I had fun with this one. I first painted the background blue. Made clouds using my new gelli plate. Cut up a pix of a lady from a mag and doodled dots on her dress. Used some stencils and made messy black marks on the page. Messy art is good :-). Why don’t you make a lovely day page? Thanks again for dropping by!

I finally finished the Gemini top which took me forever!  I am glad i did this KAL with a friend.  I failed to meet the deadline though, but its ok!  The pattern was very easy to follow.  I found the neckline part a bit big so I did the single crochet at the end of my knitting.  It came out really nice.  Another beach top that i am happy with.  Go check Ravelry.com and search for Gemini under patterns.  I will knit this again and make it longer.

Summer is almost here.  This top will be fun to wear with shorts or skirt. If you are into making your own wearables this is so easy to make.  Tedious with all the st stitches but doable!  ;-)

Here’s another fun doodle! I did not bring any of my acrylic paints to Miami. I only brought with me a notebook and sharpie and doodled away. This type of doodling has a name. its called Zentangles – didnt even know such word exists. There are lots of patterns on Pinterest. Fun stuff. Hope you’ll find it enjoyable. I find it relaxing! :-)

Rainy day art journal

This took me 15 mins from start to finish. Poured out feelings about something on the pages which made me feel a lot better.

Family and Home is the topic. Join me if you would like to do a page. I only worked on it for 15 mins. Fifteen minutes is enough time for me. Anything beyond that will be a disaster as I would alter the page and gesso it over and over again :-)
