PACKED and ready to go.

I wish I was packed and ready to go. I seem to be having to pack a lot into my days and week so look forward to a holiday in November. I drew this little picture for fun a few months ago but hadn't got around to colouring. The theme of packed was just right to put on my blog, I put the image onto watercolour paper and enjoyed experimenting. What do you think?

The CLIQUE in the band

6 here in the band
sometimes seven we stand.
music and rhythm to share
listen if you really dare.
Sunrise is our name
10 years we've been the same.
this our little clique
its enough to make you sick.
but we love our time together
forever, whenever, wherever!!

Treasure Island? Island of Bath?

Had to post two pictures. I had the first thought of the treasure island map. Had fun with this making making the paper and scanning into photo shop and then scanning my pictures in and finding some old type. But while the paper was drying from all its mashed tea and coffee staining I played with the word island and suddenly there was a pregnant lady in a bath. mmmm. No I am not pregnant. I sketched in grey lead and watercolour pencil and then finished off in photoshop after scanning in my little duck and palm tree. What do you think?
I have to say with all this fun playing I have put aside my assignments for college. I will now spend the rest of my Sunday doing them. I only have another 6 weeks left of my study and I will have completed my Diploma in Art Therapy. Yay!!!

I love my clutter. My best clutter is all the art tools, brushes, paints, pencils, crayons. I forever collect more and more and enjoy every chance I get to use all of the material. I collect photos, images, paints anything to add to by creative venture. To some its clutter, but its great clutter. I could have kept drawing and drawing. I realised that time was getting away from me. I have started to play in photoshop and colour digitally but at times it gets beyond me. I am still very amateurish in my approach. I hope to post the final piece but no chance this week. Any comments, should I change the colour approach, I think I have given myself to big a challenge this time. I now hope to get chance to look at others on IF. I never look until I have put my own up, hence I can't wait any longer, so heres my post.
