Hi Barbara.Yes that was my attempt at zentangle.There are no classes or teachers anywhere handy where I live.Just picked it up from a couple of books.It is a real challenge for me as I am not a detail person. Much prefer to paint in representational or an impressionist style. All of the ATC,s are a challenge....
Hi Barbara _ Just wanted to you to know that I received your "Red" ATC's today. I just love them _ wonderful work. Thanks so much . As for your question has spring arrived yet ? haha we still have about 3 feet of snow covering our yard. We would normally have green grass by this time of year but we really got hit with tons of snow this year so it will be a while. My poor little tulips may be blooming under the snow banks !! _ Elaine
Hi Barbara...you are so welcome for the dolls you received from me. I can immediately guess one of the connections how my dolls ended up in your package! I noticed your card on Estelle, and it said you lived in Peoria. My in laws used to play in the Peoria orchestra for years. My MIL has passed, and my FIL stopped ages ago (he's in his 90's) when the commute from Normal, especially in the winter was a bit too much. My husband grew up in Bloomington. Small world!
And another connection...when Estelle has adjusted to her new home, I have a feeling she will be teaching me a bit of free form sewing on the machine. I imagine her sitting on top of my machine directing me. : ) Thank you for the inspiration!
Thank you so much Barbara for the wonderful news of the arrivel of my doll. I am so very happy that you like her, she was just so special to make. Suffering from migraines the whole September, made me think and meditate a lot to keep calm and find some peace while the pain made it impossible to do anything.I found my Innerchild back, and so I found myself creating this cute doll. I hope she will help you find your Innerchild, ^_^.
Thank you so much for your friendrequest, I am honored to have you as a friend,^_^ Hugs and Love, Riya.
Hi Barbara. I'm you're swap partner. I'm going to give you my Cali address just in case you send your journal in August. I'm vacationing in Washington until August 22. My Cali address is po box 932. Solana Beach. Ca 92075. I'm almost done with your journal and will try to get it out by the end of the week.
Hi,Barbara, So happy that the cards arrived and very pleased that you like them. Bull fighting is becoming less and less popular in Spain (thank goodness) More often, these powerful beasts are happy grazing peacefully in the hills.
I think I may have gotten a little carried away with the bling on this ATC but it was just so much fun !! I'm looking forward to seeing your interpretation of this wonderful artist.
Hi Barbara, I'm so glad you like the ATC I made for you. I had to chuckle about your comment that my watercolor is "very controlled". That seems to be the way I roll and usually I think it's a curse more than anything. I would love to be able to be more free and spontaneous with my work...like yours. That collage you made for me is just wonderful and so is the ATC! You asked about the artwork on the card I sent you. It is my drawing, which I sold to starvingartistamps.com, and they, in turn, made a rubber stamp out of it. For the card, I stamped the image with permanent black ink and colored it in with watercolor pencils. The building is a little lighthouse called "Bug Light" located on the breakwater in South Portland, Maine.
Hi Barbara, glad to hear you received my beads. The pink and brown ones are made from paper mache pulp, and the fabric beads are made from denim.If you want to know how I made the papermache ones. Let me know. I am also doing the papermaking swap.Great hearing from you.
Hi Barbara, I did receive your beads over a month ago and I sent you an e-mail then, I guess you did not get that email. Anyway, thank you for the beads, I love them ! put them in my treasure box, plan to make something with them.When I do I'll send you a pic.When someone takes the time to craft something for someone you don't know, it's very special. Thank you very much. Did you get my beads? please let me know
That's very effective, Barbara. Yes, it is cooling down here and we've lit the fire a couple of times and thankfully the rain has replenished the pastures after a summer drought. You enjoy the treasures of spring and summer :) best wishes.
