Tuesday afternoon

 Made some progress on my jean jacket refashion.


 Lucy misses John so much she has burrowed into his spot on the couch.

 That means Riki gets the big bed all to himself.
Practiced my poppies in my dylusions journal. Nothing more therapeutic than pouring feelings into a journal page. Where else are they going to go?

flora tarot by mic #TimHoltzoxideinks

 The empress with lilac.







Went in with a bigger nib on the last two cards. Flowers weren't showing up enough. This project is fun and low stress! I love experimenting with the new oxide inks from Tim Holtz! Can't wait to get the next batch of colors.

Can't decide if I like the the items I made last week so started the embroidery.

The Tower flora tarot








Found my Tim Holtz craft sheet and it is true, the oxides behave really well on it. I tried glass then a grill mat before I gave in and tried the correct tool.

thunder shirts






Remember those three dollar pashminas, I cut the loop and use them for thunder shirts for the dogs. They are SICK of fireworks! Riki is trembling!

Columbine





I used the columbine flower to represent the fool in my new flora tarot deck.

This is my first attempt and hoping to get better. I can always make it again once I have some skills with that oxide ink. I do like the back.


I want to delete these photos so badly! I won't though, sometimes you have to fail like fifty times before you get something you like. I'm over the days of keeping my art in the closet.
Added the black border, now I know what I have done wrong so I will make a whole new fool tomorrow. I like the idea it just needs structure.



Redid the whole thing. I really like how this one turned out.

I used snapdragon for the Moon tarot card.
