Featured Item: Sugar Skull Guitar Wood Burning

I am so excited about the sugar skull guitar wood burning but let me start off with that you may not know that music is a big part of my life. When I was younger I had music lessons twice a week and learned how to read and write music and had the ability to play a song just by listening to it. Now I haven’t played in a long time but I am slowly bringing it back into my life. For the last few years, I’ve been going to more concerts and local shows as well as festivals. During one of those times I met a guy who paints on Guitars and I was so lucky to win one of them during Blue Ridge…

An update on the 90 Days of Creativity

I thought it would be a good idea to update on the 90-Days of Creativity since it’s gone a bit silent – and when I had the idea, I didn’t calculate in that I am actually traveling for 5 and 6 days twice – so it’s being put on hold until the end of September so that I can find my bearings again.

Item of the month: Oval Owl Pyrography

This Owl Pyrography is a beautiful scene of an owl on the windowsill. The wood-burning is on an oval wood plate measuring 9″ x 12″ and has been protected with shellac to protect the art from fading. I thought it would be cool to use the plate to set in the owl on the window sill and yeah I am not disappointed in the outcome. There’s something very mystical about an owl – we have one in our backyard but the only reason I know this is because we can hear the owl. We have yet to get a glimpse of it. Owl Pyrography 9″ x 12″ Oval Plate Protected with Shellac Comes ready to hang Working around the lip of this oval plate was…

Coloring Pages in Progress

Coloring Pages in Progress

There has indeed been progress for my new coloring book – Spirit Animal Mandala’s that I am hoping to be releasing at the end of the month. It’s going to have 33 pages all together of different animals and a connecting mandala for you to actively meditate on while you color them. As I was working on them my partner got all excited about the eagle one and wanted a version that he could paint on canvas – which of course got me inspired to figure out how to get them to you on canvas for you to color or paint them yourself. So I am actively on a search for print on demand company or something like it. Of course this inspired me to…

Who knew I’d use a compass again

Who knew I’d use a compass again

As someone who wasn’t too keen on math during my high school years, I never thought I would use a compass again but here I am working on another coloring book inspiration doing just that. The inspiration came to me as I was creating the skull mandala you see below and really that’s usually how I find new ideas and projects. I think we often get caught up staring into space and wonder “what’s next” instead of doing things and allowing them to just flow. As I was creating said skull mandala I had the idea of using spirit animals as a guide and then create a mandala around them – making the animal the focus. I don’t talk about my spirituality very often as…

WELCOME TO THE NOVEMBER ART CHALLENGE!!!

For the November Art Challenge I wanted to challenge you all to choose a different way to finish a page in the ways I have outlined in Coloring Lounge!! I think we can find ourselves in a rut sometimes and get bored with using the same process over and over again. So I am launching this art challenge to expand our creativity. I have listed quite a few ways on different coloring ideas inside the Coloring Lounge where you will get access to the page as well. I can’t wait and see what you will use for your coloring page and what you will create with the November Art Challenge. We are going to have a few guidelines (rebels don’t like rules but we can…

Holiday Season is creeping in

Holiday Season is creeping in

Holiday Season is creeping in as we are just coming up on Halloween but as I like to think a head a bit and it’s good marketing or something, creating holiday gifts is already happening in my world. Before I go into more details I wanted to share that these three fellas are ready for a good home. You’ll have to email me however to claim one of them! But while you’re decided to adopt one of those guys I’ve already started with Ornaments. And this year I am doing it a bit different. Its not that I don’t like using polyurethane but there’s something a little extra about having pyrography ornaments be shiny. Maybe it’s because of all the twinkling lights on the trees…

Animal Doodles

Animal Doodles

I’ve been having a lot of fun creating the animal doodles – I will probably create an animal coloring book out of these when I have enough of them – but they’ll also be part of the Coloring Creatives – not all at once though as that already has roughly 30 pages in the monthly collection. It’s been healing in some ways as we are heading into the seasons when my son received his liver transplant and things went a little wonky for a bit. It’s been 12 years now and there are still parts that are healing and it happens every time just a bit more when I doodle. When we were in ICU for his recovery I started doodle like this but not…
