Sea Creatures.

I have been working on a few little drawings on wood based on some sea creatures like octopi, squids and eventually a few more other things but for now I just have these two little drawings to show. The Squid drawing is colored pencil on thin birch wood and is part of my bookmark series. It measures 6" x 2.25". The octopus is also colored pencil on a slice of wood and is approximately 9" x 6.25". I know I said I would not use colored pencil anymore on wood but I just like it so much more than paint. Stay tuned for more to come!

Sketchbook Doodle: Panda Express

This was just something I was doodling up in some free moments here and there. Thought I would just color it in Photoshop and add some textures to it and keep the quality of the sketch. I don't know what it means but I have been thinking about making a little panda bear plush sometime in the near future...

Signs of Life....Card Crafting Weekend!

So I know it's been awhile since my last post. I have few projects going on at once but nothing really completed! I have so many things I want to work on and so many important other things I have to work on too! Oh well, in the meantime I had sort of a 5 day mini vacation where I made these cards. The birthday card is for my mom and the hello card is for my grandma. I wish I could tell you what papers I card crafted with but all that I know is I had some random bits and pieces from Cosmo Cricket and My Mind's Eye. I also had these neat little adhesive backed chipboard stickers, one from K and Company and the other from Cosmo Cricket laying around. Once of these days I plan to make stuff with the actual papers and embellishments that I design at my job The Paper Company Studio but I haven't yet. Hey if you want to take a look check it out!

I'm still alive and kicking and hopefully there will be some more posts coming soon! Thanks for looking!!
