I gave Super Sausage to my niece. She's obsessed wth her. She has decided SS is a girl named Frankie. Here she is showing her what's outside. Her superhero  catchphrase is "I'm faster than a potato!"

Averia sent me "Energy" and blue doors representing the excitement of travel and adventures. I love this flag and can't wait to hang it.

~ Completed Newt ~

Newt subject: Alchemy

My alchemy newt was to explore the elements of alchemy earth, air, water, and Fire by making an art series and by exploring lots of different art techniques.
I started this as an owl a few years ago and then suspended it and picked it up as a newt. I never thought that studying alchemy would have made my learn so many things about myself! When working on this newt I came up with lots of ideas and sketches and ultimately executed a few of those ideas into several small complete works. Here are some of my ideas:

Elemental sprites:

Elemental icons:

Sketches for some 3d ceramic work:

Here are the finished pieces I ended up with and some process pics:


Gelatin Printing with added drawing:

Mixed media watercolor:

Textile art:

As I studied the elements and processes of alchemy I realized that the "gold" you are really looking for is self awareness and awakening so the little triptych of the girl waking up is the transmutation part. If you learn to work with the elements of your life and create a life's work or magnum opus that is the true transmutation. I can't wait to continue this series and grow into larger works and flesh out some of my other ideas like the element sprites and making the rest of the ceramic vessels for each element.

Prompt: June - Kitchen Witch
Team: Clan of the Maker
Bonus Points: WIP It
Project Name: Tarot Card Bag
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I read this series that included psychics who used tarot cards. The author made a set of tarot cards to go along with the books and I bought those too. After I got them I realized they didn't come with a pouch or box or anything to contain them. I bought this fabric way back on Feb 20th and kept meaning to make the pouch. I finally did it this weekend but then I made the bottom too wide so they didn't fit very well. I had to bring the ties all the way to the top to get them to fit. I think it looks fine that way though. I tried to jazz the pic up since I am sure everyone is tired of drawstring bags.  Tongue
