Birthday Project Day114
Trying out an idea for a Christmas card. Not too thrilled with this. I like the idea of a wreath/door. The colors are not rich enough for me though. This needs some enhancement!

A random question: do you prefer accounts which are fully dedicated to person's art or do you like a personal lifestyle touch in art related accounts? 👀

I prefer the second type. It's always so interesting to have a look behind the scenes and see the person's life outside their hobby as well. 👌🏼💕 #sashakeepsmemories

Seems like I forgot to post point yesterday. It was a very busy day, and while I did make time for a little it of #dailydrawing , there was no Instagram post.
Here is the next #witch in my #inktober collection, and she's a demonic cutie. I really struggled with this one, but once I added textures it all came together. This challenge has really taught me to push through even when I am not super sure of the result I am going to get.

Oups, on dirait que j'ai oublié de poster me #sorciere d'hier. La journée à été chargée, je me suis pris un peu de temps pour dessiner, mais je n'ai pas réussi à partager mon #inktober2018 . Voilà donc la sorcière démoniaque du jour 28.
Elle m'a donné du fil à retordre, jusqu'à l'ajout des textures je me demandais vraiment si elle valait le coup que je la finisse. Mais me challenge m'a obligée à aller jusqu'au bout, et j'en suis bien contente. Des fois un dessin semble franchement raté pendant tout le.processus, et ne s'arrange qu'au dernier moment.

#gratefulinchies #favouritescent I guess I could stretch this to be an #abstract to do with #fragrance but the reality is I’m asking myself why did I make this hard prompt?!! LOL 😂 So I’m just posting another Inchie I made. I’ll be curious to see with what anyone else comes up with - even deciding what a favourite scent is, is challenging for me today .... I think I’ll choose the one that is that smell just after rain ( one of my children will tell me it’s mud and epiphtyes or something like that) - anyway that’s today’s choice made 😀 Random fact discovered today : there is a name for this smell: Petrichor and this smell is produced by Actinobacteria creating geosmin and also mixing with plant oils.

Best introvert movie title: Home Alone. I added the book part to make it more Hygge-like. 😊 What movie titles do you think fit with your personality?

Day 27/100 This drawing is part of my 7th 100-day project: this time I’m drawing hygge for 100 days with the @procreate app. Some of my drawings are available as prints or printables in my shop, go to thehandcraftedstory.com or follow the links in my profile.

Snowflakes

Kids aren't big fans of sharing but they're so generous spreading viruses/bacteria! 😥 Mine has just been sore throat and weakness for 3 days now (wishing hard it doesn't evolve to the full blown cold), and I'm forcing myself to draw...

We have been getting new floor heaters installed this week and have had furniture that we had to move scattered all over the house including the closet ! My computer area and scanner have been piled up , unplugged and not available to use ! ( its all set back up now !) I haven’t been able to get real work and commissions done , as I have been dragging my sketchbook and paints from room to room to try and stay out of the way ! Heaters are in now , with more work to be done on the house next week ! In the meantime , what was supposed to be a tiny snowstorm has been upgraded to a nor’easter ! Not mentally prepared , but we have provisions and shovels and warm socks , scarves and mittens out of the cupboards ready to use , and my dog Cilla is reluctantly wearing a warm winter sweater ! So here is today’s sketchbook page ; more bright colors and flowers as I prepare myself that after it stops snowing , the leaves will be brown and crunchy and the beauty of autumn will be over! Winter is hard for a native Californian, but I do enjoy cozy days painting , hot cups of coffee , funny socks and many layers of quilts on the bed ! Anybody else having trouble processing the fact that winter has arrived ? #womenwhopaint #artistsofinstagram #creativelifehappylife #illustration #inmysketchbook #creativewomen #yearofcreativehabits #iamcreative #sketchbookpage #paintyourheartout #painteveryday #painttheseasons #nullspaints #makeartthatsells #carveouttimeforart

I may have been singing the Golden Girls theme song the entire time I was carving this...

I’ve been teaching a kid’s art class, and last Tuesday was the last session. I had them work on the same piece for two sessions, and we talked about how spending lots of time on one piece can make your art really special.
.
We started with botanical gelli prints and watercolor resist drawings during the first class. In the next lesson I showed them how they can embellish the leaves and background with paint markers and oil pastels to take their artwork to the next level.
.
We had such a fun time with the project that the class was over before we knew it! I didn’t get a chance to take photos of the artists with their work, but you can check out the demo pieces I created during our time together.
.
In some ways it’s too bad that the class is over, but now I’m feeling infused with enthusiasm about finishing up my online art class I’ve been working on for @skillshare!

"Hang On Sweet Angel"
Wooden hanger wings and spaghetti measure for the body.
This is an assemblage piece created for The Artists Angel Benefit being hosted by Corinne @designdriven_studio . The proceeds will benefit @bounty_and_soul . Local artists, please consider creating for a great cause and helping our community. Angel entries due December 1......

🔹 STAR PATTERN: Process video 🔹 I’m completing at my own pace all the Inktober prompts in the two ways I thought of since the beginning (lettering and patterns). It’s very cloudy in Spain these days (yep, it’s not always sunny here) so I’m trying my best to have a decent lighting. I’ll talk a little bit about the pattern tomorrow!

I’m 44 today. Age is weird. When I was little, I though 44 was SO old. Now that I’m in my 40s I don’t feel old at all. My dad recently turned 70 and even that doesn’t seem old to me, though as a kid I though his parents were ancient at 65! ••• I guess it’s perception, right? So much of what we think and feel isn’t necessarily true or right ... it’s just how we perceive it to be. ••• I find this to be true when it comes to my art. I “feel” not good enough or talented enough, but is that true? Or is it just my perception and negative self talk? I have to remind myself of this time and time again. ••• #acrylicpainting #acrylicpaint #acrylicabstracts #yearofcreativehabits #kimberlyscreativehabit #art #makingart #makingartdaily #genxartists #genxartist #artforsale #abstractart #tucsonartist #arizonaartist #artsaves #artformentalhealth #icreateartforme #bipolar #bipolarartist

MENTORSHIP OPPORTUNITY
I’m adding 10 ladies to my team that want to start learning how to run successful businesses now so we can start out strong in the new year.
.
Have you always thought you could do more with your life? Wanted to have the freedom to travel more? Spend more time with family? Be the boss of your own time?
.
I will tell you, this takes hard work, but it’s worth every second of it. To build a life you can call your own, that’s the real gift here, and as long as you keep that vision alive you’ll gain the success you work for. It’s allowed me to be home with my son, envision a day where my husband doesn’t work as much, and plan vacations I never thought I’d be going on.
.
I’m hosting a free informational group this weekend sharing what I do, how I do it, how I actually earn money, and how you can do it too! If you’re interested fill out the link in my bio, or dm me and I’ll get you added to the group. Can’t wait to welcome you to the team!
