Heaven Help me….

Wow, I can’t believe it has been over a week since I post anything. Please forgive me, we are on wind down to school. Some how each night is filled up with getting stuff done for school the next day. The mornings (my  precious work time), well they have been taken up by either Doctor appointments for me or Mr. Ink. (sigh)

Today for the first day of Layer Love- the online class taught by the funny and talented Julie at The Land of Lost Luggage!

This is my first attempt:


After this lesson, I have learned a couple of things. I need a table top easel. Can’t see anything I am doing with the lighting in my studio with it being flat.  Second- I need studio time without the inkspots when learning something new! UGH!!!!

One last thing to share with you:


We are so lucky to have these baby birds outside our house!

****Side note: VENT:- I HATE IE- I might go insane if I have to use it again to post! Hopefully wordpress will figure out their bug with firefox*****

Thanks for stopping in:
