ATC Mushroom #14

Mushrooms in the night... They're apparently 
phosphorescent so don't eat them.

Have a great day!

ATC Flower #24

The next few posts are done on black paper. I went on a black paper and white gel pen splurge :)

Have a great day!

ATC Doodle #13

I was messing around and doodling #391, when I thought, "I wonder what this would look like reversed." Well, I could copy the original doodle exactly, but what would the fun be in that? (Besides, I could let Photoshop do it faster and more accurately.) So I did another similar doodle in white on black.

Have a fantastic day!

ATC Flower #18

 Despite the title, one is more of a doodle than a flower...

This is the last one I did on black paper. I like the way they look, but they don't have the color versitility with the materials I have at hand. I decided to pair it with a black ink on white paper ATC for contrast. I liked the patterns in #384 without shading, so I've left it unshaded.

Have a great day!

Glass cup etching

Every now and then the glasses I get from IKEA get chipped or broken and have to be replenished. In our house people leave their cup somewhere and plan on using it again. If several are put in the same place such as the dining table or the counter, the cups get mixed up. To prevent this confusion (and cooties), whenever I get a group of glasses I etch them with my dremel. Initially I looked for etching cream, but they don't sell it here conviently (in other words, I have to make a special trip downtown into amazingly bad gridlocked traffic just to find out the art store is sold out.) The art guy said he had a glass and metal engraver, so I used that (berating myself for leaving my Dremel in Hawaii, not that it would have fit in my luggage...). Eventually I bought a Dremel here and can now happily while away hours etching everything I can get my hands on :) At any rate here is the new crop of glasses:

Have a beautiful day!

Happy Birthday to my eldest son. I hope you have the best day ever :)

More Gelly Roll in action today. I enjoyed doing these. They look more lacy than the ones done on white paper.

Have a wonderful day!

ATC Flower #16

 I was having so much fun highlighting everything (well, nearly everything...) that I bough some Canson 145 lbs A4 paper in BLACK and cut it into ATCs. Naturally I went ot town for a few days... My Sakura Gelly Roll was put to good use, then I got into my Pentel, Zebra, and Roco gel pens. The gold and silver Pentel Hybrid Gels look great on the black paper. It is interesting to see my flowers in negative space.

Have a great day!

Happy Mother's Day!

I did these a while back, around the time of our staycation. Since then, I have been having difficulty getting back into things (including blogging, obviously).

I am so glad I got several white gell pens, because I have been highlighting everything, well, nearly all my art. It is so much fun and looks neat.

Have a fabulous Mother's Day!
