I simply can't be trusted to sit too long with my feet up without having my mind wander onto new projects!
After being on my feet for a while, I must get the legs as high up as I can to take down the swelling. This morning, hubby took me out for a bit-- lunch at Tim's, a drugstore visit, and a drop in to our first guild UFO day.
Here it is after having them up for over an hour. I just came outside to have my tea on the deck. I understand that some swelling is quite normal and that mine isn't too bad.
While I was inclined, on the new lazy boy, and checking my email, I was reminded of the Sketchclub App on my I Pad and of course you know that opening the App was too tempting; I started doodling. Luckily, most of my supplies are all handy, so I was able to trace off one of the doodles and make a quick foam stamp. My hands are a little shaky right now which may not be such a bad thing. It gives me permission to be less exacting, letting the lines be looser.
I think it gives it a bit more of an old world feel. I used Neocolor II crayons and spritzed it because my acrylics are downstairs. I really like the softer less defined results. And the splotches.
Now my mind is swirling with the possibilities for textile work.
I did have enough discipline to finish the fox and get it stuffed, as well as to start a raccoon before letting the creative juices flow.
I sent the hubs off to the golf course. I'll be having leftovers, likely back in the chair, lol.
I hope you're having a lovely weekend wherever you are.
