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

paperbag art

I did this one the other day while I was out shopping,|
I was taking a break and had just bought something
that came in a paper bag,  took my trusty black
pen out of my bag and this took 2 minutes or less
and it looks like it, I continued to draw and write
all over the bag, had to put into my journal
could not bear to throw it out.

project runway week 3 workout wear

Well Heidi this is the week I have been waiting to see.  It's very hard
for a designer to design for a curvy woman.  They tend to put them all in
older women clothes.  Curvy women no matter what age, want and
need great workout clothes, or clothes in general.  I see that the designer
Lee has tended to the bright colours and stripes, but you know Heidi, this
I am linking to another project runway great artist go check out her designs
linking to paint party friday 
Next week its all about bathing suits, see you then.

You have come along way baby....

there was a comment left yesterday, about how far I have come as an artist.  And you know she is completely right.  The other day I was looking at my first ever journal, and I even cringed at it.  But you know what I might have cringed but I put it out there, bad or good so I pat myself on my back.  I managed to find somewhat of a style along the journey, how much I like color, I think my style might lean towards illustrative.  How I like to try all different techniques, did I mention how much I like color (lol).  So I want to know do you go back and look at your art from when you first started and see how much you have grown?

A pesky bug....

I got it, that bad cold that is going around.
Last week the hubster got it, and he lost his voice, okay
I liked that part.  Now I thought I was going to dodge
the bullet, I have not had a cold I bet in 15 years.
But got up today and its bad, and least its not next
week when I would be jetting off to Phoenix, so bring
it on so I wont be down for the count in Arizona, also
got some Cold fx to take care of this bug.
