Many of you will know there is another One World One Heart event taking place between January 25 and February 15
I will have 2 give aways. One includes two pieces of art, an altered CD and a Gothic Arch with a polymer clay frame. The other is a brand new still packaged unmounted stamp set. I will announce my winners with the help of a random number generator on February 15 at mid day GMT. I am happy to ship world wide to anyone who has an active blog. Hope everyone visiting will have a fantastic time riding the magic carpet. Can't wait for the event to start tomorrow.
I decided that 2010 would be the year when I would learn how to draw and paint proper portraits and figures. I would like to use less and less ready images and more and more my own figures in my artwork. But of course you have to start small. I found this brilliant face drawing class by Monica Zuniga at the hands and heart Ning site http://handsandheart.ning.com/ Monica takes you really through it step by step. Here are my first efforts at drawing realistic eyes. Unfortunately the scans have come out pretty badly...
I have not been able to blog for ages, nor did I have time to create art much... work was just too busy, also I had a friend to stay. But things are slowly getting back to normal and I decided to use some of the themes on challenge blogs as art journal prompts. The theme at MMM is wings, and as I seem to be right into angels at the moment,that was easy. I also wanted to use one of the images of William Bouguereau. I got a whole Lunagirl CD full of them. I love his paintings and I know I will use them again and again. Angel and girl don't really go together in style, so I tried to tie it together with the colours I used....
My journal page today is about friendship and is dedicated to you dear friends who come and visit my blog. Your kind words and encouragement mean a lot to me. Visiting your blogs gives me daily inspiration and as I was working in my journal today I felt so grateful for all the wonderful contacts I have made in blogland. When I noticed that the theme at "The Three Muses" was Angels this week I felt really happy. All of my blogfriends are like angels to me:0)
Managed to complete another page today. I know I will not be able to keep this up when I go back to work next week, but it's great fun, while it lasts. For anyone who has not started on a journalling journey yet, I highly, highly recommend it!!!
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
