Undergrove [Digital Painting]

The theme for the assignment was Impossible City.

This was a new concept for me, and I like how it turned out.
Drawn in photoshop for my digital painting class at UWEC.

Furry Migration pocket page

I had a couple pictures I took at the convention I went to earlier this month, so I turned them into a pocket page scrapbook page.


Here is a close up on the picture of the staff. It's my boyfriend Zest making a confused funny face at Kellic the con director. Haha!

Kellic was being silly and laid down for the picture and kept moving!

Hope you enjoyed this page!

Midori Smashbook :: Today

was going though some old photos I had and wanted to make a few tiny layouts in my Midori Travels Journal, which has been kind of converted into a smashbook.

First I made two layouts for some pictures of my friend Collin that he gave me at his graduation back in June.


Then I found a little picture I took of my cat Moonbeam that I took back in 2015.

That's it for now, I'll be making more of these for now on I think!

Traded!

ATC: #163

I'm taking Japanese 101 this semester and the language has inspired me so much art wise lately.

For the card I made a play on “ああ そですか。”
Which means: "Is that so?" or "Oh I see".

This card is up for trade!

Thanks for looking!

Sept 12-14, 2016 Happy Planner

I Forster a two page spread in my happy planner!


The first page is my happy planner weekly page about my daily life.

The next page I used a Project Life page with some Project Life cards to decorate a bit.
I've had Japan on my brain lately, trying to decide if I should study abroad or not and how.

Until next time,

Trying Out My New Sewing Machine

So I made this bookmark to try and test out threads and stuff.

It looks aweful but that's the learning experience!

I enjoy patchwork so that's the style I went for.
