Its been a while.......

I have been remiss.......

I started a new job this year and the learning curve has been a bit steep. Its different to my usual nursing, although I am using my nursing skills to assess people I am writing reports and have to use Government speak. So I am learning what I used to call "weasel words" where you use 10 words to say what I would previously have written in 3 .....ha ha ha.
I have still been drawing and painting, but not as prolifically as I was, and instead of being one of the first to get my ATC's in the post I am becoming last. But I am getting them done. And unfortunately my scanner had an untimely death and it took a little while for me to get another.

So here are some cards that I did for the 'MacDonald's Farm' swap on Drawspace

The Little Brown Hen

Black Sheep

Yummy Honey

The Ever Vigilant Hound Dog
Gobble Gobble

ATC Swap - dogs [dachshunds]

I've been practising my ink work on ATC's for a Drawspace Swap on the topic of dogs. I decided to do .......what else.........all dachshunds. Most are Standard Smooths, but I also did a few longs and minis. Here are a few of the cards I've done so far.

I have been enjoing trying to get the expressions right and keeping the dots small enough. Until I am in the middle of playing with the images and the ink I forget how much I really do enjoy the process of making these ink images.
