A Made A Promise.....

to myself.....to do what I love.....
that THIS year, I would put the things on my Blog that I make that make my heart happy....
Finished my first assignment in the Willowing Life Book Class today. It was my first portrait ever and I think I'm pretty happy with how it came out....of course I don't think it looks like me but it wasn't necessarily supposed to.....

The assignment was really "Celebrating My Godess Superpowers" but I thought the "Greek" part was appropriate, LOL!

 ******EDITED******
OKAY, so I'm an idiot.....I just realized I spelled Goddess wrong......well I guess I have another thing to add to the list of things I am--A BAD SPELLER!!!!!!
Materials

Watercolor Paper
Watercolor Crayons
Gelatos
Acrylic Paint
Misc. Alphabet Stamps

  1. This is amazing, the color and expression, so detailed and so beautiful!

    I was just reading about your Baklava baking, that alone is a talent, I never realized the hours and labor involved in making it. Beautiful packaging, no wonder you get request in the summer.
