Tuesday Morning Sketches #762

Hello happy Tuesday Morning Sketches #762 day!!

From the first time I saw this sketch I couldn’t get the idea of painting a cute little alpaca out of my head.  I got out some floral stamps thinking I really needed to just do something a little easier but my heart just wasn’t in it. 

I must admit I’m wondering just a little what it means that this is all I could see haha.  You know like those ink blot pictures you see psychiatrists hold up for people in shows…oh this means you are feeling like an old goat and you are diverting your emotions to a cute young alpaca to deny you’re getting old. :o/

I looked up some reference photos on Unsplash and told myself ok you get one try, if it doesn’t turn out - get out the stamps.  Halfway through I was thinking oh man I wasted my time but I stuck with it and I’m pretty happy with this cute little guy.  

I’m hoping that the bunch of flowers makes up for no sentiment because I didn’t really want to cover him up.  Also don’t know who I’m giving it to and for what occasion but I know it needs to be to someone who won’t throw it away - too quick lol.

Can’t wait to see what you saw when you first laid eyes on this sketch! Just let go and PLAAY!!!  See you soon at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #761

Hello & happy  Tuesday Morning Sketches day!! 

Finally!! Instead of just one, I was able to make a few cards for Tuesday Morning Sketches #761!! It was a big help that I used these ready made sentiment panels (from Carta Bella Flora number ?).  You will see some of them that I plan on using in the future below. Even though they are cheater cards, I think that a few of these cards would make a nice little set for a gift - what do you think?

Tuesday Morning Sketches #760


Thanks for coming by fo Tuesday Morning Sketches #760.  When I cut out the happy die for last weeks card I noticed how pretty it looked on the other side so I just had to cut one out using the flowery pattern.  I really love how it turned out if I do say so myself.   This paper is soooo pretty that cards have to turn out good just by virtue of its prettiness!!  

Can’t wait to see what you make with this to create along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  I feel like I say that all the time but seeing your take on our sketches really is a highlight of the week :)

Tuesday Morning Sketches #759


It’s time already for Tuesday Morning Sketches #759.  I knew I would love playing with this sketch but I didn’t really do what I first thought I would.  This was my 4th attempt at the tulips (didn’t like the other flowers I tried) and while not 100% happy with them I was pretty done - it was either this or I would forget about painting anything for it.  

It’s just that I have so little time to paint these days so really going backwards in my skill.  My evenings are mostly just cleaning the house and following my puppies around to make sure they’re not destroying anything.  They’re getting better now that they are a year old but boxers are puppies for a VERY long time. 

Your turn for fun with this now!! I have so many more ideas for it but just so little time - darn it!! But at least I get to see what you come up with it when you create with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!
