I have really been slacking around here recently ;P Enjoying some down time is always wonderful, and although there has still been drawing and things going on not much of it seems interesting enough to post about. There is one recent drawing that I really like though and it turned into a whole page, and had a little “story” to go with it. One of the homework assignments for Jane Davenport’s “Supplies me” class was a face and torso with a story. So this little mermaid was what I drew for my “homework” 🙂

I used prismacolor pencils and watercolors for the mermaid. And for the story page, I used watercolors and india ink in a waterbrush. It was a lot of fun to make, and I really love how it turned out 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by!!


About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!
