Abstract Water Colour Rose

Hi Friends,

Today I did a warm-up exercise with The Frugal Crafter. I sure do appreciate short, easy tutorials like this when I have been in an artistic slump.
Here is my rose. It is nothing special to look at, but it freed up my mind and emotions, which is the result I was really going for. From there I went on to complete an art journal layout, which I will publish on my other blog, "A Closer Walk".
 Thanks for stopping by. I do apologize for not being more active here or visiting the blogs of my friends. It is a rather stormy season of life for me right now, but all storms end sometime. I will be back blogging and visiting your blogs again.

Blessing hugs,

2 Crafty Critter Crazies - Challenge #5

Hello Friends,

It is a new month and a new challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies. This month we are sponsored by the talented Sheepski Designs. I chose this cute crow as my image. You can find it here.

I made a pop-up box card for my project this month. It folds flat for mailing.

And pops into a box for a lovely surprise. I printed out multiple images for a whole flock of crows. I made them different sizes to give the illusion of some of them being farther away. I mounted them with acetate for motion and so they could be at varying heights.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you join in the challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies. All you have to do it add a critter to your design to qualify.

2 Crafty Critter Crazies - Challenge #4

Hello Friends,

Can you believe it is July? I am hoping to get lots of outdoor water colour painting done this summer, as well as some vegetable gardening and watching my bunnies and guinea pigs play outside. What are your favourite summer activities?

It is Challenge #4 at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies and this month we are sponsored by Limited Runs. I chose this adorable kitty as my image. I resized it and made six little kittens to go with the big one. This made a lovely card for my dear friend, who has been my ministry partner for nearly 10 years in a mid-week children's program at our church. I included an original rose water colour painting with the Thank You card as a gift. Both were made back in May, but I will include a pic of the painting in case you didn't see it before.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will consider joining us at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies. You may enter any kind of art or craft so long as it includes a critter.

Hugs & smiles,
