My latest Zen Doodle.
My latest Zen Doodle.
Today my son turned 12 today. We had a few friends over for dinner, skateboarding, and general mayhem. A good time was had by all.
Now I have to clean up the mess. It can wait until tomorrow, can’t it?
Sleepover central at my place tonight. My oldest daughter and three of her best buds have taken over the living room. Judging by the giggles, laughter, and squeals, I’m positive that they’re having an awesome time.
When I turned the drawing around, it struck me that he looked like a gecko, or — I know! Remember Rango? Yeah, like one of the lizards from that flick.
Even though the contest is over, I think I might continue to post my doodles here. What the heck, why not?
All I need to do is snap a few photos, crop them, title them, and the post them. Piece of cake, right?
LOL – I
think know I’m crazy.
Yesterday was the final day for Tangle submissions to the Blick Tangle Art Challenge. I was going to submit this one, however, the contest completely slipped my mind. Ah, well, I know that there will be other contests. Meanwhile, enjoy the one that almost was.
September, autumn… mean apples, doesn’t it? So when I saw the nifty apple nail designs on Pinterest, I couldn’t resist.
Really, titling these things is seriously hurting my brain!
Can you guess which of my kid’s hand I traced?
Today’s entry. I have five more chances to win – lol
I bought this really cool Chinese dragon stamp from ebay. I’m not exactly sure why I’m into dragons this year, but I am.
As soon as he arrived, I ripped open the package, inked him up, and stamped his image onto my favorite paper. I colored him using Copic markers, colored pencils, gel pens, and water colors. I had such fun coloring the image.
He’s quite intricate, so I kept the background simple. Yet, he needed something more. I thought that maybe I would I try my hand at writing the word Dragon in beautiful Chinese calligraphy, but I just couldn’t pull it off. Etsy came to my rescue and I found this gem from someone who creates stamps by hand. I LOVE it! I can’t wait to dream up more ways to showcase it.
Or maybe it looks more like a wonky scroll. Ether way, this is today’s entry into the Tangle Art Challenge sponsored by Blick Art Materials. https://www.facebook.com/BlickArtMaterials?v=app_448952861833126&rest=1
When I begin drawing, I never know where I’m going, or what it might become. It just kinda happens.
