♥ I’m Finnish ♥

This is the first time I’ve done a “nude” but I thought since she was a mermaid that it was acceptable. She’s got quiet the hair do. I named her “I’m Finnish” as a play on words and also for the fact that I’m 1/4 Finn.  I did this ATC for the challenge at EraserQueen’s site. I used an illustration board ATC that I ordered from Dick Blick. I love having them precut and ready and super sturdy, I take a few with me with a pencil and a few other artist tools that all fit into a small pouch I can toss in my purse. Waiting at the Dr’s. office is now a pleasure. It gives me time to draw and play and come up with fun little concepts in mini art form. The color scheme for this challenge was beyond my comfort zone as Olive Green is not a color I’m drawn to. I used watercolor pencils for Olive in this and like the way the water softened the color, and as it turned out it went rather nicely with the turquoise, as for the black.. black works with everything so I opted to outline little miss mermaid in black in classic illustration style. Once again ~ Happy Tuesday! It’s time for Tammy’s Toys. I’m sharing one of my favorite toys of all times today. Although I haven’t played with them lately I used to play with these Pick Up Sticks quite often. (When I had a bigger desk.) This is actually two sets as I really enjoy a challenge. =) Speaking of challenges.. I have a few on my desk that need addressing so I’m off for now to play a round of Pick Up Sticks and then clean the mess from my desk and get to cracking! See you back here tomorrow… with something very PINK!
Every day needs a pick me up!
