Off to Art and Soul - Virginia Beach

I depart tomorrow morning after an hour at the 'ol gym to workout.  Looking forward to a great week of new classes.  I have a mixture of mixed media and jewelry.  I am so looking forwards to seeing friends, drinking wine and laughing until we pee in our pants!  My fellow Tribes women are the best!

New Art work

Where has February gone - only a few more days left.  Well maybe more than a few, but for me it's over.  Next Wednesday I leave for Art and Soul.  I am so looking forward to seeing my other Tribe members; oh and the classes as well. 

I finished two pieces of Artwork this month. 

This piece was for Donna Downey's Canvas Create 2012 for February.  I used DAP for the textured background rather than molding paste.

This weekend I need to pack my supplies for Art & Soul, Virginia Beach.

January doings combined w/Feb

It has been a long time since I posted.  I just do not seem to find interesting things to blog about.  January was a slow month for me with getting back to work after the holidays and not really interested in art or jewelry.  But then some new online classes begun and that was the push I needed to get motivated.  I only completed one project from the online classes which is one more than I usually complete.  It was a painting from Donna Downey's Create Canvas 2012 monthly workshop.  What I like about this workshop it is only once a month and one project to create.   Here is my paining for January:
Oh by the way - I sold it!  How cool is that.  I posted it on facebook and a friend of mine saw it and wanted it.  Also in January I learned how to make a humikimo braid - so hence two necklaces was the outcome from that experience.  Here they are (not the greatest pictures).

And one last project for January:  A small handcrafted journal.  I just love the texture on it.  I used a product I purchased last fall called Kroma Chrome.  I am so in love with this product! 

That's it for January - what have you been up to?

Now on to February.

We did have a small snow fall.  I hate to admit this, but I am missing a good snowstorm for this winter, but I know winter isn't over yet.  Here are some pics from my deck on the last snow fall.

I also have been working on two projects - one is almost complete.  Here are the backgrounds:

The one on the left is almost finished - here is a peek:

Let me know what you think.  I call this Key to my Heart.
