GoodMorning.........

 ... Afternoon... Evening.... whichever applies my Tea People.... How are you???? I'm pooped... been running all over creation today and its 2pm and i'm finally home and plopped down to pull a T party post together... Above is that first attempt at woodburning... I almost wish it wasn't a scrap of cracked wood.. I still might trim it off and keep it.. its kinda pretty... But now i need to see how it shows up when i stain it... stay tuned... 



Here's a lady i've been working on... This is without Gamsol ... I'm working on that now in the evenings while watching TV.... (pssst... showed her to hubby.... first thing he said ... 'she looks tired'..She does look tired... sigh figuring out eyes will be the death of me).lol  


This is a macrame plant hanger i made in California... The paint got banged up a little in the move so i'm doing a little triage ... 


Above is a stamp for a printing press... I found it at a flea mrkt in California.........Love the city scape.... 


The wood was rough looking like above...


So i stained it and painted the background black and i want to shine up the brass colored city and just set it on a shelf...


Started a Halloween canvas .... here nothing is glued down yet...figuring out placement... just the painted background is done... 


I've dug out this old canvas to work on again... some long time followers might remember it.... I'm attempting to do a canvas like the drawing...All that detail is proving a little difficult... 

Did you ever have a project just become a pain in your..... well butt??? Grrr.... so tedious and taking so long... Theres a story here and when i finish it i'll tell it to you...........    

Now its possible.... that even after our wonderful visit together you might want to stay for a second cup of T ..... if you do... I actually made a few posts this week and i hope you'll visit if one piques your interest... 

See what happened to that 'Bloody Owl'..... 
                                    or
See the deer in their winter coats........
                        or
See what's inspired a new painting......... 

Thank you Ms. Elizabeth for hosting such a lovely gathering.... I'll be around to visit... keep the kettle on! Hugs! deb

You are so talented. I don't think I have ever seen anything that you made that I did not like. I love it all.

Wow, what a great post filled with fun makes! Your tree is amazing, definitely a keeper 😁. Your lady is so pretty, I love the colour of her eyes and she looks very Zen to me. The cityscape bronze printing press stamp is such a great find, it's so cool and looks lovely mounted on the wood. I'm also loving your Halloween canvas too, the design is perfect and the neon green background is spook-takular ...lol 😉. Wishing you a relaxing and happy T Day! J 😊

Quite like that woodturning you should keep it.

Your wood burned tree is fabulous. I can't begin to believe it is a first attempt. You did a great job.

I want to use that printing press stamp on some fabric I have. I am in total awe of it. You SCORED when you bought that stamp. Thankfully the stain just added to the beauty of the brass stamp. I'm really, really in awe (have I said that before?) of this stamp.

I really like you Halloween canvas. I like the placement of the birds on the skulls. You have a good sense for these things. I think the other canvas will look good when you are finished, too. I agree that there is so much detail, it's hard to make it exactly the same as the original drawing.

You have really been busy this week, and I enjoyed every project you have worked on. I can see why you might need an extra cup of coffee or so. Thanks for sharing all this awesome art with us for T this soon-to-be Tuesday. Keep the pot on. I'm on my way over to borrow that cityscape stamp (GRIN)!

Hello! Wow, you have a lot of projects going on. My favorite is the wood burn tree. It looks so nice. I'll be interested to see the next stage of this project--do keep us posted. Happy T Day!

Linda Kunsman said...

Gosh Deb, your art is all over the place-just like mine:):) Always a good way to keep one inspired I think. Looking forward to what you do with that lovely wood burned tree piece. Happy T day!

Holy cow Deb. How you been just a little bit busy? So many fun projects, and I will say you got lucky to find that cityscape printing block. That is a find. I hope you put your feet up after you wrote this post and have a big cup of tea or coffee or even a glass of wine. Make T day a happy one. (Oh yes and I like how your tree came out too.) Hugs-Erika

Love your wood projects, so clever. You are really keeping yourself busy! Have a happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

Lorraine said...

really love your woodburning and macrame projects..something to add to the list of things to try

Lisca Meijer said...

An awesome stamp! What a find! You did good to paint the background black. It makes the brass pop. It is beautiful. That would take pride place on my shelf if I had it.
The lady indeed looks tired. Well, now you have learnt how to do tired eyes...
Happy T-Day,
Lisca

Meggymay said...

Fabulous projects , they are all so interesting. The wood burned tree should be a keeper its wonderful.
Your cityscape block was a great find, background black and brass buildings makes a great piece to show on a shelf.
Your lady may look tired but she does look lovely.
Happy T day wishes.

Your wood burning tree is awesome! Had to laugh about the tired comment. When I took a drawing class, we were given an image of a young woman to copy. When I looked at my drawing, the woman was quite matronly. It was a bit of a self-portrait. Perhaps, your tired woman is an attribute of you feeling tired. Cool cityscape. Really like your Halloween page.s Looks great! Have a Happy T Day!

Good morning, I enjoyed this fun filled art post! The woodburning looks fun-that would be nice to finish up and use somehow. We have collection of printing plates-but yours is fabulous! that will look awesome sitting on a shelf. Good luck with all of your art projects
Happy T Day Kathy

PS I Love your coffee mug!-I want one lol

Divers and Sundry said...

That's your first effort at woodburning?! I'm impressed. Definitely worth keeping, I'd say. I like your Halloween piece, too. It's almost here, and that piece captures the mood. Happy T Tuesday!

CraftyViolet said...

Love the wood burning tree. I have not tried that yet. I did have a set I won but never used it so I donated it to a charity auction....then I wished I hadn't but oh well.

We had a busy day today too - lots of errands and groceries in the pouring rain. Why do we always seem to get groceries when it's raining? Joe says, "It's just a shower and won't last long!" Four hours later its still pouring! But in a way I'm glad those errands and groceries are done for the week.

Ever thought of having an Etsy site? Your art work is awesome and I'm sure others would be willing to buy it.

Rita said...

Wow! You have been so busy! With great results. :)

a wonderful and versatile post. love the woodburnt tree... the flea market find is so great and will look wonderful when displayed! oh my, Halloween is nearing? can´t believe that...
happy belated t-day!

Carol- Beads and Birds said...

You shared a lot of neat things in this post. The cityscape was great find! I am especially interested to see what you are going to do with those corks. Are they from bottles you bought and if so, what was in the bottles? If not, then they were another great find.
xx, Carol

It's so much fun seeing you back making lots of art and crafty things! Love the flea market cityscape stamp and your wood-burned pine tree. I'm curious to learn the story of the Oriental peg people.

Hugs, Eileen

I don't think I have ever seen anything that you made that I did not like. I love it all.
