Back to making art cards (ACEOs) again!

Hi folks

I didn't mean to disappear for so long!  Where does the time go?!!

Here are some new ACEOs I've made:

I love drawing whimsical girls -  I recently bought some grey-toned Letraset Promakers, so I thought I'd try them out.  I sometimes like to add a a little bit of colour to brighten up the grey, so I chose a light shade of pink!

I also drew some owls with the same markers, but decided to leave out the extra colour!  Here they are:

Oh! I did draw another bird with colour!  I have a bird calender, where you change the page each day - and on this particular day there was a blue-footed booby!  It looked so cute with it's bright turquoise feet that I thought I'd have a go at drawing a whimsical one.  Here's how it turned out:

I think he looks quite cute - what do you think?!! 

I will be back soon with more whimsical art. 

Until then, enjoy your week! :)

Flickr Raffle Card

Hi friends

I am back after a short break from my blog!  It's so lovely to see the sun shine!  I love warm, sunny days - they put you in the right mood for art! :)

Here is a raffle card I made this morning for the Flickr Raffle Group, (called "Windflowers!")  I want to draw/paint more flowers - they make me feel good!

I am also in the mood to draw angels - like the angel card shown below!  I will be making more like her for my Etsy shop, and maybe to list on ebay too!

I am off to do some weeding now as the garden badly needs it (although I do quite like the "meadow" look, with it's lovely wild flowers!)

Hope you are enjoying your weekend too - I will be back soon! :)

Hello lovely people!

Hope you are having a great weekend.

Yesterday, I had a play with watercolours, and the result was this painting:

I had a little accident when my red Posca pen leaked and left a big red blob on my work - so I just added a few more red blobs to create balance!  Hopefully it is now a "happy" accident! :)

The painting is 10 x 8 inches.  I hope to do some A4 sized paintings to put in my Etsy shop soon.

I will be adding another raffle card on Flickr soon (for those who are interested!)

Well, enjoy the rest of your weekend folks - and have a fun, creative week! ;)

New Paintings!

Hi folks!

I have been hiding, because I don't like the cold weather - or the dull, rainy days!  Please let the sun shine!

I have been painting some small pieces of art, but I seem to be all over the place at the moment, and I'm not sure what to draw or paint!  After using markers for a while, I decided to get out my watercolours and gouache.  I also decided to add some college using papers and fabric.  Here is the result:

Here are the smaller pieces (on handmade paper!)

I have three new paintings in my Etsy shop, so go take a look!  Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful (sunny) week!  I hope to start some more paintings tomorrow, so please come back soon. :)

Raffle card!

Just added this card to the ATC Raffle Group at Flickr!  Hope you like her!

She is drawn with Letraset Promarkers and gel pens.

Here is something else I drew at around 6.00 am in the morning (after letting the cats out!)  I love drawing in pen and ink.  I admit this is a little creepy, but I do like a bit of dark, surreal art!  She is a ghostly figure of a girl.  My husband thinks it is a very odd piece of art - but very unique! Ha ha! What do you think? :)

More art on Etsy!

Hi everyone,

I have just added more art cards to Etsy including this big eyed girl!  I love drawing big-eyed whimsical girls, don't you?!  

I can't wait for the days to get longer, and then I can create more art.  The lighting in my house is so dull because of the low energy light bulbs.  I often pick up the wrong coloured pencil by mistake, when I'm drawing. Maybe I just need stronger glasses ha ha!  

Here's to warm, sunny Spring days! :)

Hope you all had a great Christmas and that 2013 will be a joyous year for each and every one of you!

I will be opening  my new Etsy shop within the next couple of weeks (I will add a link once it opens!).
Here are more art cards I will be selling - 3 wise, whimsical owls! The first 2 were created using Letraset Aqua markers and gel pens - and for the 3rd owl I used Derwent Inktense pencils and gel pens.

It was so lovely to see the sun shining this morning, after weeks of dull, rainy weather.  Let's hope it continues for the rest of the week! :)
