I went back to my old (closed) blog this time to find something to bring back for a second time. Elizabeth hosts this 2nd/2nd event ever month. Be sure to check her blog. I made quite a few so called "Sketchy Ladies" and really enjoyed them. Bits of paper and a pen is all it takes.
This time Jenn at the Artist's Play Room has challenged us to do a SERIES. I decided to do a series of Sketchy Ladies with quotes.
3x5 cards, pen, paper scraps. dabs of ink
Here they are individually so you can read the quote written on each one.
I don't remember where I got this list of quotes, I just found them to be amusing. Sorry the pictures have shadows, unless I can go outside in the full sun I don't seem to be able to take photo's without this happening.
I wonder if anyone dances around the Maypole these days. Back in what seems like the dark ages, I had the chance to be a Maypole dancer. I think I was in the first or second grade and attended a small country school where grades 1 through 12 were in the same building. I have very vague memories of the day and how excited I was about participating.
Good morning on this last Tuesday of the month. I hope everything is well in your world.
I'm still in the process of knitting this wrap. I think I'm about 3/4 finished. The tea I'm drinking this morning is only sitting next to the knitting for the picture. I normally keep to two very far apart as I view it as an accident waiting to happen.
On another note, I spotted this bunch of succulents while I was out walking.
Aren't thy amazing? I've never seen the bright yellow blossoms before. Anyone know the name of the plant? One of the benefits of taking a walk is spotting things you might barely notice otherwise. Time to visit Elizabeth's blog and "notice" what my friends there are doing.
I am squeaking in this Tuesday morning. Wasn't sure I'd make it. So many of our days are spent at the river this time of year and there is no internet connection there. I hate to miss a Tuesday with Elizabeth and everyone though.
I'm drinking coffee this morning but this is the tea I'll be drinking later. I sometimes like a change.
You may remember I painted a box earlier this month in preparation for making a mixed media assemblage.
Here is where I am with it. Nothing is glued down. I have many other bits and pieces to add. That is a paper napkin in the background.
This is the very early stage of the outside. The first coat of the box was yellow, then a light pink, then a wash of antique white. I plan to sand the outside giving it an aged look and hopefully some of those layers will show through.
The box is at the River House and I'm by the Bay so who knows when I will be able to work on it again. That's ok. Things will be good and dry.
Be sure to visit Elizabeth's blog. Bring a drink and show us what you have been doing.
