this and that…

I sketched this girl in my sketchbook (using non-dom hand) the other night while watching a movie on TV.  The next day, I decided to add some watercolor to it.  I think I liked it better before the watercolors:


I finished two spreads in Danielle‘s journal this weekend so I could send it on to Andria today.  It’s on its way right now.  Danielle’s journal is a Smash Book journal.  I’m only showing one of the spreads here.   The big bird was on the page, so, I took advantage of the fact that it was already there.


I also made ICADs for Saturday-Monday.  All of these are collage.

ICAD 15 is bits of grocery ads and other paper scraps:


ICAD 16 mostly painted papers:


ICAD 17 is a collage of various watches found in magazines:


I didn’t get to do Link Love on Friday because I was running short on time.  Diane at Crafty Pod is hosting Link Love.  She has some unique links herself.

    I can’t believe you did that sketch with your non-dom hand. I can’t even draw that good with my dominant hand. Lol.

      I find that I am more free drawing with my left hand….otherwise, sometimes, perfectionism creeps in 🙂

    Amazing work… something about the lady in your first piece reminds me a bit of my wife (maybe it’s the red hair?)! I really like the pigeon, too – beautiful work (and s/he probably not even going to ‘mess the place up’ either 😉 )!
    These are all very, very nice, Mary… I really like all of them… wonderful!
