Blush

2014-12-10 16.51.43w

These are test runs of mixing coloured ink with coloured pencil.  You’ll notice the blush gets softer with each face, which is progress. These are very 1870s Victorian ladies minus the top left, and middle right faces. I want to turn these into some holiday card/prints.

0.5 mm Black Ballpoint, 0.5 mm Pencil, Coloured pencils, Kuretake Brush pens.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

This is my favourite time of year!
I’m pleased that I finished this one, I haven’t been finishing much anything lately because I’ve been a little down. Seeing all the pumpkins and decorations on people’s houses though has perked me up a bit.

Have a Spooktacular Halloween! (Pardon my puns)

Kuretake Pens, Black ink, white ink, watercolours, glue, holographic gold glitter.

Day Trips (Photo Heavy)

So my old car, a 12 year old Pontiac Montana (Betty the First), was finally sent off to car heaven. She’s been replaced by a brand new Mazda 5; which luckily for me has A/C, Bluetooth, no leaks and functioning brakes. Let’s not forget to mention she doesn’t chug $120 worth of gas every month (and let’s not even mention trying to drive on the high way with old Betty).

I have aptly named my new car, Betty the Second, so naturally I had to test out her maneuvering skills, mileage and Bluetooth capabilities the second I got her.

Here are a few photos from my day trips to various places:

This was the day I got Betty the Second; we went down to Caledon (lots of dangerous curves on those roads), we checked out a place my friend loves (she communes with her water spirits on the regular) and then checked out the badlands. Betty came home with bright red dust marks all over her. This of course was after our bi-weekly trip to Costco and Petsmart.

I think this was Jack Darling park in Mississauga, but I’m not positive. My friend and I had a picnic (a flask of Heering’s Cherry Liqueur was included), it was really cold that day, or at least I found it cold, but I’m always cold so really, who knows. It was really beautiful though, we celebrated my friend’s new job with Chocolate covered Sea Salted Caramels.

That’s all for my adventures, mostly I’m trying to prove that I’m not a shut-in. We will get back to our regular content soon, once I get some proper downtime to do some drawing.

Earrings!

My last post was on September 17th. I need to get back into posting more frequently, although that’s
hard to do when your life becomes unexpectedly busy.

There have been a few birthdays this past little while, and I’ve been hesitant to post photos of my crafty projects (ones I plan to start selling), but here are a couple. I want to apologize in advance for the poor photo quality, these were taken with my phone and while I was in a rush.
