500

A quilled D, the Roman numeral for 500 made for a challenge on a Facebook group Contemporary Quilling, that I joined recently and love being a part of. We just celebrated our 500th member, so the groups is running a challenge to quill something related to a golden milestone.

We promised

On November 8 2016, my husband and half of our creative duo died and my world stopped. He was the brains and I was the hands. I don't know what to make anymore and feel sick thinking about it. This is just a distraction to get me through the day. Definitely not one of his ideas - he would have come up with something brilliant.

As macabre as it is, I am linking up to Moo Mania & More Love. Grief is the price I am paying for love. My husband loved all the Moo Mania challenges and came up with every idea.......   including this one.........     in a way...........

With a bit of effects

Cranes

This week's theme on Wicked Wednesday is Anything Goes Autumn Related. I have this pic of cranes flying somewhere warmer for the months to come.

Little Fun Инчиковый Проект - Ноябрь

Ура - ноябрь на Little Fun!

7.11.16 - Мой любимый цвет
Алёна уже слышала это от меня (но не я придумала это выражение):
Любой цвет красивый, если он чёрный. И вот миниатюрный Чёрный Квадрат Малевича.

14.11.16 - Мои привычки
Кофе по утрам....... всегда......... с 13ти лет.

21.11.16 - Моя мама
Я версия тёщи моего мужа.

28.11.16 - Моя суета (аврал, хаос и бардак)
Вообще, это уборка. Но, в основном, всё крутится вокруг туалета кота - очень много драмы связано  с этим уголком. (N.B.  кот на картинке - посторонняя модель; оригинальный скрыт в целях сохранения конфиденциальности)




Следующий месяц завершающий.

Something Scary!

Currently on display (and for sale) at the Linden Gallery Postcard Show (St Kilda in Melbourne, Australia).
Titled "The Boss", quilling on canvas (10" x 8") from an original photograph of my cat.
And if you don't think this boss is scary, take my word for it  -  the work has this title for a reason.

Had to show off!


And now for the ATC.
She's on her way!

Digital Halloween

A while back I won a prize on Wicked Wednesday  - digital stamps from Pinkydolls. So I had a go digitally colouring one in. I used the ArtSet Pro app on my iPad together with the Apple pencil. I used markers, pencils, pastel sticks and a blending stump - all totally electronic. Then printed out.
And it's ready for Wicked Wednesday Halloween Cute or Creepy weekly challenge.
