The past week seemed to crawl by very slowly.
The office isn't air conditioned. Luckily work has been slow.
I don't feel like driving very far with the squeaky brake on the red car, and the hot weather discourages me from walking.
I really wanted to go to the beach this week! There were some sunsets I know I missed.
This week, I looked at jewelry for sale at trendy websites, and got some ideas.
I turned these beads into these earrings:
I feel like I already made them, before.
I found a bag of rounded glass pebbles (for putting into vases,) for $1 at CVS.
I liked them because they are not flat on one side like most of those kind of pebbles.
They are not perfectly round like marbles either.
This was the only color I found.
I tried to wrap a wire round one to make a pendant.
I didn't follow a tutorial, but I saw a similar pendant at Michael's.
I didn't like how it turned out. Maybe next time.
Today was my day off for the week, so this is my weekend.
I was unhappily unable to contact Don the mechanic about my brakes.
I spent some time today drawing faces.
I'm always happy when I find time to draw!
I copied some random faces from a fashion magazine.
(The first few pages of many magazines are annoying ads for cosmetics, with big faces.)
I drew it like usual, with a watercolor crayon, and then erased it with a watercolor wash.
Then I decided to go back over it again with more watercolor crayon.
I didn't start out with a proportional face, so it ended up interesting but weird.
Drawing over again with the crayon was a different look so I tried again.
I tried to make the next drawing more in proportion.
I used a sparkly crayon which has a neat effect I like.
After I covered the drawing with watercolor:
Then I went back over it again and added details in watercolor crayon:
This is definitely how I'm feeling today!
