In this week's art-related news I have completed some cute backgrounds on canvas boards, finished several ATCs for swapping, did some sketching, and received a wonderful present from my Husband! I have some photos to share, and what I noticed is that a lot of what I've worked on this week has a Valentine's Day feel to it. And yet....I still am behind on my Valentine's day gifts. *sigh* My initial thought isn't going to work out so now I'm brainstorming about what plan B should be.
Here's my lunch time sketch from earlier this week. She's a little shy, and clearly besotted with an unknown love interest. I like her, and I think I would love to finish it on canvas with some paint.
Here are the backgrounds I've been playing around with. I am now totally lost about what to do with them, but as they are all laid out here together I love the colorful appearance. :) It looks like a confetti explosion, lol. Underneath the confetti explosion on these canvas boards are some old pieces that I hated. This is one way to give them new life. Now I just need some inspiration about what to do with them next, lol.
Here is Amore:
Today I got the bestest present for Valentine's Day. My Husband got me a sewing machine and all the accessories!!!! I want to learn to sew so bad (not to make clothes necessarily, but more to do art and mixed media stuff). I am so excited that I got the sewing machine, and I plan to start learning how to use it later today. Here's my present:
Off to go learn to sew. Have a happy Sunday everyone!
