Trying to draw

I've signed up for an ATC swap. The theme is Rhinestone Cowboy and although I have loads of ideas and I can see exactly what I want in my mind, it just won't come out that way on paper!!

I'm so jealous of those who can draw....I particularly love the whimsical big eyed girls that people are drawing at the moment. I tried one. It looked like an insect!!

Today, I followed a "how to draw a cowboy" tutorial, This is what the cowboy was meant to look like.....

He's pretty good isn't he? Cool and rugged and good looking - just what you'd expect from a cowboy!

This is how mine turned out:

LOL! Oh dear........

More clART news

I'm getting there slowly but surely with the website. 

It's had a few more tweaks and I'm learning a lot more about what can and can't be done with the package we are using. One thing I don't like, though, is the way the adverts imply that it is a free site! Don't get me wrong, they do free sites but to use your own domain name you have to pay for the privilege!

Have a peek and see what you think http://www.clart.co.uk

Hmmmm.....

My first attempt at an ATC doll (using elements from www.etsy.com/listing/64243119/altered-art-kit-funny-paper)
She's ok but I messed up and she doesn't fold up small enough.....maybe I needed to make her smaller?

Get well card


Get well card, originally uploaded by jilleebee.

I made this card for a young lady who is very ill in hospital. Unfortunately I cocked up a bit in photodhop by saving the wrong way at the wrong time but I decided everything happens for a reason so I just went with it!

I hope it is bright and cheerful enough!
