Deer Girl & Paint Party Friday

Hi! I wanted to play along with Paint Party Friday. Have you ever joined in? If not you can grab the link here,visit the other artists and count your self in when you have something you painted to share. I decided to work a bit on my drawing this year along with my painting. So I am going to share my sketch and then how it looks painted.

You know how I love nature. So I decided to create a deer girl and nature scene. Here is the sketch.

First she had fawn spots but then when I took the first photo it just didn't look right in the photo. So I worked over her face a bit really quick. I might work on her some more, but she needed to dry. I am good for tearing wet paper. I love working with lots of layers.

Here is the little scene all painted. I used water colors to brush up and learn some new skills. Ya, not my favorite. Kudos to all you watercolorists, as I know it takes some mad skills! But one thing I love about playing like that is I added white acrylic into the sky & then I really liked how it turned out. And little details here and there with color pencil. This was created with pencils, water colors, acrylic paint, colored pencil & love.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and new year. My shop is open and slowly adding things and I hope to update it this weekend. I am busy crafting too. And of course organizing! Yep, somebody has to do it. Have a great weekend and be sure to leave me a comment so I can return the visit! I'll be so happy to see what your creating! And in case you didn't see my New Year Journal Page and post it is here. But here is a snip it.

This is a new year, with new opportunities & unexplored creativity waiting to be nurtured. Envisioning my dreams onto canvas & bringing it to reality is filling my soul; Creating from the place of my heart.~ Theresa Huse 2012

What are you focusing on creatively in 2012?

Thursdays Musings

 Hey, I thought I would just share I hope to post tomorrow with at least one drawing I have done this week. I am hoping to paint it this afternoon & take some photos to share. Today I am swooning over this!

We are planning on doing some fixing around our place. No small task. I am trying to get the Mr. on board with when we redo the floor we put in an island / table in the kitchen that can also be used for art & crafts. We would have a sink area behind it & not more creative cabinets, but that is ok. I would love this in Krissy's old room / our now guest room. Only problem is when they come to visit & stay where would they sleep?
My whole family lives 5-8hrs away. So when you visit you stay at least a few days. So a version of this would be great, we'd only need a place for three. When we have company we can venture to the other room for dining.

In the mean time I am making do & organizing from a few custom orders I had over the holidays, putting away ribbons, materials, paints.....

I have a post on today about cloth grocery bags & safety tips for using them. Also links to free patterns for your reusable bags. I also have two posts one of which has my top 10 photography tutorials & tips / one post dedicated to lens selection.  If you are green, sew or love photography & crafts I am sure you will like it so venture over at your leisure! Hope to see you tomorrow! xo

If you are on Pinterest you can follow my boards for Craft rooms or anything else if you like! Seriously trying only to go visit when I have my morning coffee. Love that site!
