One-line Spring Flowers

I had Easter in mind as I put together today’s nail art look. Since it was for a color challenge, the sky was the limit subject wise, so I went with flowers and a bunny from a stamping plate full of one-line images. If you don’t know what one-line is, Read More

I really should be going to bed right now, so this post is going to be short and sweet except for the large amounts of photos because omg this magnetic polish is so very pretty. And luckily pretty easy to capture, unlike my Spirit of the Wolf mani. I need Read More

I am interested in way too many challenges this month and yet there are a lot of real life things I need to get done. So…things might get messy(er) this month. I may be hitting it hard and then abruptly ghost. We’ll just have to see. One compromise I’m making Read More

Well, I have some nail art to post, but the collage hasn’t been released yet so I guess you’ll have to settle for some ZIAs. I’ve finished a little over half of the extra exercises from Beckah Krahula’s One Zentangle a Day that I committed to after Week 6 and Read More

I thought I’d be talking about art supplies today, but the post was approaching 1.5K words and I hadn’t even started writing about the last week of drawings. And is it my last week? Because Krahula’s extra exercises leave plenty of room for more art-ing. I put together a list Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 5

March 18, 2019 Lisa 2

Hello, again! I’d semi-planned to go through a list of all the tools I’ve been using for this week’s post, but I realized with one week left to go, that list could still change. So that along with my final thoughts will be in Week 6. Today we’ll talk a Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 4

We’re at Week 4 of Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day” and I haven’t fallen behind yet. But with several hobbies going at once, I’m not able to do many of the extra exercises in the book and that means no rainbows. The new colorful pens I mentioned last time? Read More

I’m still slowly working my way through Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day”, occasionally drawing the extra exercises when I have time. I’ve been through enough art courses that I don’t feel bad about skipping things, but I may revisit some of them when I’ve completed the full six weeks. Read More

As I mentioned at the start of the month, when I picked up Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day” I really just wanted to copy the patterns out into my sketchbook after going through a Zendoodle book and doing the same. I’d gone through the bulk of the book as Read More

I actually posted this to the #WhenColoursCollide FB group fairly early on during the prompt period, but I have been late about it ever since. The colors were Mint, Grey, and Yellow, so not obviously Christmas-y, but a few ladies made it work, especially @polishedcalla (sadly she hasn’t posted the Read More
