Create ~ Theme Thursday

Again, good intentions…not enough time. Stacy’s theme today was create, and while I have been busy creating some Halloween costumes, I did not get to create the “art” that I have had floating around in my head for the past month or so.

I use Photoshop and Illustrator nearly every day for my “real job,” so when I want to create for myself I usually gravitate towards tactile, non-computer stuff, like scrapbooking, painting or sewing. I saw a series of prints a few months ago that I wanted to rip-off borrow the idea from and re-create it in Illustrator. So when I saw Stacy’s idea this week, I was psyched. I was finally going to get a chance to sit down and do it. But my own procrastination of all of the other things that needed to get done, simply didn’t leave me with enough time to do it.

However, I am happy to report that all of the Halloween costumes are finished, pressed and anxiously awaiting two little goblins. But, I’m going to save those beauties for Crafty Tuesday next week.

I will leave you a few photos with some creations from Em’s school carnival.

Wow...that looks cool!

Best friends

    Oh the girls look like a couple of beautiful fairies! Love the face painting.

    Glad to hear your costumes are completed – that is a good feeling! I’m looking forward to seeing them next week. šŸ™‚

    WOW…that is some awesome face painting!! I always have so many ideas floating around in my head that I want to create…but, WAY to little time to do it….I guess I need to start keeping a notebook of my ideas so, one day, when the kiddos are in school, hopefully, I will have time to do some of it!

    Adorable face painting! Whoever was in charge of that at the carnival did an excellent job. They look quite the adorable fairies, rather than goblins. šŸ˜‰

    wow that is some impressive face painting. I love the picture of Em and her friend. You’re going to have to give me some tips on Illustrator. I have it now but haven’t had time for the learning curve. (In fact I just got the upgrade to CS4 yesterday)

    Hey, you did better than me! I didn’t even participate in TT this week. AND, I didn’t make any Halloween costumes – can’t wait to see them!!

    Those are two of the cutest little fairies I’ve ever seen, and some of the coolest face paint ever. Wow!

    Oh now you see? THAT is real face painting! Wait a minute while I get my paints out and practice on my arm again……I reckon I could do that pink one…:-)
