I have been absent for a long period. During that time I have done some work. Little ones, and my style have changed a bit. I have participates in some art shows and a few art fairs. I want to say that I have been super busy creating and doing all kind of creative activities, but that’s not the case. So far I have manage to accommodate a space where I can rarely work. Or I cook for the family or I paint. Sad for my creative side but that’s what it is. I have force myself to participate in some art fairs so that will force me to paint more and in a short period of time, that way I can continue creating and don’t let it go totally. Here is one I made to donate for an event that happened yesterday in my community. Everything about cats. The “9th Alley Cat Art Walk” Its the first time I participate. They gave us the cat shape canvas and we painted what we wanted. This is what I end up with.
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.
I hope you have a wonderful day and I’ll do my best to come an share with you.
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.
Algunas estampas son dobles. Some stamps are double.
Aquí las que hice para el cumpleaños de mi hijo. Here the ones I made for my son’s birthday.
Todas las de los borradores son estampas dobles. All of the eraser stamps are double.
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”
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.
