Totally Tangled

How hooked am I?

But having fun
simply for the sake of creating. 

Nothing to market.

No decisions on price,

or if it is even marketable....

Simply having fun. 

How many of these do I have started?

Way more than I have finished!

Sharpie Markers and Alcohol = Really Quick Art

What a fun, creative process! 

Grab all those sharpies that are hidden in your desk drawer.
Find that bottle of rubbing alcohol.
(Vodka or hand sanitize might work, you can always experiment)
Dig out a canvas, 
or go buy some, 
nothing like having some blank canvases hanging around. 

Draw some wild and crazy lines.
Fast and not a lot of planning work best. 

Hit it all with some alcohol. 

Allow it to move and blend. 

I use a brush for the alcohol, 
You could use a spray bottle or eye dropper, 
I just want a little more control on mine. 

And re-outline with a black sharpie!  

That's it! 
Fast Art! 

I will be teaching this next Friday along with two other 
fun projects in Mayville, New York.

A Clown Free Auction

And they are rare happenings
generally manages to find clowns. 

I "won" 
this cute little card table.

And this crock, that I quit bidding on
picked up where I left off. 
I have a yellow one like it, 
have never seen this color. 

I loved this fabric, 
it resembled swiss cheese when I removed it from the 

The risk you take.

I bought a box, 
for the planter below
and there was this retro looking ash tray in it. 

Ash trays just aren't needed like they used to be! 

I have been looking for a set of these salt and pepper shakers 
for my camper. 

Anyone remember these! 

A stand  and a ladder to chalk paint. 

And my sister found some treasures also. 
The cornucopia?

I think she is going to paint it white.

All In A Boy Day




Which they eventually were,
right in the front yard,
giggling and laughing
with no trace of modesty.  

Oh, to be so free!
