My largest gesso yet!

This piece is 8.5x6 inches. I'm not sure what I'll do with it honestly. I just wanted to use some of my new larger Odd Bird Planet stamps. So I did, cuz I likes to do whatever I want.

The whole thing is on the gesso painted cardstock that I put the cool caribbean reinker into. Made a nice sky color. Then I used the tombow markers on everything. I embossed everything too. The clouds I also put liquid pearls on, just for kicks.

I wanted to show you a doodle I did too. I read the blog http://www.cuteoverload.com/. On there they have rules of cuteness. I used some on this. Especially "Your head looks down but your eyes look up" and the rule concerning Large Foreheads. So that was my intention. To simply draw the cutest head I could. Turns out Stephen, Brian and Kim all think it looks like ME! I guess this is a reflection of how painfully adorable I am. *snort* Perhaps it has more to do with the smirk. I sport a smirk pretty often.

Here's the same chick, only this time she's mad:

Oh and no worries, I can draw like 10 things and I won't show you all of them anyhow, so don't think I will start tortureing you with horrid drawings! haha.
