Terra from Smeared and Smudged and Kelli from Cajun Stamping Queen did a "31 Days of Halloween" project together where they both created a project each day for Halloween. (see haunted house and bouncing pumpkin in the bar on the right side for the links) They also offered a joint blog candy giveaway. Guess who won! Me!!!
Here are a couple of photos of all of the goodies (can you say early Christmas lol):

Thanks you two! Be sure and check out their blogs. They are both very creative artist.

Vintage Paper Dolls

Okay, I know this is kind of a paper craft project, but I felt it belong on this blog instead of my other one. I was going to work on an art doll, but I got distracted making these. lol

First Art Doll

When I decided to use this material from the 60's, I knew I had to make pink Go-Go boots to go with it. It's my first doll, and I had fun creating her. Funny thing how things are classified. I was informed the other day that anything over 50 years old was vintage. This would make this outfit a Vintage Outfit. I guess that makes me a Vintage Woman. lol

Artist Date: Draw a Manga

Wow! It has been a good while since I had an Artist Date. I have been busy with my papercraft art work, and haven't had the chance to play elsewhere.

Though it is not my thing, I thought it would be fun to try and draw a manga just once. My first one was too girlie girlie, and my second one was too cute. I still had fun though, exploring somewhere I hadn't been.

Drawing a Face

This February marks the 1st anniversary of my surgery on my left arm to save it after my lupus had caused paralysis in my left arm/hand. Unfortunately I am left handed. The surgery saved me from loosing anymore muscle mass, but only restored feeling in my first two fingers. I had to learn how to do many things with my right hand. I taught myself to write again using my left hand without the feeling in it, and this is my first attempt to draw with my left hand since all of this happened. I tend to bare down more since I can’t feel the pencil. All in all I am please to be able to even attempt to draw at this stage. I still need to work on my mind to muscle coordination, but I know with time it will get easier.

Soul Search

I made the collage on day 6 of Journal January, but just now used it for this piece "Soul Search". I seem to be doing this a lot lately. Maybe it is because it's January and the beginning of a new year.


This was my first art date.

Milliande Artist Date

I have committed to Milliande's Artist Date and have made an "Out To Art" doorhanger as proof.

Playing Along with Milliande

Milliande is doing a page a day in an art journal for the month of January.
You can play along as much as you want.

This is what I did for day 5. The two circles are all my doing, and the triangle is "Celtic Goddess Triangle Portrait" by Stamp Oasis. I then increased the outline of the stamp. I got carried away on the small circle, and finally decided to quit before I did any more damage.

A New Place

This is a new place for me to blog my other side of seeing things. It will contain everything else I do except my papercrafting. I have been experimenting a lot lately, and have found new friends who have shared their art work/experiences with me. This has pushed my creative boundaries and allowed me to explore new depths of artistic context. I hope you will journey with me as I explore/grow/evolve into new areas.
