Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

I get bored easily and usually when I get bored I craft; this is the result of such occasions  Grin

This is a piece that was really hard to part with; it was made using a combination of acrylic paints, paper, puffy fabric paint, glitter, poly clay, sharpies, lots of modge podge, and spray gloss. Oh and sparkly glue, can't forget that. I hope Superhooker loves it  Smiley

I'm in love with this piece! I love the colors so much (a lot more vibrant in real life) and the image is too damn cute. I'm an overly cutesy kinda girl but this just hits the spot in all the right ways LOL Another one for SH - I really really wanted to keep it.

This is my take on dotee dolls. They were both built on small rectangles of plain wood which I painted and then glued all sorts of random stuff onto haha. It was very fun for sure.

Last thing up is this painting I did for AsphaltQueen of her doggie. I'm rather proud of how the dog turned out because I typically am very horrible at painting fine details. Let's just say I took it very slowly. But I love how it turned out. I wish there was a little less negative space but I couldn't think of anything really good to fill it up with that would compliment the picture as is without messing it up somehow.

Thank you  Smiley I like to think of myself as a great faker honestly LOL To do an honest-to-god painting I suck so badly. But I have my little tips and tricks to get around  Grin
