Gone to seed vers 3

Hi art friends, Way back in March, I signed up for Sebastian Michael’s Photoshop Artistry Grunge class.  I’ve learned a ton of techniques, which you may have noticed in my weekly posts. I’ve had to translate his techniques from the Adobe products into Gimp and digiKam.  So far, I’ve been able to take nearly everything […]

Hi ho, friends. Life Book Week 7 had 2 lessons.  This post is about Tam’s mini lesson, featuring a quirky bird.  I loved her Quirky Birds lesson from Life Book 2014 and had a lot of fun with this one. I watched some of this lesson.  This week was in the middle of Noir City, […]

The first two classes I took with Jane were “Frolicaholic” and “Draw Happy” art journal and basic, fun drawing classes.  One could choose to make […]

Women’s March 2017

Hi Ho friends.  I admire people who protest, but it’s not for me.  I have a severe aversion to crowds.  Today’s protest in Seattle had over 120,000 women.  I may be too freaked out by crowds to march, but I still want to show my support and voice my opinion, so I created this gal, […]

Art Dolls & So Long 2016

Hi ho lovelies. Can you believe 2016 is nearly over?  I feel a mix of relief and disbelief at the past 12 months. It’s been a pretty good year here at Tenukihandcrafts: my first gallery show was a success; I added prints to my shop; my work was published in a book about women artists […]

Art Journal Page: Feel it

I used 2 Dyan […]
