A Drawing

For my Be brave challenge today I tried to draw a face from a photograph. This is a picture of Manami, she was our Japanese exchange student back in 2005, so I affectionately call her my Japanese daughter. I know you can't really tell she is Japanese by my drawing but I am working on it. The drawing has some problems but its a first try and I am bound to get better so I am happy with it

I sat this afternoon and made Halloween cards, they were really fun. Now I need to find my envelopes and get them addressed and mailed out. I didn't do anything else artistically. I had cleaned up my studio last night and now its a mess again. I can not believe how that happens so quickly.

I want to make some of these crows from Kelli Perkins I went out and got some felt today, I also want to do some of the fancy techniques she used on beads so I got some of the clear Ultra Thick Embossing powder. It took me 2 stores to find it, Hopefully I will get to do that tomorrow.

Love the Portrait and the crows are cute!
Just wanted you to know twice how I've tried to use Suziblu's link from your blog and it is not working. I don't know if it is just me but maybe you might check it. Have a Blessed Week!

The portrait is really good Kate, you were able to capture the smile in her eyes....that is something I am grappling with...getting emotion in the eyes!
Those crows are the perfect way to use up scraps of fabric...I love the color against the black. I may have to do some as birds in general! Fun!
Curious how you do with the UTEE, I have it and the melting pot but haven't used it yet!
