I took a drafting class when I was newly married and had lots of time on my hands. I had to purchase some really good materials for the class and this was one of them. A very exact compass, which uses actual lead, no pencils get clipped onto this puppy.
After making numerous semi-circles and stenciled flowers I was ready to ENHANCE.
This reminded someone (who shall remain un-named) of those spirograph designs. I had to laugh, because by-golly he was right. It does look like a spirograph design. Just took me 100 times longer to create though.
Just a close-up view of the work-in-progress.
I had to bring some RED in, it looked a little dingy without some pop.
This one may be a little too-precise. I think I like the first one better. That’s the thing about art, you just got keep trying different things. Amazing how two similar pieces will not have the same curb-appeal, amazing!

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
