I have really lost the knack for this whole blogging lark - as in I have no idea what to actually WRITE - but here are some pretty pictures of stuff wot I have been doing recently....
First of all, over there on the left, I'm pretty proud of this one.
It's a painting of Matthew the Raven (from the Sandman comics) - he took me months as he’s a big old fella (about 5 feet tall, see blurry pic of me below for scale) – and I thought I might never get him finished. But I got there in the end – yay! - and I have proudly hung him at the top of the stairs.
Next up, a couple of circle journal pages:
This first one was for the Stay At Home CJ over on Collabor-Art – the theme was Mermaid Tales ….. you can see the whole gallery of everyone else’s entries here
And the second was for the Fabric CJ I’m a part of over at UKScrappers. The theme, as you might have guessed, was cupcakes. Very much not my usual style this one! But I enjoyed the needle felting element, it’s always fun to get stabby!!
Well, it's a long long time since I last took part in a UKScrappers swap - but the challenge "take an old decorator's paint brush, stick a face on it, and decorate it Day of the Dead sugar skull style" was just too tempting to pass up!!
So here's an in progress pic:
(the skull was sculpted from air dry clay)
And here, after many hours doodling with my trusty Posca paint pens, is the end result:
This will go in the post this week, I hope his forever owner likes him and doesn't find him too creepy!
