I am playing catch up on this beautiful Spring like day. I think it is technically still Winter for most people but here in Tucson, Arizona, USA it is warm and sunny! My phone says it is 66 degrees Fahrenheit outside..so that is 19 Celsius for a lot of people :) The little orange poppies came out last week and this week there are purple and yellow flowers along the road too. So that is Spring like for sure...and I am excited about that! The desert sometimes gets a bad rap for being too tan on tan with bits of brown. Totally untrue of course. But in the Spring we have the brightest crazy colors. The cactus out do themselves to put on a show! So bring on the Spring I say!
So for you visiting deskers...what is on my workdesk you say? Well..it is more like...what have you been working on. (to those who are unsure what a 'desker' is...check out Stamping Ground blog and see :) I was really ill with that stupid flu thing going around last week so I am catching up this week. I totally missed last Tuesday's Tag it Tuesday monthly link part at Cards and More by Sheri so today I made a mixed media altered tag for the link up. Better late then never right?
Yesterday I worked all day on an illustration for an upcoming family reunion. They are asking for a logo to put on t-shirts and bags and things. This is what I came up with. A family tree with owls to match the logo phrase. I used the Microsoft publisher program to make the circle and text. It took me awhile to figure that out..lol. Then I used Faber castell pitt pens in various sizes to do the picture inside. Those are some nice pens.
I did get up from my sick bed briefly to participate with the Creative Arts Collaboration group hashtag art crawl on Youtube. The theme was #lovespringart and I did not want to miss it!. I made a quick art journal page featuring the snarky bunnies from my backyard.
I guess I have bunnies on the brain as I also did a bunny for my guest appearance on the Kraaft It Live show on February 9th :)
So I guess the theme of my post today? It is SPRING and time for flowers and bunnies :)
