ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY : "Wobble"

My submission to Illustration Friday this week:  WOBBLE


I think there must be a large safety net under this guy or he wouldn't be looking so happy!  He just looks pleasantly excited, not anxious at all.

And I liked the list of 100 Things she was thankful for that Gennine did awhile back, and thought I would make my own list today, so here it is:

Setting the Turkeys Free! and other things

Monday I gave my 3 little great-nieces an art lesson --- it was so much fun!  Their ages range from 2 to 7, so first we read Setting the Turkeys Free, a really cute picture book about a little boy who makes a lot of hand-print turkeys and keeps them inside a popsicle stick fence, but has to set them free to save them from mean old Foxy the fox   :)



Then we made our own turkeys, only instead of finger paint we traced our hands and colored them in.  We gave them toothpick legs and an popsicle-stick fence   :)

Here is Aunt Joyce's turkey art:



I would have posted pix of Indi and Mela's pictures, but unfortunately I forgot my camera  :(

I've been doing some more jewelry, also.


Necklace is a narrow black satin ribbon with a loop knotted at either end.  Loops slip over a hammered copper spiral to fasten.


Some super lightweight geometric dangles.  I had a piece of 20 gauge sterling silver which I had messed up and discarded from another project, so I just bent it into zig-zags and really love how it turned out.  I've been wearing these every day for the past week!  I love long dangles, and these are so light I forget I even have them on.


Was doodling around with pen and ink on a small square of heavy watercolor paper.  Think these could make cute necklaces, with varnish and a bail added.

Shell collection

Was just looking at some of the shells from my mom's collection this morning.... I think they're beautiful.
