A Few Bits and Pieces of Art....

I've been doing a little bit of art. A few days ago I made one of my trashy postcards....all bits and pieces from things I would normally throw away. I like how this one turned out. Even the postcard itself was trash....there were several of them in some kind of business stuff that HB received. I just collaged right over them and didn't have to change the size or anything.



I'm a sucker for animal prints! And that scrolly pattern seemed to go with it....and the big red rose is just so luscious. I like this one!

Here's another little drawing I did a couple of nights ago....I named it "Climb Every Mountain" ....although HB thought it was Christmas trees!!



And here's a zentangle....I haven't been doing these abstract ones as much as before (except for the ones for my project) but last night was very humid and sticky (even the a/c didn't help with that) and seemed just right for zoning out. Or would that be zening out?!!



I also did a couple of pages in my art book....this first one got the edge cut off when I scanned it. It says "delicious flavors"....



And here's the other page I did....



These pages are not facing each other! I try to keep my color palette somewhat the same on facing pages....or at least similar in some way.

*********************************************

I received another award for my blog and I'll post that as soon as I decide who I'm passing it on to....it always takes me a little time to think about these things!

In case I get busy and don't make it back, have a great weekend!!!

*********************************************

Just for the record....that little weather widget is all wrong!! I just checked it and it said 74º but my thermometer on the patio (in the shade) says it is 82º!

  2. I love the whole post but the one with the rose and climb every mountain are the best I think. Thanks for sharing all of these with us! :) I just got my hair cut today, it's just to hot out. I can't take it anymore. So I went and had it chopped all off. LOLOL Easier that way anyway. Thanks for sharing with us!!!

  4. We will be lucky if we reach 60 degrees today. All the weather has been doing is raining. Very nice as we'd gotten 0.55" by noon and it just drizzles and then rains a good bit and then drizzles. Very nice for a change. One more day and I'll be lonesome for the sunshine.

  7. You've been busy! I love your zen-tangles especially, and your new term - 'zen-ing out!'
    Though a little more humid, it's been cooler here, the last couple of days - boy, the difference it makes in the temperature, if you climb over our mountains, huh? Though our version of 'cooler' is still probably warmer than a lot of other places in the world. Still, I'll take whatever I can get! Hope it cools off soon for you too.

  15. WOW, Janet, you have been busy. I love the rose card.

    Your drawings are very inspiring. I like the lines and the way you have followed the flow, yet turning and still keeping the wonderful rhythm within.

    Nice work, as always,
