Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #365 (1826)

Hello,

Happy New Year's Eve!  I hope you had a good day and evening.  Here is my circle and photo for day  #365 (1826).



The girls had some friends over tonight and it is ultimate game night at our house.  It is so much fun to listen to them.  They are having a great time and enjoying themselves.  Chris joined in for the game 'One Night Ultimate Werewolf'.  They all love the game and for me it's more fun to watch.  I am enjoying myself and taking it all in.

Here is my final drawing for the year and final drawing for Project 365.  It's been five years and I am moving on.  I finished tonight with a compilation with each of the subjects from the last five years, butterfly, watercolor, heart, star, and circle.  I am very happy with this final piece.

It is a little hard to say goodbye because I have been doing it for so long.  In a way I don't want to break the streak because I have been going for so long and it is a part of my every day now.   When I look back I have done some pretty cool things as well.  It is not always energy in though, so I am moving on and going to try something different.  I still plan on working on something at least weekly, if not adding to it daily.  I am getting a mixed media journal, and going to play with bigger pieces of mixed media art.  Using ink, watercolor, collage and whatever else inspires me.  It is a new adventure and not necessarily scary, but a change, so that makes it feel a little uneasy.  I am going to play with it though and see what happens.

If you have been following along all these years, or new to my blog, thanks so much for stopping by and joining me on my journey.  I have not decided yet if I will be posting my new journal entries.  I'll see how it goes and go with the flow.

Wishing everyone a wonderful 2018!!  Peace and happiness to all!  Thanks again for stopping by and joining me on this journey!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #364 (1825)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #364 (1825).


My fourth year was stars, and I am continuing on the same type of design for the composition.  Only one day left to close out the year.


My favorite little paper mache Santa's.  I got them quite a few years ago at a craft fair in Syracuse, NY.  They are so cool with lots of little details.

That's all for now, thanks so much for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #363 (1824)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #363 (1824).


Circles combined with my third year subject, hearts.  Very simple designs with just a few details where the two intersect.  Just two days left for the year, and it is a little hard to believe.


A chunk of one of my trees, that make up my little forrest.  It is a 7' cashmere tree.  The ends of the branches are split and fluffed, and they almost looks like snow.  It has such a soft effect and goes well with my soft hue ornaments.  It is a different look for me, but I love this tree.  It is so calm and peaceful to me.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #362 (1823)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #362 (1823).


Year two for me was watercolors.  Any subject or design, it just had to be in watercolor.  I did some pretty cool ones, looking back.  It was fun to play with them again and mix them in with my circles.


Chris and I went for a walk at the beach today.  There are some grass patches here and there, and this little flower was all by itself in one section.  It was so beautiful and the colors were striking.  We had a lovely walk and it was nice to be down at the beach again and just smell the air.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #361 (1822)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #361 (1822).


Only five days left of the year.  I decided to pay homage to my last five years by adding the subject of each year to my circles.  My first year I did 365 days of butterflies.  A fun little butterfly and circle combo tonight.  When I say it out loud, five years, wow it really is a long time to be doing this straight.  I am pretty proud of myself.  It is also cool to look over the images from the last five years and see how I have grown.


More Christmas ornaments.  Since they will all be coming down shortly, I decided to get a few more of my favorites in.

That's all for tonight.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #360 (1821)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #360 (1821).


Finishing the year out with simple designs.  Not sure what I am doing yet for next year.  Trying to decide what I want my focus to be for the year.


This cute little bird was a gift from Molly.  I have shared pictures of my other birds and this one is a great addition to my collection.  I never saw this one in the store and think it is just the cutest.  I love the little onesie and hat.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night!

Take care,
Kelly
