EDM#16 - Draw a favorite tool

EDM#16 - Draw a favorite tool - EWian

The EDM challenge#16 said: "Draw a favourite tool". The tweezers is my favourite tool. I know no other tool to replace it with. A hammer you can replace wit a rock, an axe or a crowbar. Knitting needles can be replaced with twigs, not that great to work with, but it will do the job. The tweezers, I have not found no other thing/tool that will do the job. I think I have 20 different ones, this one I got from my sister.

Medium used:2B pencil

Movie Monday#5 Winter Song

I really like this song and alto is was released on a Christmas album I consider it a winter song. It is snowing out side so I thought it would be appropriate.
This song is by Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Beth Bareilles. The titled "Winter Song" was released off the compilation The Hotel Cafe Presents Winter Songs in December 2008.

I like it when animation gets an entry to music videos. Think this one is sweet.

Remember the 2010 diary project

I was late ordering my copy. I now got my copy of the diary. Super fas delivery by the way. I decorated the cover.

My theme for the cover is "knowledges is the key"!

I completed the page that I made the sketch for and made another one. On both pages I made a faint background pattern. However they are not showing very well.

Movie Monday#2 The last knit

When knitting becomes an obsession.

I love knitting, both to knit and all the wonderful things one can make. But I am not this obsessed. Great film directed by Laura Neuvonen from Finland.

Art journal - piece of the puzzle

Piece of the puzzle - ewian

Sometimes you are given a piece, but dont know here to put it.

It can be life that gives you a piece. Even though you like the piece, it is hard to find the right place for it. You don't know how or where to fit it in.

There have been some questions/inquiry about me selling things I have made on line, and although I like the idea, I don't know how to fit that in to my life... I want to do it in a good and professional way... When you meet your customer/client face to face there is so easy to find good solution...

Medium used: watercolours, watercolour pencil, watersoluble wax pastel and permanent marker, ink pencil, puzzle pieces and acrylic.
