Sweetheart Anya Digital Image

Every time I draw a new Cuddlebug, I think wow this one is so much better than my last. 
This one is such an improvement. This one is my new favorite.
It seems that I always feel this way, it's comical really.

My latest illustration is, of coarse, my favorite.
I love that she started as nothing more than a doodle.
I had no intentions of an adorable beauty.
Simply scribbles that started to form an amazing girl.

PERSIMMON SPLOTCH HEART SHAPED GEMSTONE NECKLACE -

Persimmon Splotch - Raw Unakite/Granite Gemstone, Lake Michigan Heart Shape Stone, 22 Carat Gold Grommets on Brass Bead Ball Chain Necklace
What a thrill it was to find this colorful and heart shaped persimmon splotched raw Unakite/granite combination gemstone in Lake Michigan!
I have 5 mm drilled a hole to fit two 22 Carat gold grommets which house two NuGold tarnish resistant large brass jumprings, and strung it onto a brass ball bead chain. The chain undone measures 25 inches, and as worn including stone will hang 14 inches. As seen in the last picture, the stone has a nice flat back which will rest nicely as worn.

Cute Coraline Digi

I've been putting all my creative ability into my art journal lately. I find it so refreshing to take the next step and combine all the media together. It truly is a book of experimentation. I have at least half a dozen layouts in my head just waiting for me to have a little extra time to put them on paper. 
 
Currently I'm about halfway through my furbabies page set. I feel it's one of my best pieces to date. Even though I love my fairy rat mori cuddlebug on the page; I thought it might be a little more veritable if I edited the fairy out. Which was much harder to do than I thought it would be, but a little hard work paid off.
