when your Brain gets in the way

this is what happens to my brain when I
am trying to learn to draw it better, I have
pages and pages of these all different, trying
to make them right.  In my brain, I know
they look fine, they are my style, but something
in there is saying, your buildings should look
realistic, but I know its not my style.  I wish
the other side of my brain would just shut
the hell up and the listen to the rational part once in a while

The flowers dont have it.....

this is a card I made to enter into the Strathmore Card Contest
after I finished it, I realized it wasn't quite up to there standard, so instead of
submitting it, I am giving a thank you card to a friend.  I am going to enter
but it just wont be this design, and I think it will be watercolours.

ready set we have takeoff

I did this one down in Arizonia, it looks like we are ready
to take off......straight like a solider.
Well its been a few days from hell around here, we
have had the renos going on, and its like we are
camping, no water, no sinks, and I am no camper.
Today the plumbers are coming for the taps, (hubby thought
he could do it, but he is no handyman), and then
Friday the backsplash will be installed and then its over.
Pictures will follow on Monday.

tricks of the trade

Good morning, how are you all doing, well woke up today to
snow on the ground, so how do you think I am doing.....
Usually snow on the ground means it sticks around and
will here until spring. Oh well whats a girl going to do,
I am adapting, last week in 95 degree weather, and this
week snow.
Ok enough moaning about the weather, as you will
notice the faces are the same, but the back ground is
different.  I make backgrounds, slaving away in the studio,
scan them, and store them on the computer.  And when
I don't like the way a picture turns out, I go to photoshop
and switch up my backgrounds, and its like you have
a whole new picture.  That's one of my tricks of the trade,
do you have any, lets share.

girls gone middle aged

let the bells ring out I am home.  My homecoming was less than
thrilling, you know all the time you spend waiting at the
airport, and then when you finally get home, I am
not feeling so great.  My stomach is rolling around
and I am thinking I have got some kind of bug,
and then its like a mild flu bug, but it
keeps you down for about two days.  Today
I finally feel more like myself.  Anway  I had a great
time with my gal pals, we shopped and shopped,
and still I did not spend my limit, what's that
about, I must have contracted that fever early.  We also went to
to three movies, I know , I know are you middle-aged bordering on
old or what.  But honestly movies are 6.50 there for a senior
I think senior age there is 50, my age, that's my story and
I am sticking to it.  And to top it all off you buy one bag of
popcorn, you save the bag and bring it back the next time
you are at a movie, and free popcorn.
Here where I live in Canada, if you want to go out to the
movies, first you mortgage your house, and if you want
1000 million calorie laden popcorn (and who doesn't) plus the diet coke to counter balance the effect of the popcorn,
you have to sell your first born.  I would move there
just for the movie deal.  Ok enough about my cheapness,
this is us deciding what movie to go to, and before we
left we had seen  three of them, but missed the Judge

and after all that if you want to see a great song video and a sneak peek at my daughters main squeeze who just happens to sing on the video take a look at the link.

Project Runway its all about pattern.

Well this week the challenge is all about patterns, the designers have been busy in the studio, and we have seen some wild ones on the runway.  Now this designer LeeLee
likes to use color and her pattern challenge is quite the eyeopener.  I don't know
if the judges will go for this one, I for one Heidi think that the pattern is to tame  , for a good pattern  design.
Well on that note, next week I think the challenge will be all about the little black dress, you know ladies that dress you want to wear out and about.
Well how do you like the challenges so far, if you like them great, what about some of you participating, leave your link and we will go have a look.  I am back in the

project runway week 4 swimsuit challenge

Welcome to the swim suit challenge.  And it is a challenge
for the designers this week, some of the suits are not
fitting to well in the bodice, or gaping in the back, its
all about the fit in a
bathing suit, and you need a great set of not only designing skills, you need to know how to fit, and sew.  Now this suit, seems to meet all our criteria Nina, and the model even have a tan.  Love the color and the classic little skirt at the bottom, and the two toned bodice, this just might be a winner.
Stay tuned next week for the Pattern challenge
