Aw. Smiley Thanks so much guys. I was in desperate need for inspiration and having a serious artist block and I thought, I haven't been to Craftster forever, maybe that'll get me going. And I saw this and it has made my heart all fuzzy. <3 I appreciate your feedback. Cheesy

If you love making ATCs or even just want to try I cannot recommend buying them pre-cut or making your own little 20+ stockpile. It really makes life easier. Cheesy

Oh Seriously...

Farewell My Black Balloon

Lost Her Behind The Moon

Lyrics from 'Satellite' by The Kills.


Not too long ago I bought a pack of pre-cut bristol board ATCs at some art store (Curry's I believe. I'm in Canada), and never realized how truly fabulous having them are.

Before when I'd get the itch to make them I'd have to stop and measure and cut the next one and I'd only churn out three. Today I got six of these bad guys out. It was so easy to just grab another one once the inspiration got flowing. I highly recommend them and they were cheeeeeap! I can't remember exactly but before taxes it was under two bucks.

With this set I've continued my new soft pastel and inking pen/sharpie obsession. As you can also see they're all based on songs. What can I say? Music and art go hand in hand for me. <3

Thanks for looking!

Oh wow! That's so cool! How very innovative and creative. That's such a good way to learn something like that though! I would definitely remember all the pieces and parts after making that. Then you get all the awesomeness of one of a kind art when it's all done. Very cool. Cheesy

This is a Communion gift for my niece. I was told she wants to be Selena Gomez so that's what she got.

I was getting good at not procrastinating on gift drawings and having them done a day early but this one sneaked up on me out of nowhere.

I started at 10 pm and finished at 1 am the day before. I'm pretty sure that's a new Last Minute Best for me. lol

I used 2H, B, F, and 7B pencils and of course my trusty blending stomps. Smiley

I'm actually excited for her to get this because I think she's going to be super excited. :heart:

Edit 05.16.11:

She loved it! My heart is swelling! I was told it was taken in for Show and Tell the next day. Cheesy Thank you for the feedback too, everyone! I've got the warm fuzzies guys!

Thank you so much ladies! You warm my heart. Smiley
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / + Baby's Breath + on: May 01, 2011 05:05:08 PM

There's a few places where some of the words are a little hard to read but it's a Peter Pan quote.

When the first baby laughed for the first time, it broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. - James Matthew Barrie.

I had a baby shower to attend today and I thought this was quite obviously the perfect quote about babies. Also I apparently made the background the perfect shade of green to go with the baby's room. So that was a happy accident. Cheesy

You certainly know your way around coloured pencils. They're lovely. I love all the little extra details like the veins in the eyes and the highlights. And that's small! Holy Patience! How much did your eyes hurt afterwards? lol

Those are lovely. <3 I have patience for all kinds of other things but not zentangles. I always lose my inspiration half way through. Sad

Thanks man. Cheesy

It was for my five year old nephew so who knows its fate, eh? But he was pretty thrilled with it from what I could tell. I drew him a half-assed Batman while we were colouring one day and he flipped. So that made figuring out his birthday gift awful easy. lol
