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,
Kelly

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,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #257 (1718)

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,

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,

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

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #250 (1711)

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,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #248 (1709)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #248 (1709).


Working with the same idea as yesterday, focusing on larger overall patterns.  The nice thing about these ones are that I try and do them freehand.  No pencil first and then inked in.  It's kind of fun to work that way, and it forces me to relax a bit more.


Tahoe was looking out the window for a little bit and then just laid down and tried to take a little rest. I let them look out the window for a few moments, as long as they are not barking.  Otherwise they are not allowed on the couch, unless they are invited.  Well this little pose got him a little more time, because I had to take a picture.  He got up about 45 seconds after I took it and on to other things.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #247 (1708)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #247 (1708).


I definitely changed things up from the last couple of weeks.  I decided for a random all over pattern for tonight.  I will probably only do six days of this style.  They are time consuming and sometimes I struggle to figure out what to add in all the spaces.  I like the look of them all filled up, but I don't necessarily want to put in that much time on each one.  I like to try and finish the drawings in under an hour, and even less when possible and with these ones, they can take much longer.


Chris and I went to the beach today.  It was less crowded today but that's because it was low 70's and overcast the entire day.  I am very happy for the break in the heat, however for me, the hot weather makes for a better beach day.  I was prepared for the sun to come out, tank top and shorts, so I was cold when it didn't' show up.  It was still great to go.  I love to just see and smell the ocean, it just makes me feel good.  There was an added bonus because Chris and I had a little lunch at one of the hotels across the street.  A wonderful afternoon, and we definitely need to do that more often.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you had a long weekend, like we did, I hope you had a fantastic one and enjoyed that extra day off!!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #246 (1707)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #246 (1707).



I needed one more day with this style, so here it is.  I need to come up with something else tomorrow, to change things up.


These are the only photos I took today, not very exciting, but I decided to go with the ones I had.  I took them so I could compare prices between stores.  I buy a lot of this stuff, so I thought it would be nice to save a few cents here and there.  : )

That's all for me.  The family is going to watch a movie together now.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #245 (1706)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #245 (1706).


I think this is the last one for a page, so I might start a new design idea tomorrow.  That means I need to come up with one, so we'll see how that goes.


Lot's of sleeping going on today, because it is so hot.  The places they pick and the positions that they can sleep in, just crack me up.  Two cuties.

That's all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Take care,

Project 365, Circles & Photo, Day #244 (1705)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my circle and photo for day #244 (1705).


A simple drawing.  It's a little difficult to draw right now because it is so muggy in the house that my hand sticks to the paper.  Not a nice feeling.  Not a bad drawing though, I rather like it.


A very hot and uncomfortable day.  The girls keep asking why we don't have AC and today I am wondering the same question.  No breeze blowing and we can't cool the house down.  This doesn't usually last to many days but right now it is a little difficult to get anything done.  I am hoping for a decent nights sleep, that's all I am thinking about now.

That's all for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly
