I'm not going to do it.
My plate is overflowing right now.
I just can't fit this in!


This is me when I was intrigued by the #21Embody painting challenge and swore up and down I absolutely, positively, on no uncertain terms was NOT going to participate.

Yet, I sort of am. I've kinda made a page each day for each prompt. 

And it's cost me. Other things have been left undone.

But inspiration is a fleeting nymph... you need to follow it when you can.

Art Marks Timed Art Journal Page

 I was doing a timed art journalling challenge last month.

'Timed' isn't exactly my thing as I like to bang around from page to page and finish them over time.

But it was certainly enjoyable nevertheless.

Have you been art journaling lately?

Tiny Stitched Tiana

Don't you just love her droll expression?

It's as if someone is making her wear a dress and she'd rather be in jeans.

Tiny Quilt: Pearl

Here's another little fabric collage. 

This one is made with one of my favorite hand-carved stamps, Pearl. 

I really enjoy stamping on fabric scraps and figuring out 
how they can best highlight the features and look of the character.

For tiny projects I tend to keep my color palette reined in -
for example here I used blue, yellow and a little red-orange
as opposed to the whole paint store.

Mini Applique Quilt: Oscar

I've been on a sewing binge, whipping up tiny quilts featuring characters from my Unrelated Loons stamp collection.

His little butt makes me laugh every. single. time.

And this is the whole gang!

Did you have any favorites?
