A Few Things I Did....

Honest....I'm not still on blog break! It just seems that way. HB and I are still busy clearing out, throwing out and carting things to the thrift shop. There hasn't been much art going on around here and I miss it.

I did manage to do a couple of doodle papers....

I used paint and markers and some stencils and stamps on both of these.

They will eventually get torn up and used in some collage.

And now that I know my partner has received these,
here are two ATCs I did for a swap at Tam's ning site.
The theme was umbrellas.

My partner likes teddy bears so I had to do one!


That's about all the "art" I have to show you today. Tomorrow is our marathon grocery shopping day so I doubt if I'll get much done tomorrow either. Life just keeps getting in the way of my art making time!

  7. Love your doodle papers. They are so beautiful it seems like it would be a shame to tear them up as they would look good framed on their own.

  9. I can not believe it has been so long since I left a comment, I have FINALLY stopped itching. Got a great ointment from the dermatoligist.
    Love the colors in these background papers.
    At least your area is all cleaned up and waiting on you.

  10. Gorgeous doodle pages at the beginning of your post! I cringed when you said you'd tear them up....I'd put these on my wall for display....but I know you'll make something equally beautiful with them.

  11. Beautiful doodle papers. When I end up with something like that, I always feel like framing it and hanging it on the wall..HaHa.

    We finally had a cooler morning here, so I worked in the garage bigtime.. I was disgusted at myself for all I have saved. I tossed a lot. I may even have room to get to my spray paints and stencils. You may have to remind me how to use them!

  15. Your doodling pages are gorgeous...seems a shame to tear them up for collages! I think they are works of art in themselves. And I really like the girl with her umbrella...very pretty.
