cell phone holder

Looky what my husband rigged up for me! It is a cell phone holder for doing art videos! He used a cheap vent phone holder, a yardstick and a cool clamp. I did not want to pay 40 bucks for a tripod that wouldn't work for me.

I love it and him! We have been married 36 years today!

Jean jacket refashion

Added another detail to my jean jacket, my fingers are so sore! That is about six layers of denim and rick rack. Ouch.

I want to add a few climbing flowers but need a rest. I have been going through my beads and have found some cute little accents.

live oak alcohol ink

Decided to pop this one in the frame to see how it looks.
The clearer print on smooth paper is just a little too small, this watercolor paper was a little too large and I took a little TOO much off when I trimmed it! Gawd. I wasn't totally pleased with the print but hate when I mess up good art.

I'm not sure but I don't think Lucy feels good today.

Alcohol ink on the gelli plate

Spent all day yesterday working on this glue stencil for printing. I love how these look but just getting started!

Picked up a few more plants and need to get them potted.

gelli print journal

After watching a great you tube video this morning I was able to turn my least favorite print into my fav!

garden 2018

 Everyone was glad to get outside this weekend. I guess we are going straight to summer as it was over 80 degrees today.

 The bleeding heart is blooming late but really beautiful.

Mexican heather is so hardy it can handle hot dry summers.
 Decided to go with french lavender this year. Love the leaves!
 So excited to find the curly croton! I had this in my yard in Florida back in the early 90's. First time I have found it and hope to keep it alive. This pot is too big so will find something shorter. Tucked some moss rose in the succulent waterfall.

 Can you see the purple carpet on the dirt under the redbud?

lil riki

Riki is so black that you can hardly see him if he doesn't have his eyes open. Pulled up a picture to finish the sketch off.
