Being creative in other ways

I have to admit that I have not been making Trolls lately.  Sometimes the creative muse takes a different route.  I'm currently signed up for an on-line class with Emma Pettit, called "Freedom lies in Boldness". The above pics are from lesson two.  

She is a wonderful teacher and I like the fact that I can do this on my own time.  Being creative in a different way.  Finding a new voice!  

These are done on a heavy paper.  The bottom one is quite large 22" X 30" . Since I have posted in while I thought I would share.  I have also been embellishing Jean Jackets using FME.  There is never a dull moment or boredom at my house.

30 minute art

I've been trying to devote 30 minutes to Art each day.  I bought this vintage ledger and this is where I have been making some art.  Some of them a little longer then 30 min and I have missed a few days.  Its' hard to come up with a new idea each day.  This is just a few of them.  Go to my FB page, 30 minute art Album and you can see more.

I recently took a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico and saw something similar to this at a museum.  Thought it would be fun to try my hand at something different. So I got out a piece of loosely woven linen and started sewing on stamps.  It was a great relaxing process and this will look amazing framed.

Playing with hair

Today I finished my girls face, sewed on her Ears, which are hidden by her hair. Then I dug out my stash of hand dyed Tibetan lamb hair.  The picture doesn’t do justice. The hair is more of a dirty yellow.  Having fun watching her character emerge.

Today I added another layer to my new Troll girl. Here’s a sneak peak.

New Troll in the works

I bought this little vintage doll dress several months back and I've been itching to make a new troll.  I started this lady a couple of days ago.  I really like where she's heading.  We shall see what else she tells me.  Stay tuned!
