Well my boys are currently on a school break with another two weeks to go. Both of them had assignments to do and study for their exams and both trying to put it off until the following day.
It's Wednesday today which means it's the middle of the week, it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and we have a new winner and top 3 congratulations ladies.
It's the end of the month which means we're recycling at sketch from the past, Sketch #176 which was design by Arlana Patten and was featured on 17th October 2012.
I've rotated the sketch 90 degrees to fit my image in.
A brief preview of the card.
Here's my card which was made for Sketch #176 and featured on
17 October 2012.
This week we're lucky enough to be working with
Lacy Sunshine Stamps
Heather Valentin is creative , award winning, modern-day fantasy and whimsical artist who has displayed a dynamic and vibrant energy while painting professionally for over 18 years.
She began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age.
For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where color, beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and brush stroke. Her subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. She is one who is inspired in a single moment. Her dreams, moods and the the unfolding beauty of the world around her is what charts her dance for the day. She is most alive when sketching and painting, creating timeless pieces that reflect her heart and soul. Drawing breathes life into her soul- it enables her to reach out and touch lives. This gives her a place in the world one character and painting at a time.
Heather's artist portfolio has expanded to include such clients as Pepsi, Outback Steakhouse, Nabisco, Zephryhils and can now be found at Laguna Art, Third Stone Art Gallery and Sausalito Art Galleries, along with commercial and private collections across
Her latest foray is to immortalize her popular drawn characters Eleanor and Pickles in a children's book of their own.
