with fancy colour mud

a little piece of the cave wall will be comforting while roaming the prairie, with bonus ability to win at game!

2  I make marks! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by alteredmommy on: April 01, 2019 10:52:44 AM
So I was cleaning out the old firepit after roasting the evening meat last night and you know how that goes....covered in black stuff, then I touched the cave walls and well black all over them too  Tongue  Then I had a eureka moment and picked up my fire poking stick and used the black end to make marks!!!!  This is an evolutionary game changer for the weekly grocery list!!

BEFORE:  Grocery list on the ground where uncaring people (not mentioning any names but geez kids) walked all over it

AFTER: Grocery list on the wall!

I can see sooooo many applications for this amazing discovery!

I received this fantastic 6 x 6 acrylic pour from curiousfae!  Loving the gorgeous colours so much, like a really cool galaxy.  Acrylic pours are so fascinating to look at and I can't wait to hang this beauty up!  You're going to have to tell me what magic mix you used to get such good cells, I haven't tried pouring yet but have been watching lots of videos with so many different recipes.

Thanks for the awesome art partner Smiley

6  Ode to the Canadian Unicorn! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by alteredmommy on: April 01, 2018 09:34:05 AM
This long winter I was lucky enough to finally see one of the most elusive creatures in the Canadian North!  I had to commemorate this truly amazing and sparkly sight in case I don't see this magical creature again

Although the Canadian Unicorn (or moosicorn as we like to call them) doesn't exactly blend in to its surroundings, most people rarely get a glimpse of them.  Apparently their favourite foods are chocolate mini eggs and they like to hang around the giant sugar crystal mountains-so much better than a salt lick!  I did take a little artistic license in the greenery as there is no green to be seen here....I had hoped the 6 foot snow banks were some kind of yearly April joke but they were still there this morning Roll Eyes

8  Re: Abandoned Art Swap Rd 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by alteredmommy on: October 11, 2017 12:29:33 PM
I abandoned the last 2 of Abbeeroad's lovely mandelas a couple weeks ago and just realized I hadn't shared the photos Roll Eyes

In a hospital waiting room (my husband is studiously ignoring my stealthy art abandonment)

And the last went to the local library amongst the art books

This swap was a lot of fun, thanks sheepBlue for organizing and to my wonderful partner Abbeeroad Smiley
