Anniversary Crafts and Catch-up

My parents' wedding anniversary was at the end of the week wherein I wrote my last blog post -- before my trip.

A few of my younger sisters showed me their projects --




And I made a card, too:



So, my trip was fabulous overall. I feel like I got a lot done, despite making a conscious effort to take some REAL relaxation time. I was able to finish the superhero-mermaid drawing I'd begun in early May, and started and completed another one besides!



I also consumed three and a half books, which should help me catch up on my Goodreads challenge this year. I listened to the books in the car as we drove for hours and hours. If they had been paperback, I would have gotten car sick from looking down too long while we were moving, so I'm really glad that I remembered about the little-used Overdrive app I have on my phone, where I can borrow audiobooks in MP3 format from the library. :)

Watercolor More

Another Little Person

This is still in progress, probably, awaiting daylight for adjustments.


Note, next week and following,  posts here might be very sporadic dependent on internet access as I travel.

Fanciful Floral Fish

I found instructions for a fun project on The Artful Parent. 



First we had to go for a walk to pick a big bouquet of the wonderful wildflowers that are in full bloom right now.  And while we were walking, incidentally, Evan found another tiny Monarch caterpillar.  So we brought that home, too.






Then we picked them apart...






...and glued the pieces onto these fun fish printouts.

(Sorry the photos are all sideways... I'm really annoyed that when I rotate them, then it says it can't accept the file... gah, technology.  You'll have to turn your heads, I guess...)

People for People, Watercolor

To Give

I am trying to do a couple more watercolours before I go. This is for a family member. Maybe a couple more to come - I hope. (Hmmm, I see a couple areas needing modification. Not good to rush.)

To Work Toward

New Class

I was looking at some works of the teacher in a new class I would like to be working on: Metal Embossing. So many ideas; so many things to try.

Maybe later.
For cut-out and embossed and coloured metal
