Just can't help myself...

This one is proving difficult... or at least I'm having a hard time leaving it alone...

I decided to color the lines blue to be more oceantastic. I know, it's not a word.



I was thinking about adding a feather and bird foot prints at the bottom... Maybe that would be too much. I'm really liking the blue lines. Keeps it focused on the pendants.

I have so many projects going on right now I feel like I'm going in 17 different directions. I was contacted to do a tile project for a book cover last month. The logistics of it are a nightmare for a right brain like myself. I can't be bothered by math and percentages, but if I want this gig I need to figure out exactly how much the clay shrinks and how much bigger my starting point has to be so the final tile is exactly 4". UGH! Then I have the web images that I really want to work on and of course the kids are home for summer and, and, and... the list just isn't ending right now which is good because it's keeping me focused! Eye of the tiger baby! Eye of the tiger!

Happy Fathers Day all you DAD's out there!

I am loving the picture just the way it is...I think adding anything else might start to be distracting...But, I love the blue lines for the drawing - very cool!

And, we finally saw Up yesterday...Since we don't have kids, we usually wait a couple of weeks so the theatre isn't as much of a madhouse...But, it was definitely worth the wait! Great movie! And, I want a baby Kevin :o)

love it very much... isn't there a saying about knowing when to stop? the ideas would be great if you weren't highlighting the pendants... so i wouldn't touch it - it's great! know what you mean about the kids being home... it's great, but i worry that i won't have time to work in some relative quiet...

I think it looks just right too!

I have my two boys home now, but my oldest will be at summer school starting tomorrow. Maybe I can get some work done.

Stretched!! I can dig that. My lovely little mermaid arrived safely the other day and I LOOOOOOOOVE her. Thanks so much for your gift of beauty into my life. Her blue is my favorite glaze color and the two precious beads you included are just perfect in their simplicity. Can't wait to imagine a place for her around my neck. Enjoy finding your peace during this energy driven time :)
