something new...

Well, I know it's been a while...but hopefully it was worth the wait...I finally have some new art to post.  I signed up for Christy Tomlinson's She Art Workshop and then promptly became really sick.  The workshop lasted 3 weeks and I missed it all.  Luckily she is leaving the videos up for 3 months so I can still catch up.  This week I watched week one videos.  I didn't go really crazy on the background as she shows for two reason.  One:  I was really conservative on the rub ons and stamps I bought, not knowing how easy they would be to use.  Two:  I was scared to over do it.  So, I have ordered some more rub ons and stamps because I love using them.  I'm still afaid to over do it, but if I do, oh well...
So this is what I created.  It is in honor of my sister, Denise.  She loved butterflies, ladybugs and the color purple.  I like it, although it doesn't feel quite "finished". 
 This is the far view...

This is the close-up view...
I have many ideas for more girls...I need to buy more canvases!!

sick

To all my blogger friends...I am still here...I am just very sick.  It started as a sinus infection that had made it's way down into my jaw, so the whole left side of my face is KILING me.  My ear hurts, my teeth hurt, my throat huts.  Now the Dr. thinks I have pnuemonia.  I can barely breathe and I am hacking up a lung.  I got some meds, so hopefully I'll start feeling better in a day or two.
