My Two Blonde Girls

This year I have been taking a class called When Frogs Sing.  I love it!  We learn something new every 3 weeks.  Lately, I have been posting more of what I have done in the class.  This last round we have been learning how to draw, shade and color folk and semi realistic faces.  Here are a couple I have done.  I call them ‘my 2 blonde girls’ (although, they are really both the same girl. 😉

London Bridge is…

…Well, not falling down.  It isn’t even on the page.  But I think everything else it… Here is my (finally) finished London spread.  Amazing how much time and effort a second dog is…

Spread 2 and #aedm2013

This is my spread for day 2 (yesterday).  The quote I pulled said “Happiness is a dog on your feet”.  I think it turned out ok.  I like all the details you notice the longer you look at it.  (and can you tell I used my new paper tape?)

Finished Recycled Book

This is my third book I started during Your Stuff… Use it! month.  For this art journal I used some craft paint on news print, and then used that to cover some packaging (I believe it was a pizza box top).  For a while I have been collecting advertisements that come in the mailbox.  They are mostly for carpet cleaning, real estate, dance classes in the area, dry-cleaning, etc.  I kept them because they come in various sizes (from post card to about a 6×12 inch) and they are a nice weight (card-stock-ish).  The draw back, is they are glossy, so might be a pain to work on when the time comes.  I bound these with my current favorite technique.  (Muse said use red and yellow sock yarn with blue and teal covers. Who am I to argue?)  That was about it for this one.  Not too complicated… Kept the cover really plain, for now, but strung some beads off the end.  If you look closely you can see shells, teal and coral glass beads, and some of my paper beads.  They make me happy to touch, and to hear clink together.  =D
