Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #273 (1734)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #273 (1734).


A trio of waves.  I am not sure how to elaborate on these ones, but I do like the simplicity of just the way they are now, so I just might keep them like this.


Working on the beaded details of the butterflies now.  I am changing up the colors and I wanted to write down what I was using, so I had a record.  I just thought of taking a picture with the beads and butterflies together.  I don't know why it took me so long to think of this, but it is a great idea for me and the way my memory works.

That's all for me.  Dinner just arrived, time to eat.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #272 (1733)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #272 (1733).


Very simple and small waves tonight.  Not sure where I will go with these ones, but we shall see.


There was a thick fog this morning and when it started to lift, it left all the dew everywhere.  The spiders are out now and the dew just highlights their webs so nicely.  I almost walked into the one by the gate, don't look down this time of year.  ; )  I still find what they do every night to be truly amazing.  

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #271 (1732)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #271 (1732).


I wasn't sure what to do today.  I was just staring at the paper and drawing a blank.  I decided to go back and do some simple waves, they always make me happy.


The Blue Angels were practicing today down at the beach.  With all their maneuvers they end up traveling pretty far.  We could always hear them and sometimes we were treated to the show as well.  It is pretty amazing what they do.  The big air show is this weekend, so we will get the chance to see more of them.

That's all for now.  I hope you have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #270 (1731)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #270 (1731).



Day number 6 of my series of six.  This series was just about keeping the same theme.  I just adjusted them as I went and by the third one, I had the idea down of how to change them and have them progress.   They were not meant to connect this time, so it's kind of funny that two actually did connect.  A pretty cool set of six and I like them.

That's all for me.  Thanks so for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #269 (1730)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #269 (1730).


Continuing the pattern and adding a couple elements.  Can you spot the changes?  Just fun and simple.


I made my smoothie today and couldn't believe the color.  I looked down and was totally amazed that my shirt matched perfectly.  Pretty cool huh?!  It was a blueberry, blackberry and orange, protein smoothie.  It was quite yummy as well as being a beautiful color.

That's all for tonight.  Have a wonderful evening and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #268 (1729)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #268 (1729).


Continuing on the same theme for my circle and I am playing around with just adding an element.


The sunset was really pretty tonight and I went out at different times to see what I could get for photos.  The colors in the sky tonight were soft and light and very inviting.  The boys were checking things out to see what was going on.  They were watching me and of course I had to take a few pics.  The one where Tahoe looks like he is smelling the flowers is a pure accident.  Molly came out and was talking to me and he just looked down while I was snapping a few pictures.  A very cute and happy accidental photo.

That's all for now.  I am off to finish my journal for the night and then get to bed early.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #267 (1728)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #267 (1728).


Working on the same theme still for my drawings.  I think I like them when I am drawing them, but when I see the photos here, I am not so sure.  I think the would be better colored in, using some color block ideas.  Maybe I will try adding color at a later date.


Molly hanging with the boys, sharing her blanket and lounging.  A cute photo.  I used the 'fade' filter  in my photo editing app.  I'm not sure you can tell the difference unless I put them both side by side.  The contrast is a little greater and the colors a little deeper.  I am just playing around because I tend to just stick with the original photo because that is what I like best.  Always good to try new things.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #266 (1727)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #266 (1727).


I decided to go with one similar to yesterdays, to keep it simple for me.  Not very exciting these ones, but they are done.


I finished my drawing early this afternoon because our plan was to spend the afternoon and evening in Disneyland/California Adventure.  Well it was crazy crowded today.  All the fall decorations are up in both parks and the people are out to see them.  We arrived around 2pm thinking we would get a late lunch but everything was super busy.  We ended up just eating in Downtown Disney and headed home.  We will try another day.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a good night!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #265 (1726)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #265 (1726).



A different drawing tonight.  I'm not sure if I will do a similar set of six this time or random.  We got home at 9:00pm from a nutrition meeting and I felt a little behind.  I would have liked to finish earlier, so I kept it simple, not really having a plan for it.  That goes along with my photo, I didn't take any today.  My album was sitting right in from of me because I just put away the last twelve days.  The pattern on the cover stood out to me, so I said that's my photo.

That's all for me.  I hope you have a great weekend!  Thanks so much for sopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #264 (1725)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.   Here is my circle and photo for day #264 (1725).



Day 6 of 6 for my drawing and then my photo was an easy one tonight.  I knew what I was working for all week and the drawings flowed rather nicely.  I did a rough sketch of the entire six on the first day and then went into details on the other days.  If I felt I needed to add to them, I had to do that along the way so they could connect.  I can repeat this group of six (tile them), so they create a great overall pattern.  That was my goal and I plan to play with it some more.  I hope you enjoyed this fun six as much as I did.

That's all for me.  Have a wonderful night and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #263 (1724)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #263 (1724).


Day 5 of 6 and it is looking good.  Only one more day to go and then I can show you what I have been working on.  I am excited.


Four clutches almost done.  I finished glueing the frames on today.  It is a slow process and I have to be very careful.  It is a tricky balance between to little and to much glue.  Adding glue is easier than getting to much.  I then risk getting glue on the fabric and it is very difficult to get off if that happens. I try to avoid that at all costs.  

Well that's all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #262 (1723)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #262 (1723).


Day 4 of 6 for my series.  I am having fun with these ones and the days seem to be going by quickly.  I am excited to see how it all comes together on day 6.


I showed a photo of my dining table the other day and here are some of the assignments being done.  They are working on self portraits right now.  A completed project in sepia like tones and the start of a new project.  I love watching the stages and then seeing the completed project.

That's all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great evening!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #261 (1722)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day # 261 (1722).


A rather simple looking one tonight with just a few details.  It looks a little empty but will make sense in three more days.


Hannah was cleaning up her room and had a few of her favorite books from when she was younger still in her room.  I was in the kitchen picking up dinner and I hear her telling the story.  I go around the corner and there she was, the 'teacher' standing up in front of the class reading the book.  It was pretty awesome, I must say.  Molly and the boys were hanging out and listening to the tale.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #260 (1721)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my circle and photo for day #260 (1721).


Number two of six for this series.  It will be the same flow all week long.  Simple lines with leaves and those circles filling in every now and then.


Just when I think I get things clean and can keep them like that, school starts.  Alyssa has four studio classes this semester, so she will be a busy girl.  My dining room table is part of her work space, so I'm not sure how much I will see it, or get to use it this semester.  : )  It's quite fine because we are all perfectly happing eating on the couch.  : )  I do love seeing all of the work that she does, so amazing how talented she is.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #259 (1720)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #259 (1720).


The start of a new series of six.  I am excited for this new six.  I went back to some of my favorite images.  I have a plan with this six, so I am excited to see how they turn out.


Just a quick pic of a few of the wallets I have left.  There are a couple new prototypes with some different interfacings as well.  I plan on making some new ones this coming this week.

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

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #258 (1719)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #258 (1719).


The last of the series of six.  A little bit of everything from the week, nice and simple geometrics.


I piled all the pillows up to just get them out of the way and each of the boys had a different use for them today.  Tucker decided to mess the pile up a bit before he got comfortable.  : )  So cute.

That's all for me.  Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #257 (1718).



Not much to really say about these drawings this week as they are all simple with geometric shapes. :).   On to my photo.  I know I have taken pics of these before, but I just love them.  The sunset light was just starting to dance on the very top of the leaves.  I also decided to get a zoomed in pic of one of the leaves and you can see all the details in it.  I find that to be very cool and interesting.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #256 (1717)

Hello,

I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #256 (1717).



A nice early post for me today.  I was up at 4:30 this morning with Chris, who had to get up early for a flight.  I am getting pretty tired already, so I thought I would get my post done early.  A simple geometric design for my drawing, it's been nice having these simple ones this week.  The puppies had a busy day and are pretty tired.  They had a 90 minute evaluation this morning, for new training possibilities.  They did great.  Later they had a little 'spa' day if you will, which was a bath and nail trim.  When I picked them up the each had on a cute little bandana.  They looked so handsome!  You can't really see them in the photo but that's ok.  My sleeping boys.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #255 (1716)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #255 (1716).


Geometric and simple, right on plan.


I got really close to take this one and went for an abstract photo for the night.  I'm sure you can tell what it is, but I think it's pretty cool.  I like the little bit of light reflecting through the bottom and the shapes are also intriguing.

That will be all for me.  Short and sweet tonight.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #254 (1715)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #254 (1715).


Very simple geometrics for my drawing tonight.  Kind of plain but that's ok, that's what I am going for in this series of six.


The sunset had some beautiful colors playing off the clouds tonight.  Of course the camera really doesn't pick them up, but I remember them.  Just appreciating these everyday occurrences that really feed my soul.  Thankful for what I have.

Wishing everyone a lovely evening.  If you are experiencing any of the crazy things going on right now, I wish you peace and the very best.   I don't always know what to say but I am thinking of you and you are in my heart.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #253 (1714)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #253 (1714).


I went back to some really basic geometric shapes and decided to keep things real simple for six drawings.  I fit six in a scrapbook sleeve, so I thought I would try and do six with a like minded theme and see how they flowed.


I decided to pick up some bagels this morning and while I was out I also picked up some donuts.  There is a donut shop on just about every corner in Southern California, and that's not really an exaggeration.  So I stopped at a new one, on the way home from the bagel place.  They were good but I can't find anyone who does a peanut donut (glazed donut with chopped peanuts on the outside).  Maybe it's just a New York thing, but they are my favorite.  There are still a few left in the box and they made for a nice photo today.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #252 (1713)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #252 (1713).


One last bold one.  I pulled out a large sharpie marker to do the main lines for this one.  I then filled in wherever I felt like adding a little something.  I am pretty happy with this free flowing design that did not start with any pencil lines.


Tahoe found this hiding spot this morning.  Not sure why he chose it, but it worked for him for a little bit.  Maybe it was just for me, so I could get a photo.  Could be or he just really liked the spot.  : ). That's all for tonight.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #251 (1712)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #251 (1712).


I like tonight's larger, ribbon like sections.  They came together rather nicely and I have little decorative circle accents to finish it off.


A photo of some new works in progress.  They are gifts for people so I wanted to distort the photo a little and the 'process filter' as it is called, did the trick.

That's all for tonight.  I am trying to teach myself Illustrator by watching tutorials and I would like to go through another one tonight.  Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your night!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #250 (1711).


A really quick and simple drawing tonight.  It was one of those days and I just wanted to get it done.


Chris asked if I wanted to go out to dinner tonight.  It was a last minute thing and I gladly accepted.  We needed it and it was nice to get out an reconnect.  Dessert and dessert coffees for us tonight.  A very nice and much needed break.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great night!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #249 (1710)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #249 (1710).


A nice overall pattern, that was straight ink to paper.  I liked all the wave designs so much that I really didn't want to add to much to them, or fill them in.  I think it would have taken away from the flow, so I just added a few circles tonight.


Tucker snuck up on the couch tonight.  He liked the blanket and snuggled up close to it.  This couch has seen better days and I did want to get a new one, but I think I will be waiting a while now.  I wanted to get a cloth fabric couch this time around, and that just won't work with these little guys.

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

Take care,
Kelly
