Her eyes are lopsided and I am certain things are crooked, but I do love her anyway! I drew her recently , rather quickly, for a monthly prompt, of flowers, and although the photo doesn't show it, her right eye is colored in green. She made me happy this week. I did something different. 

Wishing everyone a great weekend, be brave, do something different!

I thought today I would share some recent jewelry I have been working on. It seems my love of gemstones
will never change, I am always in awe of their natural , simple, and organic beauty. Their perfect imperfections always shine through, very similar to people I think, and that is the best part!
Lately I have really enjoyed trying to learn more about stones, their qualities and properties. In the necklace I made I fell in love with the stone that dangles at the bottom called selenite. It was named after Selene, Greek goddess of the moon, and is known to bring mental clarity.  It appears to have a moonlike glow. I have attached a small shard of kyanite on top of it, which promotes peaceful energy.
The earrings are made using some gorgeous labradorite briolettes.  Labradorite is a protection stone, giving you clarity of mind and protection from negative energy.

I hope you enjoyed the brief gemstone 101 lesson! There is so much to learn about stones, and it is fascinating!  
Thank you for visiting and always your thoughtful and kind words!

I recently joined in a ATC swap where the theme was  vintage children with wings!  What A fun theme, and it's been such a long time since I made some ATC's, I really had a blast!

I used a mixture of vintage text, scrapbook paper, purchased collage sheets, and rub ons.

I sent these off to a lovely lady in South Africa, and am waiting to receive mine also...very exciting coming from so far away!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my art adventures! Hope your art journey this week is magical!

This week I tried something different
I tried watercolors for the first time EVER!
        And I tried to do what I would call "LIGHT" which is something I don't usually do, I am usually, heavy, dark, and marks all over, filling up all space.

The nice thing about trying new things is that you might find you like it!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and and visit and always your kind words!

It seems that lately I feel like I am a person in this circle, going round and round, juggling many beautiful aspects of my life, but the key word there is juggling. I can't seem to find the time to get here to share with all my very supportive online friends that are dear to me and inspire me. I am trying to find the balance.

 These are two recent projects I have worked on, balancing colors, shapes, design elements and textures, like puzzles, and it feels good when it works out. You just know when it does, it just feels good.

I thank you for visiting and all being so patient with my balancing act.
Sending big hugs to all!
