Bird A Week Challenge: Week 19/52

This is what I put in the birdie trinket box I made for my mother last week:

I made the little birds from paper clay – I still have quite a bit left over from the Izannah Walker doll (I am making progress).  The earrings have pressed glass flowers and fresh water pearl dangles, and are finished off with sterling crowns and swarovski crystals.

Drawing Lab 2011: Artists Choice

This weeks assignment was artists choice.  We were to work on a missed assignment, or one that presented a challenge for us.  Well, I was the recipient of April’s drawing lab  prize; a very nice set of colored pencils, eraser, and handmade journal from Jeannie.  So, I decided to do an assignment where I could use my new pencils:

This time, I used the letters from my last name.  I think the zentangle weekly challenge helped me on this one :-).
