Charity Auction Donation
Hello everyone.........REMEMBER ME? I feel horrible about how I've been neglecting my blog and my friends' blogs :( I thought as we got older we're supposed to find more time to play but lately it seems there just aren't enough hours in the day to get it all done.
I made this mixed media piece (9 x 12) for a charity auction here next week. The theme this year is 'Kaleidoscope' so I wanted to do something colorful :) It started with watercolor paper, watercolors, acrylics, ink, graphite, antique ledger paper, napkins, regular paper, tissue paper and gel medium. Oh! and some glitter hearts and stars! Then I mounted the paper to a 9 x 12 canvas board and framed it. Whew........lots of stuff and texture too and she turned out pretty cute I think :)
I'm also working on a custom order. A large mailbox and I. AM. STRUGGLING. I already messed up the one they brought me and instead of all the work involved in stripping it and/or sanding it down I went and purchased another one. $23.98! Yeah, this art stuff is not paying well. haha
I just need to get things done, get them out and find some time to play again. I really thought I'd be able to do that after the holidays but so far, not so good. Hopefully soon!
Hope you are all doing well, and I'll try visit your blogs in the next couple of days. Again, I apologize for being absent!
p.s. I've also challenged myself to try the 365 Project! Here is my page if you'd like to see 11 days of photos so far.
