I wish I have been here often…

I hardly remember when I came here and post, (i Guess my blog will tell me if I look at my last post… taaah) Even though I want to create and share as much as I can, it seems that life just gets in the way. I enjoy creating, but when I do start a next project, something happen that I can not continue or finish. I think my creative block has been with me for a long time. I have been creating during my long absence here, but I still fell stuck somehow. I will share with you some of those works and the few things I did, also my new ones. This one is from a game I created inspired by another game I found in Pinterest, I just put my drawing ideas for the process, but the game was from someone I saw there.

Long time no see…

Hello, hello, Happy 2018 to all of you! I hope your holiday season was wonderful.

It has been a long time since I posted. Life just got to me and forgot to come and say HI. I have been doing so many creative things and I promise I will make more time to show you.

For now I want to leave you with something I played with yesterday. I want to add color, but this is what I have so far.

Organización de estampas

Me fascina crear mis propias estampas siempre y cuando sean de mi cabecita loca (rara vez hago algo que no es mío). Verás tres estampas que por obvias razones sabrás que no son míos los diseños. En fin, tengo tanto material y estampas hechas (algunas ya he perdido por mi mala organización) que he decidido acomodar lo mejor que se pueda en cajas y registrar algo de lo que tengo.

I love to create my own stamps, to put on rubber all the ideas coming from my crazy head. But this past June I made some rubber stamps from “Star Wars” for my kids birthday party. Those are the only ones that aren’t mine. He loved his theme party. (i’ll show you in another post the invitation and goody bags). Anyway, I have a lot of materials and stamps (that I have lost several because of my bad organization skills) so I decided to put them away in boxes and also save pictures of what I have.

Entre ellas he acomodado también algunas de las estampas que mis hijos han hecho.I put some of my kids stamps in the boxes.

El novio de la calaca llegó…

My new lino. La calaca has a boyfriend. She was waiting for a gentleman…

La calaca se encontraba sola, muy triste, muy sola. Su dueña decidió hacer algo por ella y le creo  una pareja. Mientras su dueña creaba, la calaca alucinaba… y soñaba …y suspiraba. Imaginaba a su galán, guapo como superman. Cortez, audaz y valiente y lo quería toda la gente. Caballero como aquellos de los años ya “viejeros”

pero, …oh sorpresa que se dio, un PIRATA resultó.

 

Have an amazing and very creative day!

cards

Cards and flowers for the school staff.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

During school season we have the “Teacher and staff appreciation week”, I imagine all schools do that too, and during that week we have themes so we could decide on what to give to them. A flower, coffee, card, something hand made etc. These cards were from last year. My kids and I made them with brown cards stock and an old spanish workbook that a friend gave me to use for collage. I have used it a LOT. I used also, water color pencils, paint markers, gelly rolls, sharpies, a coffee filter and a piece of cardboard for a little painting for the school nurse. They were simple, and we made them smile. The school nurse has it hanging on her little space at school and I enjoy seeing it every time I go by.

I hope you keep stoping by so I can show you old and new works that I have not published yet.

Have an awesome day!

Although making a “backup” goes to the heart of protecting computer data, creating a thoughtfully conceived “safety net” developed after an analysis of risks, needs and budgetary restraints, will minimize your frustrations, stress and computer “down” time.

pieces of scrap wood

I have been enjoying creating pieces on scrap wood. They are rough and I think that’s why I like them. I don’t sand them, just add gesso and color over them. Here is the final result of a painting I did on October last year. I sold it, but I never published pictures of the end result.

It was painted with gold gesso, using acrylic paint and markers and varnished at the end.

Next one, is a gift I gave to my son’s other teacher. His English teacher. She is a sweetheart and excellent teacher. The tittle is “The garden of knowledge of Miss Yanga”in English. In spanish says “El jardín de conocimientos de Miss Yanga”

Here are the pictures:

Hope to see you here again, I have a lot of things I want to show you that I have done, but have not publish.

Have a wonderful and very creative day!
