Wannabe Art

A place where one old woman shares her daily ups and downs and her attempts at art with strangers and friends out in Internet land.

I joined a swap on Surface Design called Woman. I had to do three cards that show what the word Woman means to me. This one was an easy one as I love to do little fat women... as a fat woman, myself, the shape and the butt came easy. Here is a close up of the butt.

Here is a close up of the hair.

Here they are in all their glory.

My inspiration came from the artist Botero, who likes and appreciates well rounded women, and paints them a lot.

Needed to be able to send these girls through the mail and not raise any eyebrows. Glued the bathing siuit cover to the inside of the plastic sleeve and off they went.

Look what you can make from cutting up old useless CDS and then covering them with UTEE. Then you drill holes and have some great beads to add to art quilts or postcards. I am having fun exploring all the things that you can do with this product and a melting pot.

Witches on Parade

Just finished three postcards for a WITCH Swap. Had lots of fun with this one...have always loved Halloween and WITCHES.

Witch Card # 2 is a fussy cut witch, which I repainted and thread painted and also added a little glitter.

Card # 3 is a "special" card for swapper Kim M. She has a quirky personality like mine and so I made her a Witch Lady of the Night. Got to use my UTEE to make her "Trick Zone" sign.
