New Art...

Ive been busy creating... first of all.. my new Blythe inspired painting "She Wears Roses"..shes wearing the little pendant I made for Tarisota last month...
she hangs on my art room wall now...
..and then I have finally started exploring abstract painting thanks to an awesome artist and teacher,Jared Knight I did his free class "Mountain Of Mine"..and cant wait to do more..I really am enjoying the process more than I ever imagined I would....its so freeing...
I call this one "Guiding Light"..an ode to Mr Knight and the Muse song I was listening to while I painted it...
and then theres this one:
..I call this one "Haunted"... I was listening to Evanescence while i painted this one....so i guess that fits..LOL..
anyhoo..2 posts in one day....its amazing what one can accomplish when one doesnt have to go to work...LOL
More soon..Love, Debxxoo

New Hair...

The thing about my hair is...I dont have a lot of it...and it takes FOREVER to grow..so cutting it off is huge for me..but i did it..
I love it..might go shorter one side yet...but i LOVE the colour...its way brighter than it looks in the photo but..self portraits..its hard to get the lighting right..LOL
anyhoo..I look like this:
..well then...thats enough looking at me..off to have brekky...
oh, and WOOOHOOO!!! Its Saturday..and i dont have to work...for the first time in 20 years..Saturdays are no longer part of my working week..
Bout bloody time too...LOL
Hope you all have a good one!!
Oh!!! New things in my Etsy shop..as it is looking veeery unloved...but..there's more to come...
Love, Debxxoo

Day 29..chasing lightning...

Ok..so , on the list of random things about me you probably dont want to know...is the something I love to do..which is to sit or stand outside when theres lightning about ..and try and capture it on camera.. I dont know what it is about lightning..the pure power..the magic of heaven touching earth...or just its sheer beauty....but it fascinates me....
it always takes my breath away...so i got this one last night..but I am having it for todays' picture of the day....hope you like..(I have already printed it off and it will hang in the hallway....like a trophy....)LOL
More soon...Love, Debxxoo

Scrapbook Memories Masters..my entries

Well, I have had quite a few loverly people give me all kinds of fabulous support over the whole Masters' thing...but the common thing has been..what did you make??
Well, I didnt bother taking photos of them before they went..(LOL orgainsed.., yes, I know...)
So I thought Id share what I did...(I havent included the single layout I got the Honourable mention for)..
so..the Double layout..(bit ho hum..least fave thing I did)..but then I seriously do NOT like doing double layouts..blechypoo..LOL
..and then there was the layout that was not to be 12x12....so..I have a little Baboushka fetish..hehehehe
..and the doors open up...
...and then my favourite thing..the Mystery project..I did something I was passionate about...even though i knew it was probably the last thing they'd want...(.LOL..but life isn't about what other people want is it?? just sayin')..
an art journal in a box:
...and then you open it up(its like one of those fake book thingys)
..and then when you take it out....
..its a tiny art journal, hand bound and stitched..(i used 2 tiny canvas boards for the covers)
...and then..some of my favourite pages:
"Every child is an artist..the problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up" Pablo Picasso
...and this one:
"Art is a collaboration between God and the artist..and the less the artist does...the better" Gide
..and my fave fave...
"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.." Leonardo Da Vinci..
...
I have to say.. I am so happy art journalling my little heart out right now...My spare time is spent in front of my art journals....just sticking stuff down..making my mark..so freeing....
I will share some pages of my new one soon....
OH!!! and that big blank white space where my Etsy shop is??
Will have something in it soon...LOL...I made a heap of pendants..and sold them all at work before i could list them...so Im off to make more..hopefully?? Today....
Heres to a lovely lovely weekend for you..
May your days be filled with love, laughter..and doing stuff that makes you happy.
More soon, Love Debxxoo

..aaaah..lovely rain..and lovelier green....
..The divine Miss M and our little friend, Katie......
...the road home.......our house would be just about at the bottom of that rainbow....my very own little leprechaun lodge....
The view from my car each day when i shut the shed ready to head to town..its so pretty to see so much green on the mountains.....
Hope you are feeling relaxed and happy coming into the new year.......I sure as hell am...
